What Is a Wealth Manager's Role?

When you decide to incorporate wealth management services into your life, you’ll work with a knowledgeable adviser to plan for your financial well-being. A wealth manager is a person who will guide people seeking assistance on financial planning, retirement planning, investment management and help in other ways to preserve your finances.

A wealth manager can work under different job titles, like a financial adviser or financial consultant. These titles vary based on what company you choose for your wealth management services.

A wealth manager will take on the responsibilities of maintaining a relationship with you, walking you through account details and offering beneficial advice on your investments. A wealth manager will have the skills and knowledge to extensively explain financial information. 

What Makes a Good Wealth Manager?

Hiring a professional and successful wealth manager will ensure you have the best plan for your finances. You’ve spent years working hard to gain the money you have today, and you want to put your trust in someone who will provide excellent, unbiased advice in your best interest.

Depositing money into a savings account every month may not be sufficient to achieve your financial goals in the future, including ensuring you have enough money to retire comfortably. A knowledgeable wealth manager can help you achieve your dreams by offering expertise and guidance.

What do wealth managers do to be successful? Here are the top five qualities that make it worthwhile to seek the services of a trustworthy wealth manager.

1. Knowledge

It may be self-evident that your wealth manager should have financial knowledge to provide the best service, but you’ll want to ask how long they’ve been in the industry, their certifications and the results they’ve achieved for other clients.

Knowledge is essential in the wealth management business. With all the ways to invest money, a wealth manager must understand your options and suggest the best one for your situation.

A competent wealth manager will also take the time to better themselves and broaden their knowledge by continuing their education, accomplishing research and completing more certifications. 

2. Experience

With most things in life, the best way to learn is by doing. Some of the most successful wealth managers have worked with numerous clients and have been in the industry for years, so they know many details that will help in your financial endeavors.

A reputable wealth manager will stay by your side as you navigate all the peaks and valleys of the market. That’s why an experienced wealth manager is crucial for your long-term plan. They will know how to steer your savings in the right direction, regardless of the world’s current financial climate.

3. Integrity

You want your investments and financial plan to be successful, and integrity is one of the foremost qualities a wealth manager can have to achieve those goals. Ultimately, you want someone who has your best interests at heart and wants to see you succeed.

A wealth manager working in a fiduciary capacity will prioritize your needs, acting on your behalf to make decisions that will benefit you in the long run. All Financial Advisors have a duty to be ethical; however, a wealth manager who is fee-based charges for their ongoing services and is a fiduciary which can be a stark contrast to companies that take a commission-based approach to sell products. 

When you’re seeking a wealth manager, look for the title CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ as a credential. A CFP® is likely to uphold qualities such as integrity and honor. You can also gauge the motives a wealth manager has based on your initial conversations. They should express concerns about your goals and you as a person.

4. Strategy

To achieve maximal financial success, your wealth manager should be excellent at strategic planning. A wealth manager with finely honed situational awareness can be a crucial asset to your financial success.

While the ultimate goal is to make more money, the strategy should encompass more than a get-rich-quick approach. A talented wealth manager will have the knowledge and experience to create a game plan that incorporates information from your current, past and future finances as well as your estate planning documents/plans for your legacy. 

Your wealth manager should also include your retirement accounts and tax information to create the best blueprint for your situation. 

A risk review of all insurance policies will also be something an experienced wealth manager will incorporate into your overall strategy. 

5. Team-Oriented Approach

Finding an outstanding wealth manager is critical, but it’s equally vital to select a company with a talented team of wealth managers. A team of financial professionals who work toward the same goal of providing the best service for their clients is a quality group to trust with your hard-earned money.

When your wealth adviser has an experienced and dedicated team surrounding them, they’ll have access to helpful resources and information to improve the service they provide you.

If you look for these qualities in your wealth manager, you’ll surely find someone you can have confidence in and rest assured they’ll take care of you and your finances.

Advantages of Wealth Management

People choose to work with a wealth manager to relieve them of the stress of managing their finances. Along with that, you’ll appreciate these notable benefits of wealth management.
