We've all heard the phrase 'people buy people'. But does this really apply to advising different genders? After all, a great financial adviser can deliver great financial advice to any client, regardless of their gender. But it is also true that there are additional benefits to an advice firm that can be gained by having a more diverse team. Moreover, there are sometimes particular sensitivities that women might face which would mean they are more comfortable with a female financial adviser. Talking to Simoney Kyriakou, senior editor for FTAdviser, for this In Focus podcast are Paula Hodge, chartered financial planner at Old Mill, and Zoe Dagless, senior financial planner for Vanguard Europe, who explain that greater diversity can bring greater strength.

    What role do providers have in plugging the advice gap?

    26:52

    As long as there have been financial advisers, there has been debate about how to plug the advice gap.But research has found that some 39m people have never sought any professional advice or guidance for their finances, and one in five advisers won't serve someone with less than £100,000.So there is clearly a gap to be plugged, but does the plugging of it fall to advisers? What role do providers have? And do the rules around advice and guidance help providers support their clients?This week Damian Fantato, digital editor of FTAdviser, is joined by Jamie Jenkins, director of policy at Royal London, and Prakash Chandramohan, director of strategy at Tisa, to discuss this.They discuss how the boundary between advice and guidance can be improved, how greater personalisation can help support savers who don't necessarily need advice, and why providers err on the side of caution when it comes to supporting their clients.The FTAdviser Podcast is the weekly podcast for financial advisers, brought to you by FTAdviser.

    How to help mortgage clients get back on their feet post-divorce

    22:36

    Breaking up is always difficult. Quite apart from the emotional aspects, the financial aspects are particularly difficult for both parties, with division of assets often needing solicitors and court orders. Although there is a need for professional advice, too often people think they will simply split the assets - the man gets the pension; the woman (especially if she is the primary carer for the children) gets the house. Or the house might be sold and the equity split between the two. But these are not always the best courses of action; and while it may be a stereotype that the woman ends up with the house and the children, it is also true in the majority of cases. And this comes with its own problems on affordability, especially if the partners were not married. Talking to FTAdviser's senior editor, Simoney Kyriakou, about the issues facing women on divorce and separation are Abbie Hookway, managing director of touchstone education; Preeti Ferrier, area director for Just Mortgages; and Catherine Beaumont, independent mortgage adviser at London Money.

    How will rising inflation affect financial planners?

    21:54

    For the past four months, the rate of inflation has beaten the Bank of England’s 2 per cent target. Despite saying that this rise will be “transitory”, the central bank has warned inflation might soar over 4 per cent before the end of the year - meaning it could reach its highest point in a decade, and so far governor Andrew Bailey has not confirmed that rates will rise in order to tackle this.This week, senior reporter Sally Hickey speaks to Lawrence Cook, head of UK intermediary distribution at Sanlam, and Michael Copeland, senior area manager at Wesleyan, about how advisers should be planning for high inflation.They discuss whether inflation will continue to rise, how advisers should plan for it and which assets they should and shouldn’t hold.The FTAdviser Podcast is the weekly podcast for financial advisers, brought to you by FTAdviser.

    How to approach later-life planning

    27:05

    We know there is a gender pay gap - and therefore there is a gender pension gap that needs to be filled. But often we forget that this lack of funding for women in retirement can also lead to a poorer outcome for women needing care in later life. So how can advisers help women get on a better financial footing in retirement? And what is needed to help educate female clients about their financial needs later on in life? Joining Simoney Kyriakou, senior editor of FTAdviser, to discuss these questions is Ben Mason, chief executive of Kinherit; Will Hale, chief executive of Key; and Tish Hanifan, founder of the Society of Later Life Advisers.
