Value of an Adviser Report 2022 – out now

1 min 19 sec read

As we head towards the end of the year, it would not be an overstatement to say that 2022 has been a year rocked by market volatility. Supply chain issues, inflation, rising interest rates and geopolitical conflicts all contributed to prolonged instability, putting pressure on super investment strategies.

In such volatile and changing times, financial advisers can play an important role in your financial wellbeing and peace of mind. Just how this happens is the central theme of Russell Investments’ latest Value of an Adviser Report.

Released annually, the Report contains a simple and handy formula drawn from five key elements, each of which represents a valuable service that a financial adviser can provide.

  1. Behavioural coaching – an adviser can help you to stay objective and disciplined rather than let emotions influence your reaction to market volatility  
  2. Appropriate asset allocation – how your money is invested has a huge impact on whether you will achieve your retirement income goals  
  3. Choices and trade-offs – with time, your circumstances and priorities can change, and an adviser is there to understand your needs and help guide you through the key events in your life 
  4. Professional expertise – an adviser brings a unique combination of technical skills and emotional expertise, preparing you for life’s ups and downs  
  5. Tax-savvy planning and investing – an adviser can provide expertise in managing and optimising investment tax, impacting the value of your assets and investment returns. 

It’s quite a substantial list of services, wouldn’t you agree? That’s as it should be, because financial planning is a complex and specialised experience, personalised at an individual level and focused on the long term. What’s more, it helps to know what you’re getting for the price you pay.
