For Investors With Advisors Or Brokers/Salespeople Who May Lack Competency:

Many Advisors Or Brokers/Salespeople May Not have the Ability to Guide Investors Thourgh Volatile Markets.  Therefore, The Investor’s Investment Needs Are Oftentimes Not Being Appropriately Addressed.

 

Too Often, these So-Called “Advisors” Lack Knowledge of How The Investment Markets Work, Investment Taxation, Economic Understanding, Investment Product Costs, Trading Inefficiencies and Many Other Complex Areas.

 

For Investors That Self-Manage Their Monies:

Different Problems Arise for Those Individuals Who Manage Their Monies Themselves.  Among the Many Complications that Such Investors Face Include the Following: Market Movement Complexity and Ever Expanding Investment Choices, the Fact that an Individual May Lack Sophisticated Investment Analysis Tools and Training, a Shortage of Time Devoted to the Investment Process (Reading, Analyzation of Securities, Financial Markets, Training, Etc.), Lack of Education When Trading Securities and the Knowledge of How to Minimize Some or All Aspects of Investment-Related Income Taxes and Expenses (Costs) as well as Fear When it Comes to Making Changes to Their Portfolio.
