Dear Fred

Hi Fred, It will eventually be in my clients' best interests for me to be a part of a team, a partnership of 2 or more financial advisors. I'm operating under the belief that any partnership I enter into must only be with other Believers, and that's proving difficult.

Fred's Response

As long as the partnership is operated on scriptural principles of honesty, value and virtue I think it can be successful, including with men of integrity who are not believers. If by "team" you mean different individuals who contribute their expertise for the good of the client I think that is different than a legal partnership. I have always believed that the "unequally yoked" referred to marriage, and not necessarily to business.
