Comment of the Week goes to....

by |

Planners are a wonderfully opinionated bunch and at Wealth Professional, we love nothing more than a bit of healthy discussion - which is why, every Friday from now on, we're going to be singling out our favourite bit of insight and crowning it with the lofty title, 'Comment of the Week'.

This week's winning two cents' worth comes from reader 'Sue Laing' and relates to Tuesday's article with FPA Future2 Community Service Best Practice award winner, Mark O'Leary. In the original article, O'Leary argues that there is not enough focus on the insurance aspect of advisers' work. Here's what Sue Laing had to say:

"There is lots of other positive news that should be coming from our industry regarding all the claims that thankfully some clients did make as they did get the right advice. It's high time the insurers got together to publicise this. Until they do the underinsurance will remain, as advisers themselves do more with investments than with insurance. Surely part of the reason for that is that the institutions don't do enough to support advisers in the insurance area! How many PD days for institutionally-owned dealerships have proper, in-depth, balanced proportions of insurance content??"

Thanks to everyone who contributed comments over the last seven days and keep an eye out next Friday to see if you're the author of Wealth Professional's next top 'Comment of the Week'!
