Humans are generally cautious creatures, so long-term investment is not an easy path for many of us. And when future financial security hinges on the success of investing decisions, this explains why so many people approach the financial services industry with fear and caution.
Fortunately, the right wealth management advice coupled with a commitment to education can help investors learn about discipline and how to keep to their financial and retirement plans.
A detached relationship with your adviser is unlikely to help you stay disciplined to your long-term investment strategy. If your adviser is not an effective communicator, you may have less faith in his or her financial planning strategies. If your adviser is not able to provide extensive client education, you may have trouble learning about their approach to investing and how it can benefit you.
The digital age has brought many benefits to the investment services industry, especially for the self-directed investor, but with some firms it has only served to increase the distance between client and adviser. For example, robo-advisers have become more common, bringing advisory services to a new audience, but many have diminished the possibility for the development of meaningful human relationships between adviser and client built on trust and communication.
It is our belief that some investors need these elements if they are going to successfully navigate capital markets and avoid common behavioural mistakes. We believe advisers should help create goal-focused investment strategies and provide their clients with high-touch, proactive client service and education.
Fisher Investments UK listens to our prospective clients so that we understand their individual needs and concerns. Fisher Investments UK may be able to assess your long term investment needs and objectives.

This step helps frame the analysis relative to what you need from your portfolio over time. We then assess your current investment portfolio’s asset allocation, diversification and fee structure. This in-depth analysis helps evaluate how your investment portfolio might meet your goals or where it might fall short.

Investing in financial markets involves the risk of loss and there is no guarantee that all or any capital invested will be repaid. Past performance neither guarantees nor reliably indicates future performance. The value of investments and the income from them will fluctuate with world financial markets and international currency exchange rates.
