Growing your super

What’s the point of Super Advice?

There’s a perception that only people close to retirement – or with a lot of money in the bank – need financial advice.

But whether you’re just starting out in your career, you’re winding down at work, or you’ve already set out on your retirement adventures, there’s never a bad time to seek advice.

The benefits of advice

The financial advice sector has received a bit of a bad rap over the last few years, but solid advice from a trusted professional can be invaluable.

A survey of over 2,500 Australians conducted by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) found consumers believe there are a broad range of benefits to receiving financial advice, including:

  • Optimising their finances
  • Achieving specific goals
  • Establishing themselves financially
  • Facilitating the transition to a new life stage
  • Providing a ‘reality check’
  • Managing anxiety
  • Feeling empowered and motivated
  • Improving financial knowledge and skills

Almost 80% of respondents agreed that financial advisers had expertise in financial matters that they didn’t have, and 73% of people agreed that financial advisers could introduce them to good ideas they might not have thought of on their own.

Why you should get advice about your super

While there’s a lot of information out there to help you learn the basics about super, it can be difficult to apply what you’ve learned to your own personal situation.

After all, the fine print will always tell you that the information you’re reading is general and has “been prepared without taking into account your personal objectives, financial situation, or needs”.

But super is one of the largest assets most Australians will have after the family home – so it makes sense to get help from someone whocan take into account your personal objectives and needs, and make sure you and your super are on the right track.
