Calling all New Zealand financial advisers
AIA NZ is sponsoring a second independent research project to better understand the mental health and wellbeing of financial advisers in New Zealand and is calling on advisers to take part in the survey.
The 2023 New Zealand Adviser Wellbeing Research follows the first-of-its-kind New Zealand study carried out in 2021. It aims to understand the current state of mental health of New Zealand financial advisers, explore the habits and attitudes of those advisers who are experiencing positive mental wellbeing, and understand the mindsets and behaviours needed to evolve and manage significant market disruptions.
Sharron Botica, AIA NZ Chief Partnership Distribution Officer, says “We are pleased to be delivering this important research again in 2023. The 2021 results provided valuable insight into the key challenges experienced by financial advisers and has subsequently informed our approach to how we engage with them since.”
“The financial services sector continues to see significant change in the operating and regulatory landscape, and with recent extreme weather events and the rising cost of living, financial advisers are increasingly supporting distressed customers. We and our industry peers have been working steadily with advisers to help them through these challenges, but there’s no doubt the combination of these conditions have proved especially demanding for financial advisers.”
AIA NZ will be working again with Sydney-based researchers Dr Adam Fraser, founder of The e-lab, and Dr John Molineux from Deakin University, who specialise in producing reports of this nature.
