Are Wealth Managers Different from Financial Advisors?

Few financial advisors offer the kind of comprehensive financial planning offered by wealth managers to clients with complex financial needs, David Kanani, president of Kanani Advisory Group, recently argued in an opinion piece. For starters, most advisors can offer a variety of generally available investment products but only a wealth management team can connect clients to a broader array of options. And where wealth management really stands out from “mere” financial advice is “advanced planning.” Wealth managers can provide clients with wealth enhancement strategies to address liquidity and cash-flow issues and minimize taxes, as well as set up an efficient transfer of wealth to the next generation, according to Kanani. Do you agree with Kanani’s delineation? Tell us why or why not in the comments section below.
