Investment managers, also known as fund managers and asset managers, seek to make their clients’ money grow so that they can achieve their goals and aspirations, to help offer a more comfortable future. Investment advisers or brokers can help investors make appropriate choices as to which assets or funds to invest in.  Achieving an effectively managed portfolio of investments starts with your investment manager getting to know more about you. Without a very good understanding of your personal objectives, financial circumstances and attitude to taking risk it would be difficult to accurately match your needs with an appropriate portfolio of investments.  

Investment managers pay close attention to what could happen to the value of different investments in the case of changing market conditions. This aspect of investing is especially important when the portfolio represents a large portion of somebody’s overall wealth or the amount of time they can commit to being invested is short. Your investment manager is able to reduce risk when valuations look stretched and respond quickly to changing market conditions.
