What Are Wealth Management Solutions?

Services can include — but aren’t limited to — advice on financial planning including retirement and investment strategies, estate planning, tax and accounting services and more. Often, the wealth manager relies on a team of specialists, including accountants, securities brokers, insurance, and estate planning professionals to determine the best course of action in managing a client’s wealth and assets.

The Difference Between Asset Management and Wealth Management

In short, asset management is when a financial institution such as an investment bank directs an individual’s securities and cash. Often, these institutions vary between offering traditional and alternative products unavailable to most investors. Asset managers oversee fixed income, equity, real estate commodities and other investments.

More than just investment advice, wealth management is an all-encompassing approach to an individual’s financial life. This can include advice on finances and investments, but also tax/accounting services, planning for retirement, legal and estate planning. This umbrella approach ensures an individual’s wealth is being overseen by a single wealth manager or close-knit team.
