What is a Financial Adviser Representative and What Financial Consulting Services Do They Provide?
Any money-savvy individual would appreciate a good professional opinion when it comes to their finances. Obtaining advice from a financial advisory professional can be extremely helpful to those looking to grow one’s wealth, make wise investment choices and save for one’s future. In these cases, engaging a financial adviser representative who offer a wide suite of financial consulting services for you can be the best option.
In Singapore, a financial adviser is governed by the Financial Advisers Act (“FA Act”) and regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Under the FA Act, the “financial adviser” is the firm that offers financial advice.
On the other hand, a financial adviser representative is the individual who meets clients and provides them with professional financial advice. They are also known as “financial consultants”. Financial adviser representatives will collect your financial data and analyse your financial situation in order to determine how you can best channel resources to meet your financial goals, and help you implement customised solutions which include investments (assets and income), insurance (protection against catastrophic expenses) and estate planning (asset distribution).
