How much do financial advisers charge?
The fees that financial advisers charge do vary and will depend on the service and products they provide.

Always choose to speak to an Independent Financial Adviser, then you will be assured that the advice and products you are paying a fee for, are selected from the whole of the market and will be tailored to your individual circumstances.

At Vision IFAs, we charge an initial fee, that can be paid from any contract we agree with you or you can pay from your own funds. There is also the option to receive an ongoing service, paid for separately, for us to look after your interests and portfolio. All remuneration will be clearly explained before we start working together.

We have a fair and clear charging policy which is below the industry average and the maximum charge is 3% with ongoing fees of 0.75%. Vision will be paid a fee or commission depending on whether we look after your investment or help you with a protection product. 

Please note that our ongoing advice fee is optional and can be cancelled at any time.

Can I afford to retire?
When you can retire and with how much will depend on your circumstances and your current plan for retirement. Your financial adviser will help you to think about how much you need during retirement, when you want to retire and how much you are going to want to spend when the time comes.

Will you move home? What car do you want to drive?

How many holidays will you want and where to?

Do you want to help pay school fees for your grandchildren?

Affording the retirement of your dreams comes down to how much you have in your pension pots, what other assets you have and the preparations you have made for the future.

Retirement is bespoke to you, your lifestyle and your family circumstances. There are different factors to take into consideration before you retire. So you don’t worry about retiring it is helpful to speak to a financial adviser so you can understand where you are now, compared to where you want to be financially at retirement age. Then you will know if you can afford to comfortably retire if you don’t make any changes to your current retirement plan.

It is never too late to start planning for retirement. Still, the sooner you begin putting enough money aside for later in life, the more likely you are to enjoy being retired.

How can I pay less tax?
You can legally pay less tax by maximising your existing tax reliefs such as pension and savings allowances. You can put more money into your pension monthly, which means you pay less tax. Also, invest in tax-efficient investments such as ISA’s.

Self-employed or a business owner? Your Financial Advisor can help structure your business and draw money from your pension in a way that makes the most of your entitlement.

Sit down and discuss your current situation with an independent financial adviser here at Vision who can make sure you aren’t missing an opportunity to pay less tax.

Do I need a financial adviser?
A financial adviser can help you make the best use of your income, from saving thousands in tax deductions to getting the best return on your pension pot or investment. It would be best if you chose an independent adviser so they can search the whole of the available market to find the best products for you and your situation.

The right adviser will give you confidence and peace of mind that your financial future is taken care of. Together you will set out a plan to achieve a financial goal, and your adviser will become a trusted guide to ensure you remain on track to reach that goal.
