There are benefits of sound financial advice despite most people not knowing who to trust, what’s involved or what to expect when they think about financial advice. Far too many Australians are taking a “she’ll be right” attitude. More than half of Australians are concerned they wont have enough to retire on and more than 60% expect to be fully or partially dependant on the age pension.

The earlier you start to save for the future, the better off you will be in the long term. Resolve to make a start this week and get your affairs under control.

Try setting a budget, set realistic goals, think long term and review at least annually. Mosts importantly, seek advice from professional financial planners.
