Financial advice makes a difference It pays to seek advice from a qualified professional. So while many people are aware that they need professional advice, it’s often hard to know where to start. The quest isn’t simply to find a planner; but to find one you can trust. Getting the right advice can make a huge difference, especially when it comes to your financial affairs. In fact, research by the Financial Services Council shows that people who received advice were almost $100,000 better off at retirement*. *Source: Financial Services Council 2011. The research shows that a 30 year old would save an additional $91,000, a 45 year old would save an additional $80,000 and a 60 year old would save $29,000 more than those without a financial adviser. Plan for the unexpected Marriage, divorce, first job, new job, redundancy, first home, children, school fees, death of a loved one, illness, injury, retirement – some are expected, some are unexpected, but all are a part of life and just a few of the times when financial planning advice can make a difference. Any change in your personal circumstances can have an impact on your financial future. So, if your circumstances change, having a plan in place can provide reassurance and peace of mind at a difficult time.
