A recent independent research study looking into retirement from the perspectives of over 1,500 older Australians found that finances are at the fulcrum of their happiness and well-being. But it’s complicated. There is a paradox in that while the absence of financial stress is a major driver of well-being, increasing wealth is not. And, the study found that financial advisers are the keystone to retirees’ well-being: relieving retirees of their short-term stressors; providing retirees with a sense of control in their lives; providing confidence that they can deal with the unexpected; enabling retirees to nurture relationships; and, helping retirees live consistent with their values.
