Our Services and how much we charge
The following pages describe our charges, and more importantly to you, what we do for these charges in order to add considerable value to your financial arrangements.
Our regulator passed legislation on 31st December 2012 meaning that commissions were banned from this date on investments and pension advice, and replaced by Adviser charging. In short, this will bring in increased professionalism as well as end disproportionately high commissions paid to advisers which previously didn’t reflect the amount of work actually carried out. The new regime will introduce transparent charging arrangements, agreed between you and us for specific services we provide.
Our charges and services are labelled in three distinct categories for both personal and business financial advice;
- Full advice Initial work – covering a multitude of financial needs to ensure that no stone is left unturned.
- Transactional Initial work – This allows you to just choose specific areas of your finances where you need assistance within a one off advice process.
Ongoing Servicing work – Whereby investments and pension plans agreed in the initial work phase, are regularly reviewed to track any changes in personal or financial circumstances, ensure than specified targets remain on course, performance and tax efficient growth on your money monitored, and risk management maintained. Other servicing work can also be built in as you require – so for example inheritance tax reviews, future mortgage and insurance needs analysis etc
Where you have a complaint or dispute with us and we are unable to resolve this to your satisfaction then we are obliged to offer you the Financial Ombudsman Service to help resolve this. Please see the following link for further details:
