what is


Question by  jlaird (190)

What is the difference between advisor and adviser?

The -or and -er ending -- is there a meaningful difference? Even if it's insignificant, what's the reason?


Answer by  MamaDolce (19)

There is no difference. Both are acceptable. I would spell it advisor for the longest time because adviser looked incorrect. I have seen both used, and I looked it up in the dictionary. Either is acceptable. I don't know the reason that both are acceptable. It's just a matter of preference.

Financial Advisers (with an ā€œeā€) is the generic term used by Broker Dealers to describe their sales people. Registered Investment Advisors (with an ā€œoā€) are actually licensed to give advice.

I would use whatever spelling the person, or institution, offering the advice uses.

Adviser is the correct spelling which means you ask some one to do which you think is good from your view. Advisor has no meaning as such and it is mispelt. It can be also British English or some times American English. On the whole adviser is commonly used by everyone.
