Should I see a Financial Advisor?
Money worries. Everyone has them in some shape or form at different times in their lives, and according to the Australian Government online resource, Health Direct, “money worries are one of the main sources of stress in Australia, and can lead to relationship problems, depression or anxiety”.
As industry experts, we know that in many instances seeking professional financial advice from a trusted financial advisor can lower levels of financial stress. Decreasing your worry about the future.
We’re also aware that there are many people in the community wondering, ‘what does a financial advisor actually do?’ How do I know if I should see one, and if it will be ‘worth’ the investment?
That’s why the team at Hub Advisory Group has put together a few easy-to-follow details on how you might value from making an appointment with a financial advisor and what to expect.
Financial advisors are qualified professionals that specialise in understanding your personal needs and values, with the ability to then apply these to constructing a personalised financial plan for your future.
The most important part of this process is the discovery discussion which identifies your values and needs. In addition to this, your financial advisor will also require detailed and accurate information from you to ensure that they understand your needs and are providing the best advice possible. This information will include:
PERSONAL SITUATION & ASSETS
INCOME (including salary, any investments and government benefits) DEBT (including mortgages, any loans or credit cards)
They may also require details of your insurance policies, estate plans and information from your accountant.
