There are only a few days left for advisers to take part in a survey aimed at gauging the mental health and wellbeing of those in the financial services industry.

The Adviser Wellbeing Research was launched at the end of September with the survey closing on Monday, October 10.

So far, more than 450 Kiwi advisers have taken the time to fill in the survey being run by Sydney-based researcher Dr Adam Fraser, founder of The e-lab, and Dr John Molineux.

AIA NZ is sponsoring the research and will make the findings available to the industry.

The study aims to understand the current state of mental health of Kiwi financial advisers, explore the habits and attitudes of those advisers who are currently experiencing positive mental wellbeing, and understand the mindsets and behaviours needed to evolve and manage significant market disruptions.

AIA NZ chief partnership insurance officer Sam Tremethick says the goal is to get over 500 responses.

"While 250 is sufficient for the survey to be statistically viable, we would like to have around 500 to add richness to the data gathered and ensure we have a good cross-section of the New Zealand adviser market involved.

“We are pleased with the level of participation so far and have found the volume and depth of some of the verbatim responses really interesting," Tremethick says.

"These verbatim responses provide us with a deeper level of insight and more importantly demonstrate support for this industry-wide initiative.

"We genuinely thank everyone who has taken the time to complete the survey."

He says the survey is not just for life advisers and he’d love to hear from fire and general, commercial, investment, home loan and risk advisers as well.

“We are expecting to receive the finished report around Christmas time, and will look to release it to the wider market in the New Year once everyone is back from the holiday period in February.”
