Benefits of Hiring Multiple Investment Advisors

An investor is interested in making an investment which he believes will multiply with increasing profitability. If the Return on Investment (ROI) is low, then he might pull out his investment or sell his business to some other party.

Therefore, investment decisions are both risky and critical. If investment decisions are made with caution, then even a little amount of investment can result in massive profits. However, if caution is not exercised, then even a large amount of investment can result in very low profitability or even loss for the business.

Investments are made to generate profits, and profit making investments are difficult to identify in the market

Investment Factors

There are many factors that need to be considered when making an investment. This may involve understanding the market dynamics, identifying potential key stakeholders, identifying investment opportunities, calculating return on investments under each option, making investment in options offering a high rate of return, and achieving optimum profits through investments.

The Final Goal

Therefore, the final goal of any investment is to maximize profits. This is not an easy goal to achieve obviously, especially for those who have money to invest but are not well-versed in market dynamics. For this reason, many people subscribe to the services of investment advisors, who perform the required market research on their behalf and make investments accordingly.

Investment Advisor’s Role

The role of an investment advisor is critical because it’s her job to maximize the profit for investors. It is likely that a preference exists to hire those investors who are more qualified and experienced in this regard, depending upon the amount planned to be invested.

However, this does not mean their analysis is foolproof. Even qualified and experienced investors can make wrong investment decisions, causing significant losses for investors.

How to Reduce This Risk

This risk, however, could be reduced if multiple investment advisors are hired for investment decision purpose. Because each advisor comes at a price, therefore, hiring multiple investment advisors may not be a good idea for retail investors who already have a significantly low investment amount.

They may establish their investment businesses through one advisor only, preferably someone with whom they can develop a relationship of trust. Investors who have large investment amounts get more benefits out of multiple investment advisors because their investment amount is not stuck under limited number of products, rather they get the benefit of earning profits from a pool of investments.

Benefits of Hiring Multiple Investment Advisors

Multiple investment advisors are cumulatively equipped with diverse expertise and knowledge of the market. This involves information related to existing and new market products and their past data. These investment advisors can collectively provide a more comprehensive advice related to return on investment on a wider range of products, enabling the investor to have better knowledge of products which are presented to him.

The risk of getting your amount stuck in a limited range of products is minimized. Some advisors prefer investor’s amount to be invested in products where commission for the advisor is given. In such case, the investor is usually unaware of this fact and his whole investment is subject to the performance of that product in market, which may or may not perform well. If market conditions are not favorable with respect to that product, the investment amount bears significant losses.

When multiple advisors are involved, you can rest assured that they will conduct thorough research with respect to profit maximizing opportunities available to their investor client.

Multiple advisors provide a much better market analysis compare to that provided by a single advisor, as input of multiple advisors is taken into consideration. These advisors are not only aware of the many products available in the market, but also about the socio-economic, technological, and legal factors involved in conducting such trades. Therefore, a complete picture of the dynamics governing the market is provided by them, which is a monumental task for an individual advisor.

Lastly, having multiple advisors will also help in developing an understanding of the timeline during which an investment should best be made. For example, market dynamics may not be favorable for the making of short term investments, but maybe they prove favorable for long term investments. Similarly, decisions such as keeping the amount invested in for the long term or withholding the investment amount in the short term could also be made through the input of advisors.
