Clear and Transparent Advice

Once you have had the opportunity to speak to one of our advisers during the free initial meeting, you will then be given the exact cost of the advice you require, so that you are able to make an informed decision. There are never any hidden costs and you will be required to sign an advice charge agreement before any work is carried out. You can elect to pay for the advice via the product being recommended or you can also pay us directly. For example, if you are seeking pension advice or retirement advice, the majority of our clients choose to pay us via the pension as this can be more tax efficient.
