The cost of our services
Payment for initial advice services
Before we provide any services to you, we will gather information about your circumstances and needs. A small charge maybe made for this but will be offset against any fees or via adviser charging from product providers.
After this we will charge you:
A one-off fee or adviser charge as a percentage of the initial investment amount as follows:
£1 - £25,000 - 3% - subject to a minimum of £500 and a maximum of £750
£25,001 - £50,000 - 2% - subject to a minimum of £500 and a maximum of £1000
£50,000+ 1% - sunject to a minimum of £500 and a maximum of £2500
Example: If you invest a lump sum of £40,000 into a personal pension plan, we charge a fee or an an adviser charge of 2% of the amount invested, which would mean an initial fee or adviser charge of £800 (£40,000 x 2% = £800)
We will tell you how much the initial fee or adviser charge will be before you complete an investment, but you may ask for this information earlier.
