What is a financial adviser?
Being a financial adviser is all about guiding people towards a secure financial future, and providing peace of mind. They help individuals and businesses to take control of their financial wellbeing, and build long-lasting client relationships, creating bespoke plans to help their clients realise and achieve their aspirations.
If you enjoy building relationships and talking to people, are looking for a rewarding career where you can help others, and are interested in the financial sector, advising could be the career for you.
