This is our sixth annual report of The Financial Advisor Market, again showing the size and nature of the sector but with added details and format this year.
For example we can see from the market details within the new study fees for Retail Investments have ramped up steeply as investment activity flourishes, but we may wish to temper this with concerns too as many equity markets are near all time highs. Mortgage business this last year has also ramped up and makes sense after the initial concerns in the more subdued 2016 Brexit Referendum year.
Even though advising staff have increased there is still a significant rise in revenue earned per adviser in 2017 demonstrating the ever present need for advice. This report should give clarity on the space you work within and what is happening, changing and quite possibly needs addressing.
