More than 60 per cent of brokers believe the federal government is not doing a good job of managing the Australian economy.
According to The Adviser’s Q3 Sentiment survey, 61.6 per cent of respondents said the government is not doing a good job – a 26.6 per cent increase on this time last year.
This sentiment was echoed by a recent straw poll which indicated that the majority of brokers would prefer a change in government.
In late August, brokers were asked which political party they thought would be better for the broking industry, and a resounding 84.5 per cent indicated that a coalition led government would be the better choice.
1st Street director Jeremy Fisher is one of the 84.5 per cent of brokers that support a coalition led government.
According to Mr Fisher, the coalition has always been more focussed on the health and longevity of small businesses.
“I think Liberal would do a better job. They have always been dedicated to helping the small business owners and I don’t think the Labor government has ever really shown its loyalty towards this particular business segment," Mr Fisher told The Adviser.
