Most Americans are convinced that a recession is coming next year, according to a recent survey, and that may lead them to seek the assistance of a financial advisor.

In a poll of more than 1,000 U.S. households sponsored by the Million Dollar Roundtable (MDRT), 82% of respondents said that they are at least “somewhat nervous” that they will be impacted by a recession in the next  year or so. Twenty-three percent of the respondents described  themselves as “extremely” or “very” nervous.

If those feelings are validated by an actual recession in the next 12 months, advisors’ workload is likely to increase, according to the survey. Of respondents with a financial advisor, 32% said that their dependence on professional advice would increase during a recession, with another 56% saying their dependence would remain the same.

Of respondents without access to financial advice, 62% said a significant change in income, assets or wealth would cause them to seek out an advisor for assistance.

Many of the respondents with a financial advisor want their advisor to offer proactive guidance in the case of a recession – but not necessarily with a traditional sit-down meeting. More than half, 53%, want advisor to reach out with tailored advice via phone or email if a recession occurs, while nearly the same proportion, 51%, want their advisor to proactively meet with them in person. Only 21% of respondents said that they wanted advisors to share news articles and resources with them during a recession.

Americans with financial advisors say that meeting with their advisor makes them feel more confident – 44% of the professionally advised respondents said that having an advisor makes them feel “much more confident” in their financial future, while another 40% said that they feel “somewhat” more confident after meeting with an advisor.

The top methods the respondents with advisors are using to find an advisor are still references from family and friends, named by 49% of the respondents, and a web search, named by 13%.

MDRT’s survey was conducted among 1,048 consumers in the U.S. on Oct. 21, 2019.
