The new website aims to connect people who require financial advice with the right independent financial advisor based on their unique needs, helping them better make decisions not just on financial providers, but also as to which financial products they take up.
According to spokesperson Maryam Khorsandi, "There is growing demand from clients needing to find a suitable financial adviser that is not only able to deal with their initial requirements but also provide them with holistic financial planning, be it relating to long term savings, retirement planning or family protection".
Among other areas, Find Financial Advisors helps clients with the following financial services:
- Pensions advice
- Investment advice
- Mortgage advice
Maryam Khorsandi continues, "The choice for clients looking for advice is overwhelming, we aim to make this process as simple and painless as possible, in turn providing financial advisors with the types of clients they are most suited for."
The Find Financial Advisors site is simple, cleanly laid out and most importantly focussed around helping consumers find a professional high quality IFA. The site is totally independent and feedback is proactively taken from clients to ensure they have received the highest level of service.
By entering a postcode or leaving some very basic details, consumers can use FindFinancialAdvisors.co.uk to access over 10,000 IFA’s. Consumers are connected with the most appropriate financial advisor to speak to about their financial decisions.
Find Financial Advisors prepared for the dramatic changes that are due to take effect in the retail investment marketplace by the end of 2012; Namely, the Retail Distribution Review.
In 2006 the FSA launched the RDR to address what the FSA saw as three fundamental challenges within the retail investment market.
1. Improve the clarity which firms describe services to consumers
2. Address the potential for advisor remuneration to distort consumer outcomes; and
3. Increase the professional standards of investment advisors
Essentially what this means is that Financial Advisers will have to make efforts to ensure financial advice is simpler to understand, ensure that the advice they give is not biased by the commissions that they might receive and elevate their standards of professionalism in their dealings with customers.
This is a significant win for the consumer that is causing many IFA’s to leave the industry rather than meet the challenges of the Retail Distribution Review, and Find Financial Advisors is prepared for this reform and only works with Advisory firms who have fully embraced this change.
