The Real Value of Financial Advice: How can a Financial Planner Help you?

The Real Value of Financial Advice: How can a Financial Planner Help you?

For those planning to seek financial advice now or in the future, the real question on their mind is “How can a financial adviser help me?”.

With the rising cost of living, inflation and interest rates playing on many of our minds, many Australians aren’t enjoying as much financial freedom as they may have had previously.

Whether your mortgage repayments have increased, your weekly grocery shop has skyrocketed or your investments aren’t providing the returns they used to, managing your money is far from easy.

Managing your money takes time and knowledge which not everybody can do effortlessly. But having control over your money and making the right financial decisions generally leads to a better, more peaceful lifestyle and better health.

This is where the true value of financial advice comes into play, and why working with a financial adviser is something all Australians need to consider.

Good Financial Advice Can Be Life-Changing

Good financial advice is designed to help you achieve your financial goals – whatever they may be. The benefits of financial advice can be broken down into two areas:

  1. Tangible
  2. Intangible

Understandably, those receiving financial advice expect to be financially better off because of the advice. The good news is this is the case according to CPA’s research:

Over 80% of individuals, couples and families who have received advice say they enjoy financial security and have greater control over their financial situation.

Financial improvement and investment performance are examples of the tangible benefits of good financial planning.

Unsurprisingly, many investors want to know that their investments are performing well, especially in times of market volatility.

Other examples of tangible benefits financial advisers deliver include:

  • Tax savings from effective tax management
  • Cheaper insurance premiums that protect your family
  • Increased and consistent investment returns through personal wealth management

Most of the time, the tangible dollar savings you receive will far outweigh the cost of receiving financial advice. However, this is not always the case but for many people, good advice is not always about the dollars saved but the emotional and intangible benefits it provides.

Intangible benefits of financial advice include:

  • Improved mental health
  • Peace of mind (the ‘sleep at night’ factor)
  • Improved physical health
  • Less stress
  • Improved family life and work satisfaction

Overall, most clients will gain comfort having direction or a plan in place towards what is important to them in life that will fulfill their life of prosperity. 

Additionally, many people who receive advice see it as an investment not only for their money but for their confidence and to better understand their finances. Advised clients say they feel more comfortable making their own financial and investment decisions in the future.

Good financial advice takes into account both the tangible and intangible possibilities. But the true value of advice is completely unique to everyone and will depend on the things that create your own personal happiness.
