New Potential Clients and How to Assist Them

Financial planners, lawyers and accountants all have something in common – they help clients with their finances and are in a unique position to create awareness around the growing trend of financial senior abuse as a preventative step.

Having knowledge around this new client potential is key, and industry feedback is presented in our presentations as we analyse various situations presented case studies and real stories.

This disturbing trend is set to continue growing until changes in our system are introduced, and this may take time. In a Report launched recently by the Australian Law Reform Commission, two recommendations were more education for professionals and community awareness campaigns.

Obviously this disturbing trend is set to continue growing until changes in our systems are introduced, and this process may take time. Actively engaging with clients is just as prudent, as is expecting an increase in new potential clients to assist.

Enhancing learning and ensuring you’re well informed to assist in a professional, competent and proper way, will be key and become increasingly important, and will no doubt build on reputation as a result.

Our presentations are not only informative around the issue, they offer insight into situations with a workshop format towards the end that encourages questions and learning benefits with a focus on improving outcomes and ultimately client satisfaction, and retention of those values clients along with their finances.
