With only around 20% of Australians thinking it’s worthwhile seeking professional financial advice, it begs the question – ‘what’s in it for me?’ ‘Why would I see a financial adviser?’
And I can give you 6 pretty good answers to that question!
Firstly, seeing an adviser can help you set and achieve personal financial goals. Sure, you can do that on your own… but do you? Most of us fare much better when we share our goals and feel accountable to someone for achieving them. But then, some never think to set financial goals or have a clue about achieving them. This is where an adviser can provide much value.
Secondly, we can help you make the most of your money. Chances are, if your like most you live first and save last… if there’s anything left over. Advisers can assist with salary packaging, planning, tax minimisation and ensuring you get paid and get to save.
We also know a bit about Centrelink, and have helped some who didn’t even know that they were entitled to the Pension or an Allowance to be able to claim what they’re entitled to.
One of my favourites tho is assisting you to feel more in control of your financial situation. Knowing that you’ve got a plan, someone to keep you on track and that each year you can see that you’re getting ahead, is priceless!
We all make mistakes, it’s a part of living and learning. But some of them can be extremely expensive. Being able to run business, investment and financial deals past an expert who knows their numbers can potentially save hundreds or even thousands of dollars in expensive mistakes!
And finally, we know all about protection. Having a brilliant financial plan is no good if all that you’ve already worked so hard for isn’t protected. Ensuring that your own life and the wellbeing of your loved ones is taken care of means real peace of mind.
