It seems Americans are more worried about their assets than their abs. Allianz released its second annual New Year's Resolution survey Tuesday, which found 44% of Americans say they are likely to use a financial advisor's services in 2011, compared with just 26% who said they would use a personal trainer.
That may seem like good news for advisors, but just one-third of respondents said they will "actually include a financial plan in their list of 2011 resolutions." It may be comforting to know few people avoid making a plan out of fear; just 6% said it was too complex, and 4% said it was too scary. The main reason respondents are not resolving to make a financial plan is that they "don't make enough money to worry about it" (34%).
