Studies show that 70 percent of women will leave their financial advisor after a major life change, such as the death of a spouse or divorce. Major life transitions bring enough stress and emotion without adding the need to find a new financial advisor or to master your finances. As women also generally outlive men, this longer life expectancy means you will at some point likely require financial counsel.

Here are some steps you can take to help ensure that your relationship with your advisor is fruitful and fulfilling, along with some key attributes to seek in a potential replacement.
