Full-Service Broker

A type of stockbroker who provides more than stock quotes and order execution, including (and not limited to) portfolio planning and management, investment ideas, and researching specific investments.

A broker who provides clients an all-inclusive selection of services, such as investment advice on security selection and financial planning.

Additional Comments:

A full-service broker is a firm like Goldman Sachs or Smith Barney.

They’ll give you advice on what stocks to buy based on their own internal research. For this, you’ll pay a higher commission.

Firms like these will also help you with your financial planning, again all for a higher fee than the discount brokers charge. If you’re looking for a one-on-one relationship and more specific advice on what to buy and sell, a full-service firm may be right for you.
