When managing money and building wealth, most people turn to the “experts” – the financial professionals who seem to have it all figured out. 

But over the years, I’ve come to a shocking realisation: the majority of professionals we rely on for financial guidance are actually not as knowledgeable about holistic wealth building as they seem. 

In conversations with curious teenagers, one question kept coming up: if you work in wealth management, you must be an expert on getting rich, right? 

This sparked an idea for me to map out the real skills of various financial occupations. 

I created a matrix with professions along the top and wealth-related attributes down the side. 

Then, I methodically marked each intersection as a strength or weakness per industry. 

The results were eye-opening. 

Most roles have a niche focus, with specialised abilities in a few areas but glaring capability gaps in others. 

Few experts can provide big-picture guidance across money management, investing, tax optimisation, and beyond when seeking personalised wealth planning advice. 

My goal is to reveal this reality and empower you to scrutinise advisors to ensure you get tailored advice to meet your changing needs. 

Let’s dive in.
