Should I see a Financial Adviser?
Faced with a lot of uncertainty, many people aren’t sure if seeing a Financial Adviser is the right thing or not. In today’s article the goal is to help you to understand when and why you would see a Financial Adviser.
To understand this, let’s start with what happens if you don’t see a Financial Adviser.
Firstly here’s some facts. If you don’t see your Accountant to lodge your tax return, then the ATO will come after you, and you may even go to jail. If you don’t see your mechanic to service your car, then eventually your car will stop working. If you don’t see your doctor to investigate the strange spot on your skin, then you may find out too late that it’s skin cancer and you could, if it’s left untreated, end up dieing.
But if you don’t see your Pinancial planner, then basically nothing will happen. The sky won’t fall in, no one will be coming after you, and it won’t affect your health.
So why might you want to see a Financial Adviser?
Here’s our thoughts on why you might want to see a Financial Adviser.
- If you’re not happy with your current financial situation, or think you could be doing more with the money you earn, then a Financial Adviser can help you improve your financial position
- If there are certain things you would like to do in your life that you are not currently doing, then an adviser can help show you what you need to do, to give you the best chance of achieving everything you want
- If you don’t really know what you should or shouldn’t be doing with your money, or are uncertain whether you should make the big financial decisions we all face in life or not, then an adviser can help you understand what the financial possibilities are, what options you have, and which option is going to be the best one for your particular situation
- It’s much easier to make a large financial decisions if you understand what the long term implications are, and if there are any trade-offs. A Financial Adviser will help you to understand these important considerations
