Financial wellness: Knowing your broker

Take a listen to the first episode of a 13-week series on Financial Wellness on The Koketso Sachane Show.

Each week, Director at Emryn Wealth Financial Services, Ryan McCracken and guests chat to Koketso Sachane about useful financial tips and answer listeners' questions.

Emryn Wealth is an independent financial service provider. They offer various services including life assurance, small business advice, tax, retirement, investments, bond finance & more.

It was launched with the goal and purpose of adding value and partnering with our clients in their journey of creating wealth and protecting their lives and loved ones.

Ryan McCracken, Director at Emryn Wealth advises on the services of financial brokers because there tends to be a lot of negative views about them.

The industry has worked hard to regulate the industry to eliminate these negative perceptions.

Consumers are advised to ensure that their brokers are authorized and should be disclosed first. He also says a lot of consumers are not unaware of the processes of lodging complaints pertaining to financial services and providers.
