Percent of respondents that highly trust the profession: 14% (2% higher than 2008) In a 2016 poll, 65% of respondents reported a lack of trust in people working in the financial services industry to at least some degree. It may be for good reason: From 2005 to 2015, about 87,000 financial advisors were found guilty of misconduct. Maybe that's why today there are so many television commercials portraying financial advisors as virtual members of the family.
