Important Career Decision
Earlier I used to work for an investment broking company.They work based on targets they've taken from various companies(accepting company deposits/MF companies).So as an employee I'm forced to sell the schemes for which they've taken a huge target.
I was not able to do justice to clients.Irrespective of clients` needs,I've to recommend schemes for which my earlier company had targets. There is no advisory part happening.
Also investors have the habit of doing investments thru different brokers.Say for insurance, there will be an insurance broker, for MFs the investors will have a diff broker & for a stock broking a/c they've diff broker.So no one except himself knows the complete picture of client.
If I need to do only investment advisory then that will not be complete&comprehensive.That's why precisely I've set up as a financial planning & wealth management firm where we'll get to know the big picture of client &will be able to come out with end to end solution
