Reasons to become a financial adviser

Looking for a new career? Become a financial adviser

The UK needs professional financial advisers now more than ever, with an estimated need for 50,000* financial advisers. People need help to make the best choices, which means there are plenty of opportunities for advisers. The government is urging people to better manage their money and plan for their futures, plus changing regulations mean individuals can access more money earlier in their life.

Social and demographic changes are also contributing to a need for financial advice, with an ageing population, the changes in the housing market and differences in working patterns combing to make the decisions people need to make about their money more complex.
