Whether you are an experienced investor looking for new investment ideas or completely new to investing, there are many ways in which you can invest their money.

The list of choices, strategies and investment vehicles available to you almost seems endless. And with all of these choices available, there are many paths you can take to ensure your portfolio is properly diversified. But with so many investment options, where do you start?

As with making any other purchases, the starting point for many people buying into investments is to undertake their own research. Another approach you can take is to engage a professional to help out – whether that is a financial adviser, stockbroker or a professional investment manager. In this article, we will explore the role of professional investment managers and how they can help you.

Making use of a professional investment manager is about more than just saving time.

Many investors experience feelings of regret when they miss an opportunity to invest or take other actions within their portfolio. As well, some are prone to being emotionally reactive during times of market volatility rather than sticking with their long term investment plans. When an investment portfolio, or part of it, is being managed by a portfolio manager, an investor can feel peace of mind knowing that the manager will be able to respond quickly to market changes and theme shifts or have the resolve to stay with their strategy.

If you’ve been experiencing any anxiety around the recent movement of the share market, choosing to get some help with your long term strategy via professional investment management could be an option to help you achieve your goals. You can utilise these portfolio managers to help you stay on track with your goals and to maintain your investment strategy – whatever that may be.

Ultimately using a professional manager for some or all of your investment management can be easy, especially on a super and investment platform like Netwealth. But like any investment decision, it is always important to seek out appropriate information or advice before making any decision.
