SEC-Registered Investment Advisor
Know that your wealth is in good hands.
Your wealth is important. If you are serious about your life goals, financial planning and investments are probably important to you. Financial planning can involve many steps from tax optimization to asset protection. Different investments have different rules with different returns.
With the help of financial planning, you will be able to predict where you will be in the years to come by evaluating where you are currently, what sources of income you plan to have in the future, investments you plan to make, and your retirement plans.
At Alpen Partners, we believe the journey though financial planning and investment shouldn’t be done alone. Whether you are well-educated in the world of finance or you are just hoping to earn money through simple investment, an advisor can be by your side, guiding you through every step.
When looking for a wealth manager, don’t you want to know that your investments and wealth are in good hands? So do we. That is why Alpen Partners has chosen to register with the Securities and Exchange Commission as an investment advisor. SEC-registered advisors are certified and tested and can offer elite financial planning and investment advice.
When seeking help, it’s in your best interest to choose one that has dedicated themselves to your prosperity. That’s why you should choose a registered advisor. In order for our clients to know they are making the best decision in terms of your investment, we’ve gathered everything you need to know about SEC-registered investment advisors.
What is an Investment Advisor?
An SEC-registered investment advisor is a person or firm that gives clients investment advice and can also give analyses of securities. The Investment Advisers Act of 1940 lays out the responsibilities of these people and firms. These advisors can be investment consultants, financial planners, general partners of hedge funds, and wealth managers.
Due to the certification, Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) have the obligation to provide proper investment advice and act in their client’s best interest.
Investment advisors assist clients with a variety of services, including but not limited to the following financial necessities:
Asset protection involves keeping your property safe in the event that you are involved in a lawsuit and you owe money. In this event, asset protection ensures that you will have assets that cannot be used to pay a debt.
Growth of Assets
Building your assets is the best way to make money. Payday shouldn’t be someone’s only cash flow. If you were to quit or lose your job, having growing assets will provide you with what you need to keep your plan on track.
Planning is another aspect of financial planning, one that can save you a good amount of money. Tax optimization is looking at a financial plan from a tax perspective in order to reach financial goals through tax-efficiency planning.
Hedging Your Portfolio
It involves making particular investments in order to protect yourself from losses from another investment. Hedging is like insurance. Hedging is done to make sure investors are still in good standing in the event of something bad happening. It can’t prevent anything bad from happening, but it can make sure the negative hit isn’t too bad.
Identifying risks and providing strategies to avoid them plays a key role in wealth management and financial planning. A risk management plan typically involves personal liability coverage, property and casualty coverage, disability insurance, and more. The best way to protect your wealth is being aware of what can come at any time and having a management plan before it happens. In the event that something does happen, with your plan in place, you will be able to get back on track without a hitch.
A registered advisor may sound like a financial planner. In some ways, they are. Many financial planners are investment advisors. But not all advisors are financial planners. Before choosing an advisor or planner, make sure to know what kind of services you are in need of. You may not be able to get everything you need from certain financial planners. Luckily, Alpen Partners can help you with a wide array of financial planning and investment advising.
