Financial advice charges

Our financial advisers typically charge 1-2% of the assets advised on (+VAT where applicable), with a minimum charge of £995 for investment advice, or £1,495 for financial planning. This is a one-off charge which will depend on the complexity of your situation, the time needed to understand your goals, and to provide personal recommendations.

Any recommendations concerning the transfer of secured benefits, such as a defined benefit pension (e.g. final salary pension), will have a separate fee structure, which your adviser will discuss with you. Read our financial advice Key Features and Terms and Conditions for more information.
