The power of advised investing

In 2015 we commissioned a survey on the importance of using a financial adviser in long-term planning for retirement. The resulting Redefining Retirement report showed that people who set themselves a target and saw an adviser regularly had a 53% increase in retirement income.

In fact, 90% of people who see a financial adviser on a regular basis feel the advice has benefited them.

We believe that the best way for you to achieve your goals is by establishing a long-term relationship between you, your financial adviser and Old Mutual Wealth. Working together, we can each play a role in helping you to achieve prosperity.

Here’s how it works:


To get the best results, it’s important to give your financial adviser as much information as possible. The more detail they have, the better they will be equipped to recommend a solution that’s right for you.

Once your adviser makes a recommendation, you should make sure you fully understand what you’re entering into. Read everything you are given and, if there’s anything you’re unsure about, ask your adviser the question. It’s what they’re there for.

Your financial adviser

Your financial adviser is there to build a long-term financial planning relationship with you. They will begin by having a detailed discussion with you about your current circumstances, what you want to achieve and your attitude to taking risks in return for potential rewards. They will then be able to recommend solutions that accurately match those criteria.

Once you’ve agreed a course of action with them and they’ve set up your product or portfolio, they can monitor its performance over time, giving you regular updates and recommending changes as and when necessary.

All financial advisers are qualified and regulated, to ensure the highest standards of professionalism.
