The short answer is that wealth management services are not at all necessary. They are totally optional services that some investors may choose to obtain. But wise investors would never hesitate to get a wealth manager to work for them.
What Does a Wealth Manager Do Exactly?
In the simplest terms, a wealth manager is an advisor who helps investors preserve and grow their wealth and achieve their financial goals, from a comfortable retirement, to funding children’s education, or caring for family and generations to come.
A wealth manager starts by assessing your financial situation, objectives, and risk appetite, and then proposes a holistic investment strategy to protect and grow your wealth. Depending on what the investor needs, a wealth manager may advise on investment planning, retirement planning, estate planning, etc.
The next step is to implement your investment strategy and manage your investment portfolio to ensure it remains within your risk parameters and objectives.
Meanwhile, you are free to focus on everything else in your life.
Is Wealth Management Expensive?
Everyone must work for a living and wealth managers are no different. Can you afford them?
The good news is that good wealth managers pay for themselves. Investors rarely pay for their wealth managers from their own pocket. The fees are usually paid from the enhanced risk-adjusted returns, especially in times of recession and volatility.
Who Needs a Wealth Manager?
Unless you’re an investment professional, you should delegate the management of your wealth to a trusted wealth manager and focus on more important things in your life.
