The Value of Financial Advice

Making decisions about your financial future is important and managing your finances can be complicated. However, it’s been shown that those who seek advice regularly are much better off than those that don’t.

What are your goals in life? What is important for your future? You might want a great return on your investments, have peace of mind with a pension plan, protection for your income, future security for your family or may just want to avoid making costly mistakes with your money. Whatever stage you are at in life, there will be a plan suitable for you.

Standard Life recently conducted a survey and it showed that those who have used a Financial Broker:

  • Have nearly 3 times the savings and investments than those who don’t
  • Are more than twice as likely to have a pension
  • Are more financially protected as a result of holding more financial products
  • Feel more financially confident and also feel more confident about their financial future

Almost half of Irish adults have used a financial broker and it seems most of us tend to seek financial advice when we are over 35 and employed with an income of over €30,000. Those that have spoken to a financial advisor / broker are better protected and provided for having sought advice on products that meet their needs and financial circumstances.

The effect of advice on personal wealth is considerable, people who have consulted a financial broker have more investments, savings and more valuable pensions.
