The investment advice offered by a financial advisor can be the difference between terrible losses and exceptional returns. 

However, hiring an experienced and trustworthy financial advisor,  based on their track record and legacy, is something people assume is only for the ultra-rich and elite. 

That is a popular myth. Retail investors don’t have to hire a financial advisor on their own. 

Yes, the services of a financial advisor do not come cheap but regular investors can access the same high-quality financial advice and investment options available to the ultra-rich using the Cube Wealth App.

Cube has partnered with expert financial advisors like Wealth First and the award-winning US, RIA Rick Holbrook who recommend handpicked investments for Cube users so that they can invest in top-performing assets, without breaking their bank on the advisory fee.

Disclaimer: The investment options and schemes listed in this blog are currently recommended by Cube's financial advisors and partners. To see the latest information download the Cube Wealth app.
