In a recent survey conducted by Financial Advice New Zealand, it was proven that Kiwi’s who receive professional financial advice exhibit better financial behaviours than those that don’t.
This report surveyed 2,000 Kiwis from around the country and asked questions around financial plans, what financial products they used, and how often they reviewed these products. This takes into account any financial advice such as mortgage advice, KiwiSaver advice, and insurance advice.
Kiwis who used a mortgage advisor better understood the value of reviewing and making changes to their mortgage. This includes things like varying the amount of repayments, changing from fixed or floating rates, or offsetting savings accounts.
So let's look at some stats....
90% of those believe that reviewing and making changes will save them money in the long term.
86% of those surveyed who use a mortgage advisor (vs 68% of those that don’t) annually review their loan
76% who use a mortgage advisor (vs 59% of those that don’t), review the loan structure when a fixed-term mortgage ends.
