OVERHEARD IN THE DOCTOR’S LOUNGE

[The White Coat Investor]*

Dahle

James M. Dahle MD FACEP

Although I think a physician is perfectly capable of doing his own financial planning and investment management, the majority of doctors want, and would benefit from hiring a competent, fiduciary, fee-only advisor who can give them good advice at a fair price. The more familiar an advisor is with the unique financial planning issues associated with physicians, such as properly managing hundreds of thousands of dollars in students loans and acquiring specialty-specific disability insurance, the better.

Unfortunately, it is surprisingly difficult for a doctor to hire such an advisor as the vast majority of those who bill themselves as financial advisors are little more than commissioned mutual fund or insurance salesmen. Many of these so-called advisors state that they “specialize in physicians,” but in reality, merely specialize in marketing to physicians.

To make matters worse, a doctor may assume that these advisors are trained professionals comparable to accountants, attorneys, or physicians, when in reality the advisor may only have a few days of formal training, and most of that in sales.

Assessment

Obtaining high-quality, physician-specific, financial advice offered at a fair price sometimes seems like trying to find the Holy Grail.

*NOTE: The white coat ceremony is a medical school ritual that marks the transition from the study of preclinical to clinical health sciences. WCCs typically involve a formal “robing” or “cloaking” of students in white coats, the garb doctors have traditionally worn for over a century.
