Why seek Independent Financial Advice

In this article I want to explore why some people don’t seek Independent Financial Advice.

  • “ I don’t need it” 

Have you really got the time, knowledge and expertise to research the thousands of investment products on the market, to find the best deal for you? If you work with an Independent Financial Adviser they will do this for you, carefully monitoring your investments in line with the agreed criteria. At FSC we aim to do this in an honest and trustworthy way, on a regular basis.

  • “Can I afford it?” 

Expense may be a reason as to why some people have yet to seek Independent Financial Advice. Why not come in for an initial consultation at our expense, you might be pleasantly surprised at the costs involved. With our knowledge, experience and expertise it is likely that we can handle your savings and investments more efficiently than you can. Our charging structure is competitive and for the level of bespoke service you will receive we believe it will make it worth your while. We like to see our clients twice a year, more if we agree this is necessary for clients that have signed up for our ongoing service. We want to make our clients money, make them happy and build a good relationship with them.

  • “Can I trust an Independent Financial Adviser?” 

When working with an Independent Financial Adviser trust is very important. The financial services industry is heavily regulated and our regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), keeps a very careful eye on what we all do and takes action where necessary. After 35 years in the industry I always aim to keep your money in the right place, at the right time, all the time.

My fellow Advisers and I at FSC believe we give good, honest, common sense advice and many of our clients have trusted us with their investments for up to 35 years. Don’t just take my word for it, please take a look at the testimonials from some of our clients on our website.

  • “I don’t want to risk losing my money” 

Some people think that in order to make reasonable and sensible returns you need to take high risk. Our clients range from high risk takers to low risk takers. We will carefully assess your attitude to risk versus reward and recommend the most appropriate investments for you. Our clients use us because they trust us and we are their eyes and ears on the lower risk end of the market. When general market interest rates are low, we hunt out and aim to find products that give smoother but better returns than you can get on the High Street.

There should never be any barrier to getting good quality Independent Financial Advice, just keep an open mind, you’ve absolutely no reason to be afraid. We specialise in giving good honest advice that works, all at a sensible and reasonable cost. Why not give us a call and put us to the test?  What have you got to lose?
