2. Volatile markets: When markets turn volatile and you need to monitor your investments closely, you will have to make ‘buy’, ‘hold’, ‘sell’ decisions. Advice from an expert, who has the experience and knowledge, will help you make this choice between buy, sell and hold.
3. Maintaining asset allocation: One should keep a close watch on their investment portfolio and make adjustments to keep your asset allocation in check with your risk profile and goals. Advice from an expert can help you keep your asset allocation in check.
