My development from student to your honorary consultant in Germany
Of course, I didn’t start out as a fee-based consultant in Leipzig, but had to go my not always easy way first. In 2006, I began my studies of economics with a focus on “banking and insurance management” in Leipzig. Originally I had the dream to become an investment banker. The financial crisis in 2008 put an end to this dream, because that would never have fulfilled me. I wanted to understand economics and financial markets and at the same time use this knowledge and my skills to help people improve their lives.
In 2009, as a young business student, I came to the financial services industry highly motivated. First, I gained exciting insights as an executive assistant in a large distribution company, then I wanted to help people grow into consulting practice myself.
Unfortunately, most of the scientific theories of capital investment from my studies were not taken very seriously in practice. Professors also viewed structural sales rather disparagingly, and I myself had increasing doubts about the “system”.
As a result, I drew the first conclusions and became a freelance insurance and financial broker. From now on, I was freer, could conclude brokerage contracts with my clients and no longer had to apply the rules of a distribution system.
But even in this world, product schukungenb were mostly “stories” schooled and looked at past performance. The approaches and the opinions of the trade press and fund managers were manfold and ambiguous. Regardless, my investors made only mediocre gains despite good markets – the reason: We had all underestimated the (sometimes hidden) costs of the investment products!
None of my clients have ever lost money, but I want to make sure my clients don’t have any nasty surprises and can later enjoy the fruits of good independent financial life planning and investment strategies that work. The above processes did not meet my standards. In 2017, I had enough and decided to join an elite group of financial advisors.
A strict separation of advice and products thanks to state “seal of independence” as a partner of Honorarfinanz AG is exactly what makes the difference and how advice on the side of the customer is possible.
