A significant percentage of the population between the ages of 18 and 34 face an overwhelming challenge: accessing sound financial advice. Despite their financial concerns, many find it difficult to access professional protection guidance.
A recent survey found that, among 18–34-year-olds, four in five (81%) believe that getting financial advice is important. However, 51% of young adults were not sure where they should start looking. Within this group, 32% were unable to afford premiums and 27% had a perceived lack of need for the products.
Importance of protection
When it comes to the importance of insurance, you cannot afford to underestimate its significance. Unexpected events like accidents, illnesses, or job loss can have devastating financial consequences without proper coverage in place. Seeking guidance from a qualified protection adviser can help you navigate complex financial landscapes. By taking proactive steps to access professional advice, you can lay a solid foundation for a financially secure future.
Many young adults tend to underestimate the significance of insurance in their lives. It’s common to think that insurance is an unnecessary expense. However, life is unpredictable, and unexpected events can impact the ability to earn in the future, which is why speaking to a protection adviser becomes even more essential.
