If you have hopes and dreams of a secure financial future, you will almost certainly have to put a sound investment strategy in place. You are also going to require some investment advice, but not all investment advice is created equal.
Naturally, investors are often confused when making important decisions because investment advice often differs from adviser to adviser. Should you invest everything in a low-yielding savings account or seek more growth in the stock market? What about bonds or exchange-traded funds? Unfortunately, some investment advice or recommendations, though well-intended, may not be the best available option for each individual client. But investment advice should, first and foremost, be about helping clients reach their individual financial goals—something many rules of thumb fail to accomplish.
At Fisher Investments Canada, we believe good advice starts with a combination of rigorous analysis, a keen understanding of your long-term financial goals and a desire to better the investment universe through investor education. If nothing else, we hope to help you better decipher the helpful investment advice from the unhelpful.
Too often, advisers ask investors to blindly trust investment advice, which can lead to confusion and frustration. Fisher Investments Canada is committed to educating investors and communicating investment decisions in order to avoid this situation. Education is a key part of the Fisher organisation’s high-touch client service model, and whether investors are looking for retirement planning services or simply want to learn about financial markets, we can help.
