Summary "Financial advisers can play an important role with helping individuals make better financial decisions and improving their financial situations. In this report, the authors review evidence from the research literature about whether working with an adviser improves savings behavior, in general, as well as saving for long-term goals, particularly retirement. While much of the literature provides evidence that individuals who receive professional financial advice are more financially healthy than those who do not, few papers attempt to address the endogeneity concerns of reverse causation, limiting insights into whether advisers are causing improvements in their clients' savings behavior"--Publisher's description.
