How do I find a good financial adviser?

2nd August, 2019

You are more likely to get financial advice that is in your best interests if you choose a genuine fee for service adviser. That is, someone who only gets paid on an hourly basis or a fixed fee for a piece of work and is therefore free from remuneration-based conflicts of interest which may lead to the sale of a product you don’t need or want (for example percentage fees on funds under management, insurance commissions or volume bonuses).

You may wish to use the ADF Financial Advice Referral Program [link to list] to find an adviser. The Program provides a list of advisers who have given undertakings to Defence that they only operate on a genuine fee for service basis to ADF members and their families (and the public in general).
