In the general sense, the stock advisor basically provides the buy call once the research is done on the specific stock. Going ahead all the other stuff like buying the stock and other tracks are up to you in the advisory services. The scenario is common in all other investment advisory services except for PMS. The stock advisor also provides the investment rationale for the stock tip provided definitely but in some cases, it may be possible that you may miss the recommendation and buy at some other point this can directly reduce the returns you generate.

Another key reason behind providing PMS is, the majority of the investors who opt for advisory services are busy professionals that are IT professionals, Businessman etc, who crazily busy in their daytime and are unable to keep an eye on the markets constantly.

However every coin has two sides, PMS is regulated and governed by SEBI and therefore have some rigid conditions to avail it. The basic and most important thing to note about the PMS is Capital requirement. As per SEBI guidelines, one needs to have a portfolio or investment capacity of minimum 5 lakhs to avail the PMS. But many of the advisors and brokers have the entry barrier of Rs.25 lakh for PMS. In short, you need to be HNI to avail PMS. Moreover, high brokerage and other PMS charges are some other hurdles you will face going ahead.
