Once upon a time, financial service representatives were just “smiling and dialing” salespeople. Thankfully, this is no longer the case! Today’s financial service representatives are trusted professionals charged with looking after the “financial health” of their clients in a holistic fashion – not unlike the way that physicians look after all aspects of a person’s “physical health.” Under the circumstances it is not surprising to find today’s financial service representatives doing a lot more than just selling. Most are “adding value” on a wide variety of fronts, including: • Tax preparation and planning • Debt management and credit counselling • Asset preservation and decumulation strategies • Estate and legacy planning But in their efforts to look after the “financial health” of their clients, most financial service representatives have overlooked a critical element: consumer spending. Like it or not, how wisely or foolishly your clients spend their money will have an enormous impact on their overall financial health. This presentation will focus on the things you can do to help your clients become more “enlightened” consumers. Helping your clients make better consumer choices is a great way for you to: 1) add value; 2) stand apart from the crowd; and 3) improve everyone’s financial well-being. And doing good has its own rewards – the money that your clients save by being better consumers can, in turn, be used to fund the insurance and investment products that you sell. What goes around comes around ... and everybody wins!
