Financial advice

The decisions that you make about your finances are very important as they could impact the financial security of you and your loved ones. We understand that the world of pensions, investments, and insurance products can be a little confusing and strongly recommend that you seek advice before making any decisions about your finances.

Independent financial advisers (IFAs) can be found nationwide, so you will be able to find one near to where you live. Appointments normally take place face-to-face, and the adviser will take your own personal circumstances into consideration before recommending products suitable for you and your lifestyle. An IFA is independent and will normally look across a wide range of providers to find the best product for you. However, some financial advisers only recommend products from certain providers; it's worth checking before you go.

You can find more information about getting financial advice on the Money Advice Service website. If you haven't got a financial adviser at the moment and you would like to speak to one you can find one at www.unbiased.co.uk or in your local phone book.
