    Why Use a Full-Service Brokerage?
    With the Internet where you can find hundreds of discount brokers and independent financial advisors, why would anyone need a full-service brokerage? The fact is, for many people, a full service brokerage is the very best option for handling their financial portfolios.

    In addition to the services listed above, a full service broker will work closely with you to understand your long-term and short-term goals such as buying a home or vacation home, putting children through college, leaving an estate for your heirs, or being able to travel extensively in retirement. Even though most investors know something, or even a substantial amount about investing, they often lack the tools, education, training, time, and most of all, experience to avoid the pitfalls or take advantage of great investment opportunities on a long-term basis. A full-service broker puts years of knowledge to work for you. Plus, full-service brokers are in a position to be aware of opportunities or dangers far earlier than individual investors because they are engrossed in the markets on a daily basis.

    Perhaps the strongest reason to utilize a full-service broker is to protect you from bad habits and human nature. Studies have shown that people are inherently risk averse. When investing their own money, they are inclined to buy high when they see the pack rush in, and sell low when the crowd is racing for the door. A full-service broker can calm and guide investors to avoid selling at market bottoms, chasing every cocktail party tip, or buying during speculative bubbles.
