How a financial adviser can help you avoid financial hardship?

It's a sad and unfortunate reality that even in a country a wealthy as Australia, poverty exists. According to statistics that number is increasing, and alarmingly, it's often older women who are the most vulnerable.

We know that no one sets out with an intention to live in poverty. While we can't stop some of life's more unpleasant experiences, such as divorce, unemployment, or illness, we can help you stack the odds against financial hardship, in your favour.

How? With good planning, a financial adviser can be your biggest ally against you ending up a statistic of poverty and its ramifications. A good financial planner must be good with numbers, a great financial planner must be great with numbers and people!

When it comes to poverty, preventing it from happening in the first place is best for everyone. The good news is that, everyone can take at least some precaution against life's uncertainties. We can help you look after your financial health so you can prevent financial hardship. When you take care of your financial health, your finances will help take care of you. Having insurance and good financial planning are the steps that can get you there.

Do financial advisers sell insurance?

At Genki Finance the answer is yes. Adviser Alison Kaigan is qualified to provide advice relating to personal insurance. Along with insurance protection, Alison can help you establish and plan achievable financial goals.

You don't need to be 'wealthy' to contact a financial planner. If you are professionally employed earning a wage, salary, or have your own business, we have financial vehicles to fit your needs. If you live in Canberra or Sydney we can assist you with a range of financial services tailored to fit your lifestyle, your financial goals, and your unique circumstances.
