If you want to make your own investment decisions and simply use our services to execute your instructions, this is known as “execution only”.
You will not receive any investment advice from us; for example whether we feel a fund or share is a good buy, or if it is suitable for you. The choice of investment and whether to buy, sell or hold is yours alone, and you will be responsible for monitoring and assessing the suitability of your investments to ensure they continue to meet your investment goals and the time horizon for which you wish to invest.
“I knew exactly what I wanted and needed an international expert to buy it for me as it was in a different currency and on a different market from usual. AES took care of everything – fast and hassle free.”
James Reeves, client of AES International
It is important to clarify the difference between this service and financial advice, where our qualified professionals will spend time with you, discuss your current financial circumstances, tolerance for risk, investment horizon and investment objectives and make a personal recommendation, which is why there is an up-front fee based charge for this service.
You should be sure that execution only investing is the right choice for you before beginning, as investing is full of challenges for the inexperienced, and all investment comes with risk. If you are unsure as to the suitability of any investment, you should discuss it with a professional first, as it may be that advice represents good value.
When undertaking an execution only investment, you will not benefit from some of the regulatory protection that is provided when advice is given.
