It is sad. I agree. Every accountant I have ever met has a university degree with a lot of them obtaining postgraduate qualifications. Most financial planners I have met have a two day or two week (accelerated learning) diploma financial planning. Forget a relationship with a financial planner. Our firm and our clients are better off without them. I feel accountants should develop relationship with economists and refer their clients to them for financial advice. They are much better able to assist clients than financial planners.
