What type of investor are you?

What type of investor are you infographic

Are you comfortable making investment decisions?

  • Absolutely, I enjoy DIY investing
  • Yes, if I have the right guidance
  • Not really (or don't have time)


Do you want investment and portfolio advice?

  • No, I'd rather do my own research and analysis to take my own approach
  • Yes, I value advice and recommendations.


Do you want to be involved in the details of managing your portfolio?

  • Yes, as long as I can get professional advice from someone who understands my needs and situation
  • No. It's worth my time to have a professional advise me and invest on my behalf


Would you use digital tools and advice to oversee your portfolio and reduce costs?

  • Yes, I like the efficiency of investing online, but still have access to support when needed
  • No thanks. I want one-on-one advice to set up and monitor my portfolio, and a dedicated advisor who knows me
