Financial planning isn’t just for millionaires!
When most people think about getting ‘Financial Advice’ they think that it’s for people with lots of money to invest and protect.
In fact a recent report* has found that for people with less than £50,000 to invest, there is a lack of accessible financial services. A recent survey** also found that 69% of financial advisers had turned away business in the last 12 months, with the most common reason being that people couldn’t afford it! Isn’t that ironic?!
Thankfully our faithful friend ‘technology’ has brought about a new wave of financial advice alternatives for those of us who aren’t bathing in £50 notes on a regular basis! The whizzy technical term for this digital newbie is ‘Robo-Advice’.
This doesn’t mean you get to meet with a robot, although that would be really awesome! It simply means that you can access a simpler and cheaper route to invest your money. It basically asks you some simple questions and puts you into a suitable basket of investments, depending on how much risk you are willing to take. It then manages this basket of assets for you, so you don’t have to.
So the robo-advice covers the investment part… but what about other areas of financial planning? Most people could do with reviewing other important areas of their finances such as their pension, protection, will or mortgage on a regular basis!
