When seeking professional advice makes sense

You may want to manage your money on your own, but there are times when it’s a mistake to go it alone.

When you’ve got a money challenge that needs to be solved, professional advice makes good sense.

When we face a problem with our home, car or even our health, we reach out for professional advice. And the same principle should apply when it comes to money matters.

Plenty of Australians tackle financial matters on their own. That may be fine when things are going well but it’s when the going gets tough that the real benefit of financial advice can shine through.

You see, new research from FinChoice found the majority of Australians believe they are great with their money. Yet 58% of people rate their financial knowledge as either average or poor.

It’s a conundrum that can make it difficult to handle life’s curve balls. But what many people don’t realise is that professional financial advice goes well beyond saving and investing.

Good advice is all about helping you get more from your money. It provides a roadmap for financial security so you can handle whatever life throws your way. It’s about living with less stress and more confidence that you can weather financial storms.

Prevention is worth a tonne of cure

When it comes to money matters, an ounce of prevention is often worth a tonne of cure, and while professional financial advice can help you find solutions to problems like unmanageable debt, it makes far more sense to avoid getting into financial difficulties in the first place. And that’s where financial advice is such a sensible investment.

Just how a financial adviser can help depends very much on your life stage. But whether it’s developing a strategy to give your children the best possible education or discovering how to make the most of your money in retirement, we can explain the options to help find what's right for you.
