Can you tell if your Financial Advisor is worth it?

  • Traders who don’t possess the financial knowledge and skills to trade in the stock market choose to opt for a financial advisor or research analyst to trade in the stock market.

    By using an advisor’s recommendation trader buy or sell a financial asset in believing to make profits from their trade.

    But, buying or selling on someone else’s recommendation is risky. One miscalculation and you could lose the entire capital. Financial planning needs to be done systematically.

    So, is there is a way to check the performance to the financial advisor?

    How to know if the financial advisor is worth it or not?

    Well, there aren’t many platforms that offer user such facility to assess the performance of the financial advisor except few like Advisorymandi.

  • Advisory is a very nascent industry in India and I dont think that a lot of people are going through advisors. Also, analysing how much return did an advisor give over and above index is not a trivial task. Better go with ETFs, rather than the pain of researching advisors etc for 1-2% extra returns(that too also will not happen in most of the cases).

  • @ishaantsingh013 We need to select a financial planner with utmost care. It's our hard earned money. So, going for a good financial advisor will surely help. I'll surely have a look at this app you are suggesting.
    Any feedback on Which financial advisor is better? Any idea about Robo advisors, hearing a lot about robo advisory these days.

  • Hi, You can do good without a financial planner only if you are a DIY (Do-it-Yourself) investor. I mean, you need to have ample of knowledge about investments and personal finance. Without that, you are likely to make mistakes.
    So, I feel getting good professional advice to manage our finances seems a better option.

  • I think it really depends on the whole situation, if you are just some small man with some small money why on earth do you need some financial advisor anyway ? What he can advise to you that you can't DIY ? Other case where you are busy person and do not have time to deal with all that research
