Consumers' trust in the industry has increased steadily the last five years, but then dropped in 2018, according to Edelman's Trust Barometer, which was released in March.

Edelman's Trust Barometer also notes there were six trust declines in 2018, with the United State's having the largest decline.

United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong, Brazil, Colombia and France all followed the United States, according to the report.

The report noted that people prefer human interaction when seeking investment advice or settling disputed credit card charges. It also noted that people trust credentialed investment advisers over friends, family, websites, newsletters or other employees.
