Call it youth. We don’t think we need help with much. And according to a few articles I’ve come across recently, young people on the whole generally don’t perceive a need for professional financial advice.
Although age is just a number, let’s assume for purposes of seeking financial advice that being ‘young’ ranges from the early 20’s to mid-40’s. And as someone who would be considered a young client, I completely understand the hesitation. The interaction that many have up until they accumulate some wealth is typically a lack of service since you are not a big account, or being sold a product like home owners insurance. We may even have friends or acquaintances starting careers in the financial world who we can’t imagine paying for advice from.
