Good Design Eases Financial Anxiety

Financial stress is a common issue that many people face, and it can have a significant impact on their overall well-being. As financial advisors, it is essential to understand that your clients may not only be seeking functional solutions but also emotional support when it comes to managing their finances. Every year the American Psychological Association lists what causes people anxiety. And money stress tops that list almost every year. Financial fears and uncertainty impact many aspects of people’s lives and their ultimate search for happiness.

A factor advisors often overlook when trying to quiet client financial worries—and it overarches more than you might expect—is using good design principles for your office environment and in the presentations you use. Good design can help create an environment that promotes a sense of security. Good design has a positive impact on clients’ emotional state, calming their tensions and inspiring tranquility.

For example, the design of an advisor’s office can significantly impact a client’s experience. A well-designed space with comfortable seating, calming colors, and natural light creates a positive and welcoming atmosphere that helps promote relaxation. The design of financial planning presentations can also impact how clients perceive the information and your advice. Clear and visually appealing designs make complex financial information more accessible and easier to understand, reducing the likelihood of confusion and anxiety.

In an effort to help advisors create a more holistic and supportive client experience, Elements was founded on good design principles. While it’s a challenge to address not only your clients financial concerns but also their emotional well-being, don’t overlook the impact of good design. And the thoughtful design used by Elements can help you meet that goal.
