In today’s world, all aspects of our daily existence are enmeshed in complications. And it is for this reason that we go out seeking for advice. While some of these advices can be received from our friends, acquaintances etc. the others are to be derived from experts. The reason for the rise in expert consultancy in certain spheres is the nature of the field.

One such field is that of finance. The financial sector is not only complex but also dynamic. The nature of assets and the trends related to their status is ever changing and is dependent upon varied factors. The factors may range not only from the financial health of the economies and firms but also political climate, fiscal expectations, anticipation relating to the market etc. And thus to study these processes in light of the current trends, a specific set of skills are required. These skills are acquired through training and experience. It is these skills that a financial advisor brings to the table, for his clients.

Who is a Financial Advisor?

A financial advisor is a professional, who is responsible for providing advises on an individual or entity’s finances. A financial advisor helps the individuals or entities, who are seeking his advice, reach their financial goals in the most efficient and in the fastest way possible. These goals may range between anything from increasing wealth to reducing debt or minimizing the tax burden. An independent financial advisor is capable of delivering advice on all possible financing options and financial products. But a restricted financial advisor is bound by his affiliation to any particular institution and is capable of providing advice on a limited range of financial products. With the coming of AI and advanced methods of analytics, financial advice is often accessed by clients through digital platforms. However, the role of financial advisors as a service provider remains important in either way.

Why do you need a Financial Advisor?

To answer this question we should look at the various roles played by financial advisors, online or otherwise.

  • Identifying financial goals- A financial advisor can help his clients identify the most viable financial targets, based on their present financial status. And the advisor can help them chalk out a road map for achieving it. Thus for beginners in this sector, seeking financial advice is inevitable.
  • Knowledge of trends and complexities- The financial advisors are aware of the working of the regional and global financial markets. They are aware of how certain instruments work, and the situations and circumstances under which they might yield the best results. Moreover, they keep track of the trends in the market, to make the best move at the most opportune moment. In this respect, even long timers might have certain advice to gain from the experts, who are used to studying the financial markets as a part of their vocation.
  • Efficiency- And finally, being professionals they can efficiently help you diversify, manage and control your portfolio, which would require a non-professional much more time and effort. In this way, a lot of effort is saved.

Therefore, for most people involved in substantial financial investments, whether a veteran or a novice, a financial advisor is necessary. To quote an example of an amazing financial planner who needs no introduction is Ed Rempel. In regard to Ed Rempel Brampton, all we can say is that he is a certified financial planner, and also blogs according to his experiences and shares meaningful insights.
