Less than 10% of independent advisers in the UK are female, but at AV Trinity we are fortunate that half of our advisory team are female.
Whilst all of our advisers work across the gender divide, AV Trinity understands that there will be times when you may feel more comfortable speaking with a female adviser. There is an increasing number of women who are taking control of their finances, and who want to be advised by another woman in a straightforward, jargon free manner.
The small number of independent female IFAs is all the more surprising when you consider that -
- It is predicted that women will own more than 60% of the nation’s wealth by 2025
- A report by Tulip Financial Research in 2010 estimated that there are now more than 70,000 women in the UK with liquid assets of over £2.5m
- There were over 100 women in the 2011 edition of the Sunday Times Rich List
Female clients often come to AV Trinity as a result of a change in their personal circumstances ; bereavement, divorce and the need to care for elderly relatives. At times like this we can help to ease the burden of any financial turmoil with our sympathetic, yet professional approach. Building a long term, trusting relationship with our clients, is something upon which we pride ourselves.
Independent research shows that good female IFAs are perceived as being -
- Better natural listeners
- More adept at building empathy with clients
Around half of all GPs and a majority of solicitors are now female and it would be no surprise if the numbers of female IFAs did not rise to similar numbers.
At AV Trinity we certainly don’t believe that our female advisers are any better than our male advisers – just DIFFERENT. Our clear, high quality advice is given within a trusting and friendly environment. You have nothing to lose by contacting us for an initial discussion which will be at our cost with no obligation whatsoever
