In December 2017, FlexShares ETFs engaged third-party research firm Riedel Strategy to conduct a national study of occupational wellness among financial advisors, to better understand the advisor experience and help advisors live better, more productive and satisfied lives. Nearly 700 people completed and returned the survey – giving us insight into the health and wellness of advisors from a range of firms across the United States. What we found, coming in the midst of a long-running period of market stability, might seem counterintuitive: Advisors are under a lot of stress. Conversely, they also are very satisfied with their occupational choice.
