The Australian Securities & Investments Commission has released the findings of a survey on consumers’ attitudes toward the financial advice sector. It shows that there is a high level of distrust regarding the sector; amongst other things, about 50 per cent of respondents believe that financial advisers are more concerned about making themselves rich than helping clients, while almost 30 per cent prefer to obtain financial advice from family members, friends or colleagues. The ASIC report is based on interviews with almost 2,500 investors.
