Most want retirement financial advice over other luxuries, says survey
SIFMA urges retirement savings, investing and planning
Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA)
3 Oct 2007 United States Investment - General, Countries - US, Advisers
According to a survey of 1,001 respondents last month commissioned by the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA), a majority of adults (53%) would choose to receive retirement financial advice over that of a personal trainer, interior designer or fashion consultant if given the opportunity. Half of those polled evaluate their financial plans for retirement at least once a year, compared to one quarter who say “occasionally, when I get around to it;” and 19% who say they “never” do. Nearly a third of American adults describe themselves as either “apprehensive,” “panicked” or “clueless” about their retirement preparedness. Younger people (ages 18-34) are the most likely to admit to feeling “clueless” (22%) about saving for retirement.
