Advisory vs. Brokerage: Which One is Right for You?

At VyStar Investment Services, we offer two primary relationship or account types: Advisory and Brokerage.  Based on your goals & objectives, one account type may be better suited for your needs. 

A Brokerage relationship is often referred to as a transaction-based relationship.  In most cases, we provide recommendations to you on specific investments, but you make the final investment decisions for your account. We also have a program available through a limited number of financial institutions in which you make investment decisions on your own without any recommendations from us.

Brokerage accounts are often better suited for do-it-yourselfers who do not feel a need for the ongoing advice & guidance, or for those who have a buy-and-hold strategy and do not foresee themselves trading on a regular basis.  In addition, for investors who are just staring out or have smaller balances, this relationship may be the most cost-effective for you vs an advisory relationship. 

In an Advisory Relationship, the client’s fees are based on the funds being managed, sometimes called a wrap-fee or asset-based fee.  We’ll typically monitor accounts, and specific investments within accounts, on an ongoing basis to align with your investment goals. 

Advisory relationships are great for investors with more complex holdings, who trade frequently or need frequent rebalancing.  For investors who want to take advantage of financial planning services, the advisory relationship may be best suited – allowing their financial professional to act as their fiduciary and for the relationship to extend beyond the transaction.  The client and their financial professional can take a deeper dive into their planning needs with estate & legacy planning, life and long-term care planning, succession planning for businesses, all included in the asset-based fee.

There are pros and cons to each choice, and the best advice is to find a trusted advisor to work with who is putting you at the center of their decisions. 

No matter where you are in your financial journey, we have an appropriate, cost-effective solution to meet your needs.
