ABSTRACT
This article discusses how job stress levels felt by financial advisers affect their health and business performance. A study developed by Vestment Advisors and the Financial Planning Association to determine the effects of workplace stress on personal health and business performance is presented. Competition between planners for clientele is presented as a main cause of workplace stress. Correlations between unhappiness at work, a lack of downtime, and poor financial performance are noted in the responses of some of the hardest working financial planners. The delegation of paperwork and strategic approaches to managing compliance issues are presented as two strategies for decreasing stress by improving time management.
