Frequently Asked Questions

Direct stock investing is “directly” purchasing and selling listed shares of a company through a licensed stockbroker.

The main difference between mutual funds and direct stock investing is that mutual funds are pooled money from multiple investors and are managed by a professional fund manager, thus providing a well-diversified portfolio.

As for direct stock investing, the account holder has the freedom to choose when to buy and sell shares of his or her preferred stock. This allows the account holder to have full control of his or her investment portfolio but requires more research. Direct stock investing also carries higher risk if the individual has no basic knowledge about investing and has no proper risk management.

Direct stock investing is for clients who want to manage their own portfolios and be in control of which specific stocks they want to be invested in. Compared to managed funds, the client becomes the full-time manager for his or her portfolio responsible for executing buy and sell orders.
