When do you need wealth management?
Wealth management is so much more than simply offering financial advice and it’s best suited to those that need diverse and specific services to manage multiple areas of wealth. For example, you might need an advisor for stocks & shares, a property advisor, and a financial advisor to give you tailored advice in each area.
Also, because wealth management involves a range of services and expert advice, it can become costly. Therefore, many people turn to these services when they have accumulated a large amount of savings, or are ready to make a big financial decision like retirement.
Many wealth managers also have minimum asset requirements too, which is the amount of capital a prospective client must have before they’re eligible for wealth management services.
