We go into detail on what today's average adviser looks like, including age and income, what the average financial planning client looks like, how many advisers are entering vs exiting the industry, and what the adviser of the future should be doing. Angus also provides insight into what projects are next in store for Adviser Ratings, including some exciting new developments with David Koch.

Angus Woods is the founder of Adviser Ratings, an online financial adviser review site for consumers. An accountant by trade, Angus has enjoyed roles at companies such as Macquaire and Virgin Money, developing a taste for entrepreneurialism. Writing a business case for a consumer review website for financial advisers, the idea was parked in the bedside table for a number of years before being turned into a reality in 2014. Understanding the value of good financial advice, and the ramifications of poor advice, Angus set out to build a central repository for consumers to find their perfect adviser. Thus, adviser ratings was born.
