Although the term “advice” is used extensively within the financial industry, in the Wealth Management industry it is important to distinguish between what is considered “Investment Advice” versus mere “Guidance”. Investment advice is a personal recommendation of what a registered advisor thinks a client should do when weighing up their investment options, whereas investment guidance is more general information about financial products. It is essential to understand the specific regulatory requirements that apply to investment advice and specifically those introduced through MiFID II, including the client suitability and appropriateness tests.

Understand the key differences between Investment Advice and Investment Guidance
