Re: Free Financial Advisor

When we looked for help both the building society and bank could only advise on their own products so they are far from independent although they are free.

No such thing as a free lunch mate !
Steer clear of anyone promising free financial advice unless it's your milkman !

Re: Free Financial Advisor

Nothing comes free. Financial advice has a cost. I guess I got lucky when I invested the bulk of the difference when I downsized. 1% fee,but I do get around 3.5 % income return and the capital has gone up just over 1%.

Re: Free Financial Advisor

Nom. did you look at the Money Advice Site I sent you, because I found a page for you that should have been specially about endowments? Was it any use or not?

Re: Free Financial Advisor

Yes ive looked Mups thanks for the link,i dont think its what i need as advised by Cab,i have several issues going on at the moment the outcome of which will depend on a response to something else. Without that response the rest is academic. I was hoping someone had personal experience of an Independent Financial advisor before i progress things further

Re: Free Financial Advisor

One possible solution to that problem is to take an accounting course and get a diploma of accounting. You can always use some extra financial skills and donít have to worry about advisors.
