How do I choose a good independent financial adviser?

When choosing an IFA, here are some attributes to look for.

A good independent financial adviser will have a solid track record. They will be experienced in a broad range of areas; investments, estate planning, pensions, inheritance tax, financial planning and equity release.

They will communicate regularly and be proactive. The best financial advisers will be able to communicate complex financial matters in easy-to-understand terms. At Sterling & Law – Hampshire, this is what or advisers pride themselves on in addition to offering accurate advice, and tailored support. 

Trusted, reputable IFAs will have a transparent fee structure and should have a clear investment proposition.

What does an independent financial (IFA) adviser do?

An independent financial adviser (IFA) assists individuals and families with a range of matters. 

This includes helping plan for their retirement, invest in a pension or help them with some long-term financial planning. Furthermore, an adviser supports people in complex areas such as inheritance tax, equity release, estate planning and tax. 

Additionally, an IFA supports those who are dealing with a change of financial circumstance or a significant life event. This includes divorce, death of a family member, business partner or ill health.

How much do independent financial advisers charge?

Typically, IFAs charge a yearly fee for funds under management. This is a percentage of the funds they are managing on behalf of a client. 

At Sterling & Law – Hampshire, there are three clear parts to our process.

The first is meeting with you and finding out about the nature of your requirements. This initial consultation is complimentary – no charge from us. The second is creating your financial plan. The third is the ongoing relationship, advice, management and maintenance of your plan.

Any costs for managing your investments or creating a financial plan will be discussed with you by your adviser. For ad-hoc services, typically advisers charge a set fee.

What’s the difference between an independent financial adviser and one who is ‘restricted’?

An IFA has access to the whole of the investment market. Their role is to offer impartial advice, focused on the client’s specific needs. 

A ‘restricted’ financial adviser will only be able to offer advice and subsequently recommend a smaller pool of pensions and investments. 

Ask yourself this question: Is it better to work with someone who can access and recommend pensions and investments from the whole of the market or one who can’t?
