INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Advisory Management'

Investment advisors who work for advisory management groups will assess a client's time horizon, performance objectives and risk tolerance to determine which asset classes will be the most suitable investments. They will also provide guidance in the areas of asset allocation and portfolio rebalancing, and they will monitor investment performance and execute orders. Advisory management services allow individuals to retain full control over their portfolios and make their own investment decisions; the investment advisor's role is solely to offer an informed opinion.
