Financial advisers, consultants and accountants – finding good ones

BiG Tips: Finding the best experts to get your money sorted, like financial advisers or accountants, means looking at their independence, fees and commission. Be sure that you’re getting independent advice and that their fees are reasonable, based on the returns they claim they can achieve. Cheapest doesn’t mean the best. Commissions they receive should become more transparent and more closely regulated after the Financial Services Royal Commission recommendations.

Comparison sites and testimonials can help, but beware of them.

These articles and sites will help you choose and compare financial advisers:
