Investment Advisory Services

What does it mean?

Investment advisory services render advice to a client based on his risk appetite, return expectations and suitability of investments. Advisory fees are charged to a client for these services. This provides for better accountability to a client and can result in a transparent and beneficial relationship between the client and advisor. An advisor will also have to ensure that his performance justifies the advisory fees charged to a client.

How Do Investment Advisors Work?

Investment advisors work as professionals within the financial industry and guide clients and are required to put their client’s interest above all. Investment advisors are often asked to ensure that the clients’ transactions are given the topmost priority over theirs and any guidance or recommendations given to the clients are well tailored according to the client’s needs, preferences and financial circumstances.
The advisor suggests various potential investment strategies that are designed according to your goals and preferences and best meet your investment needs.
