Please help build a directory of SEBI Registered Fee-only Financial planners

Freefincal promotes professional financial advisory which is compliant with SEBI regulations as much as it promotes DIY investing. Since May 2014, I have maintained a short list of fee-only financial planners and I am glad to note that several readers have sought their services.

I  would now like to build a much wider database of SEBI registered fee-only financial planners. In the past year, has received about 6.25 Lakh visitors and the readership is growing at a healthy pace. I would like to provide a visibility platform for all SEBI registered fee-only financial planners by providing them a visibility platform. Each month I receive anywhere between 4-8 requests for fee-only financial planners. A directory will help me connect investors with advisory professionals.

If you are a SEBI registered investment adviser  (individual only, not corporates), please consider joining this directory.  I also request that you share this post within your circles. SEBI RIAs will also receive an email from me in this regard.
