19 Sep Do I Need a Financial Planner?
If you have been asking yourself the question ‘do I need a financial planner’? then read on. A financial planner can be helpful no matter what stage of life you are at. Whether you are a high earner looking to grow your wealth through smarter investments, a couple about to start a family, approaching retirement or already retired, there is much value to add from engaging a financial planner.
A recent survey from NetWealth.com.au revealed people who use a financial planner are twice as likely to have their finances allow them the things they want to do and enjoy life. This is a very compelling statistic – we all want to have enough wealth to enjoy a great lifestyle and have holidays too. So, are financial planners worth it? In a word, yes. The study also found that the most important benefits reported from using a financial planner include:
– improved financial outcomes
– growth of savings
– defining and achieving financial goals
– saving time
Many people engage with a financial planner if their current level of wealth is not increasing. With rising costs and increasing lifespans, people want to know their money will last as long as they do. This is a valid concern and as important as the plan is knowing whether you are on track to achieve it. Top financial planners will ensure you have the peace of mind of actually knowing you are on track.

When is a financial planner not suitable?
A financial planner is not the right person to engage if you are on an incredibly tight budget with little money to invest. Also, if you have a lot of consumer debt you should prioritise paying this off before engaging a financial planner.
