Difficult conversations – the financial impact of divorce, dementia and death

Divorce, dementia and death are three big issues that disrupt family life. Almost all of us know someone who has been affected by at least one. They can have huge and far-reaching consequences but because they are difficult to think about – and even harder to talk about – people very often don’t get the support they need.

Financial planner Eliana Sydes has chosen to specialise in helping people during times of disruption. She describes disruption as the points in your life when something comes along that you didn’t want but that you have to do something about, and usually within a short timeframe. Eliana was named Financial Adviser of the Year at the Women in Financial Advice Awards 2018 for her work in this area.
