Summary
In recent years, the financial advisor market in Australia has been mainly focused on adapting to new regulations, with customer retention and acquisition suffering as a result. With key elements of the FOFA regulations largely bedded in among advisors, they can now focus again on growing the customer base. However sustainable growth in the client base will only be achieved by effective targeting of the client base based on customers' financial goals and circumstances.

Key Findings
- Independent financial advisors (IFAs) still rank as the leading outlet for Australians receiving advice with a 34% share of the market.

- The growing popularity of self-managed superannuation funds has supported the renewed growth in the number of Australians with ongoing financial advice.

- Growing affluence and an aging population have supported the growth of advisors' client base.

- Older affluent men remain the largest demographic among advisors' client bases, with all other demographics having lower penetration despite a greater willingness to seek financial advice.
