Profession shows suprising optimisme in the face of a complex and challenging market environment

Cardif has released the results of its fifth annual Barometer of Independent Financial Advisors (IFAs). The survey was carried out in France from 23 May to 10 June 2011 in conjunction with TNS Sofres, a leading French market research and opinion survey firm. The Barometer covers a representative sample group of 500 IFAs .

This latest survey underlined three key factors:

A realistic optimism on their own profession shared by the great majority of IFAs,
Diversification of savings, a trend confirmed in the context of recent market trends,
Availability is the profession's key strength, cited by 66% of the IFAs surveyed.

IFAs remain optimistic but realistic about their profession.
