    An investment broker is a specialist in bonds, stocks, and Forex and conducts investment-related transactions on your behalf. They act as an intermediary between you and the investment world. Several investment options require a broker to negotiate your trades or buy and sell stocks and bonds. Investment brokers can be an individual or an organisation. They are paid with a commission for every service a broker offers.

    A broker may also offer advice to you regarding investment decisions. On the other hand, discount brokers execute trades on behalf of a client, but typically don't provide investment advice.

    Understanding Brokers

    Along with executing client orders, brokers also provide investors with research insights, investment plans, and market intelligence. It is also possible that brokers cross-sell other financial products and services offered by their brokerage firm.

    Some of these services can be access to a private client that provides customised solutions, especially to high-net-worth clients. Earlier, only wealthy people could afford to get brokerage services to access the stock market. With the advent of the internet, online broking has reached new heights and offers discounts on brokerage services making it available.

    Factors to consider before you invest

    When it comes to the real estate industry, a broker is a licensed real estate professional who takes the role of a seller of a property. When he is working for a seller, the roles and responsibilities include:

    1. Determine the propertys market value.
    2. Advertising the property for sale.
    3. Showing the property to prospective customers.
    4. Advising clients about offers.
    5. Conveying all offers to the seller for consideration.

    When it's time to choose a broker, keep the following points in mind:

    1. Match your investment style with the brokerage firm.
    2. Check the cost for the services.
    3. Use broker comparison sites to pick the best one.
