The War on Stress 2019
Study: High Levels of Stress Impacting Financial Advisors and Investors Personally and Professionally
New research from the Financial Planning Association,
Janus Henderson Investors
explores the issue of stress among financial advisors and investors, its causes and what can be done. The study examined both financial advisor and investors’ top personal and professional stressors, and results indicate that while investors’ primary concerns center on how to maintain lifetime income that meets expenses, they’re not confident in their own financial knowledge, leading to financial insecurity and increased stress levels.
Key Findings from
The War on Stress
71% of financial advisors and 57% of investors are currently experiencing an increase in moderate to high levels of negative stress compared to 12 months prior.
Respondents cited the biggest impacts of stress include their mood (50% for investors and 61% for advisors), personal relationships (38% for investors and 56% for advisors) and health (38% for investors and 54% for advisors).
There is a significant connection between stress and feelings of financial insecurity. Among low-stress investors, 77% feel financially secure―a number that drops to only 39% among respondents who feel high stress.
Three-quarters of investors with a written financial plan say they feel somewhat or very financially secure, while only 51% of those without a written financial plan say the same.
