Why Should I Use A Stockbroker?
Although many know what a stockbroker is, the question of “why should I use a stockbroker” is often left unanswered. Understanding what a stockbroker can offer to your investment process will better equip you to decide if and when to include a stockbroker in your investments.
At Hedley & Co we are passionate about the advantages that we may be able to add to your investment decisions.
Advantages Of Using A Stockbroker
Investments are complex. Using a stockbroker can have so many benefits. Understanding the why is often at the root of most human decisions - before turning to a stockbroker and their services, it is understandable for one to want to understand what they get out of it.
Humans are beings of incentives, and understanding how you will benefit from a specific transaction often guides decision making.
With that being said, why should you use a stockbroker?
Broader Financial Advice
Using a stockbroker to guide your money management means you have access to their broad knowledge of stocks, shares and investments. Stockbrokers often come with a variety of resources that you may not have access to - making the process easier but also contributing to investing success.
Their understanding of investing means they may offer specialist advice and information on investment choices.
Only A Phone Call Away
Another reason why you should use a stockbroker is ease. When investing, you need an understanding of markets, liquidity and trading platforms. Using a stockbroker can offer you that, all under one roof. Liaising with those who have a wide knowledge of multiple platforms and the ability to access optimum prices makes the process much easier.
Streamlining and simplifying money management is a huge advantage of using a stockbroker.
Access To A Wider Network
Stockbrokers have access to a bigger network, sometimes including the foreign markets. Being able to invest in markets you wouldn’t particularly have access to if dealing with them alone can largely contribute to your investment success. Using a stockbroker could offer an extensive list of stock options.
Offering versatility with your investments across the globe is a huge benefit that you wouldn’t necessarily get without using a stockbroker.
Managing your money is no mean feat, keeping on top of different platforms and where you are investing your money can be complex and difficult to keep on top of. One of the main advantages of using a stockbroker is in fact really simple - record keeping.
Depending on the approach that the specific brokers follow, stockbrokers can keep records of trades and investment activity - meaning you don’t have to.
