What is the difference between an Investment Adviser and a Financial Planner such as you find at Fairfield Wealth

Both are regulated finance professionals that you find locally who offer financial advice, however there are some subtle and very key differences in their roles and responsibilities.

An investment adviser is a finance professional who helps clients with their investment decisions. To operate in Guernsey they are required to be regulated by the Guernsey Financial Services Commission (GFSC) and are required to act in their clients' best interests. Investment advisers may provide advice on individual securities, mutual funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), or other types of investments. They may also manage their clients' investment portfolios.

A financial planner is also a professional who provides comprehensive financial advice to clients. Financial planners may help clients with a range of financial goals, including retirement planning, estate planning, tax planning, insurance planning, and investment planning. They may also provide advice on budgeting, debt management, and other financial issues. Financial planners may hold various certifications, such as the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) or Chartered Financial Planner (APFS), and may work for financial planning firms, such as Fairfield, banks, or other financial institutions.

While investment advisers and financial planners may have some overlapping areas of expertise, their main focus and responsibilities are different. Investment advisers typically specialise in investment management and in Guernsey tend to advise only on their firms' own offerings, while financial planners take a more holistic approach to their clients' financial well-being and more often than not provide advice on the whole market.

In summary, the main difference between an investment adviser and a financial planner is that an investment adviser primarily focuses on providing advice on investment decisions, while a financial planner may provide advice on a wider range of financial matters. However, the exact scope of services offered by each professional can vary based on their qualifications, expertise, and the needs of their clients.
