“The profession of financial planning is still very much in its infancy and yet it is essential to our financial survival and well-being. The saying, “Clients don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care,” is the mantra of this work, which shows that so-called “soft skills” go a long way to building up the relationship of trust between planner and client. This publication will serve both the seasoned financial adviser or planner and the novice starting out in the field. Every skill that one needs to become and remain a trusted adviser or planner lies within the pages of this book and it is truly a must-read for those who see financial planning as a calling and a noble profession.″ Prem Govender – Chair of the South African Savings Institute and Past Chair of the Financial Planning Institute.
