Fund Managers Vs Stockbrokers: Which Is Better?

buying shares on your own through your stockbroker and investing in fund managers (for example aims asset management company ltd) which is better? I just went to aims website and saw a 60:40 sharing ratio on returns which the marketers never mentioned to us when they were telling us to invest. someone in the house should enlighten me please. Is it worth going ahead because i already have a stockbroker?

Well, it all depend on your motive for investment, some prefer to monitor their investments themselves while some don't even have time or can not stand the mind of ups and downs movement of shares on the floor of the Stock Exchange.

Asset Managers are there to take risks for you, they manage your fund with a promise of an agreed returns or profit within a specified period.so u don't have to bother your brain about anything except for return on investment (R O I) for the agreed period.

Stock Brokers on the other hand,are there to buy and sell shares/stocks for you whether discretionary or non discretionary. Some investors prefer to watch their money grow in their own very eyes, receiving dividends at intervals and monitor their investment themselves.They are the risk takers.

Some investors even prefer to engage the service of CONSULTANTS who analyze and decide for them. Many brokers also engage in fund management Because its the same financial market where the fund managers and brokers patronize.

Buying stocks by yourself through your stockbroker is the best because all the

profit that comes out of it goes to your pocket and you only get to pay those

meager commissions that is not even up to 3% of the total buy or sell.

Nigeria's fund managers have a specified percentage for which whatever you

deposit with them increases, for example, ARM Discovery fund increases your

deposit with them by only 22.54% annually. But a research recently conducted

revealedthat the Nigerian stock market appreciates on an average of close to

100% annually.

You can see that these fund managers are eating fat on your investment.

If you invest yourself, you will bear all the risk your self and eat all the gain

but if you don't know how to do it yourself, you should get hooked to a reliable

stock analyst that will always tell you what to buy, hold and sell at anytime and so

even your stockbroker will not have a say in your investment decisions, he will only

be executing your mandates.

But if you must invest with fund managers, I will strongly recommend IBTC fund managers

to you because their annual returns is the highest in the country and they were awarded

for that. Just enquire about their Equity fund and Ethical fund.
