Investment Advice

Get Your Investments On Track

At some point in your life, you have plans to invest some of your wealth. This practice is something that every adult in the UK may have considered one way or another. However, most of us don’t know how to get started. People lack the most basic knowledge since investment is not usually taught in schools.

Thankfully, you have us at Consilium Asset Management to provide insightful, impartial, and independent investing advice to help you reach your financial goals. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.

What is Investment Advice?
Investment advice is education, guidance, and recommendations that help a person understand an investment product or strategy. The advice can come from a professional, like our team of financial advisors. However, most people’s first experience with investment advice is through a friend, an internet forum, or conversations with someone who knows about the topic.

Working with experts like our financial advisors is best if you want investment advice tailored to your goals. We take a personalised approach, knowing that no two investors are alike. Each person can have varying risk appetites, outlooks on sustainability, and financial situations. To meet each investor’s needs, we design portfolios customised for them.

Ways That Our Investment Advice Can Help You
Many start investing with little to no knowledge of what to do, what products to choose, and what strategies to employ. When people start learning, they find that asset classes are difficult to grasp, performance often doesn’t make sense, and the outcomes of specific investments are impossible to predict. No one is to blame for this lack of knowledge since investment is not easily taught.

At Consilium Asset Management, we don’t just give you recommendations on where to invest; we provide the education you need to address the knowledge gap mentioned above. We provide coaching and guidance while we place money in funds that suit your needs. That way, you’ll understand the reasoning behind our actions and get an in-depth understanding of the process.

The initial call enables us to find out more about you and how we might be able to help you. The meeting is provided at our expense, and you have no obligation.

Overall Risk Profile: Deciding How Much Risk To Take
One of the most essential aspects of investing we focus on is managing risk, which is the uncertainty that could result in financial loss. Those just starting an investment take too much risk or have a lax attitude toward risk. Thankfully, you have us to provide insight on how much risk you should take. Here are three factors we consider:

Attitude to investment risk: This metric measures how comfortable you are with certain levels of risk. We’ll assess your feelings during economic turmoil or downturns and develop a definitive score.
Capacity for loss: How much will you lose based on your financial situation? Those with more savings have a high capacity for loss, and the inverse is true for those who might be financially struggling.
Need to Take Risk: This score is based on the returns you need to reach your financial goals.
Based on your scores from these factors, we’ll arrive at your overall risk profile and use this value to create the right kind of portfolio for you. We’ll also try to understand your attitudes toward sustainable investing so we can design a portfolio with investments that positively contribute to our society.

Our area of expertise
As part of our mission to educate clients, we provide investment advice on various investment products and approaches available today. Here are some of the investment topics we discuss with investors.

Fixed-income Investments
Bond investing is one of the most well-known approaches to investing. However, it’s just one of the many types of fixed-income investments. These securities pay investors fixed dividend payments until they mature, hence the name. Bonds, money market funds, and certificates of deposit (CD) accounts are examples of fixed-income investments. These all preserve capital and income, so they come with less risk than stocks.

Along with the lower risk are lower returns, a fact you must understand if you want to invest in bonds and other fixed-income investments. However, a diversified portfolio may help you achieve your financial goals even with low-return investments.

Tax-free Investments
Getting dividends from your investments means you’re also earning income, and taxes come with income. Thankfully, certain investments help you avoid taxes for capital gains or dividends. Others are more tax-efficient, so you won’t need to pay much. Some examples of these are municipal bonds and tax-exempt mutual funds. We’ll provide the advice and guidance you need to get started on a tax-free investment.

Investing for Income
There are a few ways you can make money from investments. One of the most well-known is the return on capital and interest, a one-time payout after an investment reaches maturity. However, you can also invest to receive consistent and regular income. We can help you find products that let you invest for income so you can get dividends monthly, annually, or at whatever frequency you prefer.

Investment Criteria
Not all types of investments are the same. At Consilium Asset Management, we can help you create your own investment criteria so you can determine the best types of products to invest in. These requirements will help you assess investment opportunities and eliminate ones that do not fit your financial goals.
