You are the financial advisor – what do you recommend?
Ava is an independent woman who wants to take care of her own finances. She is a busy, qualified solicitor and she doesnt know much about the stock market. She doesnt have or want to put a lot of time into it. She is quite up to date on whats going on in the world, so she is confident that she would know some reasonably good sectors and economies to invest her money in. She wants to keep her costs as low as possible and has a lump sum of 10,000 to invest
Scott is financially comfortable. He is a civil servant, but also has a small home business. He understands risk and is willing to spend time nurturing his investments. He enjoys the stock market, reads about it regularly and has done two courses in it. He has a time tested, easy to follow strategy. He doesnt want to pay any management fees and has 1000 per quarter to invest.
Ciara is a teacher and loves property! Although she understands and is successful renting and selling houses, she wants to diversify into the stock market in a small way. She doesnt want to spend any time at it and knows little about it. She doesnt mind paying fees, just as long as she gets some decent exposure to the market. She wants the choice to be narrowed down, so its easy as opposed to most profitable. Much of her disposable income is tied up in mortgages. She has 200 per month to invest.
