What is Investment Advice?
Investment Advice refers to the information, research, and guidance given by a professionally trained and registered individual to a client on the investment products for their portfolio.
Investment advice can be professional where a client hires a professional advisor to provide advice regarding the quality and suitability of investment products for their portfolio. Investment advice can also be of a do-it-yourself nature where the client compiles information from various sources to make informed decisions about the investment products they hold in their portfolio.
Should you be using an Investment Advisor?
You should use an IIROC registered Investment Advisor to manage your investment accounts if you wish to have peace of mind in delegating the responsibility of choosing and monitoring the quality and suitability of the investment products in your portfolio to generate a return and meet your goals and objectives.
IIROC advisors are able to offer a wide range of products and services, ranging from mutual funds, guaranteed investment certificates, stocks, bonds, ETFs, and more complex alternatives. Only those individuals with the necessary training and education receive IIROC approval. IIROC advisors must also pass financial, professional, and personal background checks before they can be registered to work at IIROC firms.
