What are Independent Financial Advisers Leeds?

It’s true that not all financial advisers are called “independent financial advisers Leeds.” They may be called by other titles, such as “mortgage adviser,” “investment adviser,” and so on. If you want to know what a true independent financial adviser is, we’ll have to turn to the FCA’s definition:

“An adviser or firm that provides independent advice is able to consider and recommend all types of retail investment products that could meet your needs and objectives.” Independent advisers also consider products from other parts of the market and must offer unbiased, unrestricted advice.

Independent financial advisers are state regulated advisers that offer impartial, independent financial advice to cover all your financial advisory needs. These may include pensions, mortgage, protections, and investment portfolios, along with inheritance planning. An IFA (independent financial adviser is there to support your decision making in regard to financial matters.

They can also do a financial annual health check, review your near retirement pension provisions, and more.
