How we are paid

You have the option to pay for our services by way of a fee or alternatively we can be paid commission on a product we arrange.  We will tell you how much commission we receive.   We have detailed below the payment options we offer.

Where we charge a fee, this will be agreed with you in writing before we carry out any work and confirmed in a fee agreement.  The amount we charge will depend on the amount and complexity of the work.  Our typical charges for general financial planning are:

Director   £125 per hour and 0.5% per annum of the value of the funds under advice thereafter
Financial Adviser   £100 per hour and 0.5% per annum of the value of the funds under advice thereafter
Administration   £50 per hour

 

 

 

 

For example, if a Financial Adviser spent 4 hours providing services the fee would be 400               (4 * £100)

Where we receive commission, we will tell you how much the commission will be before the transaction. Commission is paid from product charges to your investment or policy.  The amount of commission will vary according to the type of product, the amount you invest, and (sometimes) how long you invest for or your age when you start the product. 

The following table details our typical commission rates for the products with which we most commonly deal.
