The Value of Advice:
It is often difficult to ascertain the advice value, provided by financial advisers. It’s difficult because much of the value we provide to clients, or more particularly, the value client’s state they get from their relationship with us, is not easily quantifiable.
However, Russell Investments has recently released their “2019 Value of an Adviser Report” where they have tried to quantify the value of our advice. In addition, they have identified areas where value is provided but the value in these areas was difficult to quantify.
Most of the value that they can quantify are for things advisers do every day, often without clients being aware. These include:

All of these things have value, but that value is difficult to quantify in dollar terms, but knowing these strategies are taken care of, can help you sleep at night. What value do we place on peace of mind?
