Rate and review your financial advisor with new website: adviserratings.com.au

By Rebeccah Elley ·

“How do I find competent and trustworthy financial advisers and rate them?” That’s the question posed by many Aussies, as choosing the right financial adviser can be a difficult decision.

To help solve this problem adviserratings.com.au has been launched by financial services expert Angus Woods, and consumer advocate Christopher Zinn, to provide more transparency in the planning industry.

The free website allows consumers to rate and review more than 18,000 registered financial planners who have a profile that showcases their qualifications, memberships of industry bodies, compliance and experience. Customers can also share their experiences in a dedicated client forum.

Zinn said too many consumers are paying the price of not having an expert and trustworthy adviser in making decisions about their savings and investments. “We hope to help both consumers and advisers by getting consumers more engaged and asking smarter questions.”

“Adviser Ratings is all about trying to correct even slightly the massive imbalance of power and information between the planning industry and consumers. We aim to make financial advice more accessible and affordable, as well as more accountable, by fostering integrity, trust and transparency in planners,” he said.
