Financial market is complex.  Fund Managers keep things simple & easy for you.  Maybe you are good in investments:

  • You could construct a portfolio
  • You know how to buy stocks from United States, United Kingdom, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and even Brazil and Indonesia

But:

  • Can you buy a portfolio of diversified bonds?
  • How do you manage foreign exchange, interest rate and credit risk?
  • How much time does it take to diversify $10,000 into 10 or 30 stocks or bonds?
  • What happens if there is a rights issue, default or bankruptcy?
  • How do you value the individual security when there is a capital control or new tax implementation?

CAN YOU BUY A PORTFOLIO OF DIVERSIFIED BONDS?

Fund Managers keep all these questions and answers away from you.  You don’t even have to deal with it.  Fund Managers do the professional investment management, while you focus on delivering wealth advice to your clients.
