Health as a Key Component to Financial Planning and Security

BALTIMORE – October 6, 2016

New Transamerica Survey Shows Investors Identify Health as Key Component to
Their Financial Planning and Security.

Latest research-based insight also provides communications guidance for successful financial planning. New research results gathered by Transamerica indicate that the majority of investors want their\financial advisors to factor in health matters while building their financial future, and that effective communication between investors and their advisors is a key component in successful retirementplanning.

The findings are based on collaborative re-search between Transamerica and the independent Luntz Global Partners, which included focus groups held across the country, as well as data gathered in a2016 survey of 1,000 adults across the U.S. with a minimum annual household income of $75,000 and investable assets of at least $50,000.

A primary recurring theme from the consumer survey is the inherent relationship between health and wealth, with 81 percent of respondents indicating it would be “very valuable” or “extremely valuable” fora financial advisor to consider their health and potential health care expenses when building their financial strategy. And when asked what is most essential to their financial future, health was by far the most popular response (37%) – outpacing happiness (19%), security (19%) peace of mind (16%) and independence (9%). “Being aware that health is of paramount
importance to clients in building their financial security,advisors should use that know-ledge to suggest solutions that take into account the full scope of their essential long-term needs,” said Dave Paulsen, Trans-america’s chief sales officer.

Using the survey data, Transamerica has published a new resource for advisors – “The Transamerica Guide to Effectively Engaging Clients” – that provides insight, guidance and strategies on how advisors can best communicate and connect with their clients to build stronger, longer-lasting relationships.“It’s clear that better conversations result in
healthier and stronger relationships between advisors and clients when discussing their finances and financial future,” Paulsen said.
“Effective dialogue is essential in building trust and demonstrating value in order to deliver positive outcomes.”

Secret Ingredient: Protein

How it works: It takes more energy for your body to digest the protein in meat than it does for it to digest carbohydrates or fat, according to Doug Kalman, R.D., director of nutrition at Miami Research Associates, a nationally recognized pharmaceutical-research facility. "That means that the more protein you eat, the harder your body has to work to digest it, and the more calories you'll burn in the process," he says.

When researchers at Arizona State University compared the benefits of a high-protein diet with those of a high-carbohydrate diet, they found that people who ate a high-protein diet burned more than twice as many calories in the hours following their meal as those eating carbs. Even better, researchers in Denmark found that men who substituted protein for 20 percent of the carbs in their diets were able to boost their metabolisms, increasing the number of calories they burned each day by up to 5 percent.

Make it a healthy day!
