Why seek financial advice?

A new publication by Aegon dropped into my inbox this week. It's designed to encourage consumers to take financial advice. With access to so much information on-line you might wonder how there is still a market for face to face advice, but as the sign in some GP practices points out; "Don't confuse your Google search with my medical degree!", the same applies.

The booklet looks at the main reasons people seek advice. It also explores ways in which financial planners can support you and the kind of problems they can help you overcome at different life stages.

The part I enjoyed reading most was the myth busting section and the surprising statistic, (well not surprising to me I suppose) that 9 out of 10 consumers in their survey rated the advice they recieved as good or very good.

You can read the booklet on the Aegon website yourself.
