Investor Profile is an independent financial adviser
We help people improve their old investment and pension plans, and to get more of a grip on their current and future finances.
Being an independent financial adviser carries far greater requirements than it ever has done. As of 1 January 2013 the Financial Services Authority (the regulator at the time of the changes coming into effect) imposed stricter guidelines for those firms that wished to continue offering genuinely independent financial planing advice.
The alternative is for firms to offer you restricted advice, where the number of providers they consider for you is restricted to a select panel, or even just one, like banks may do. However we believe that to offer genuinely suitable advice every time to the clients we look after we need to remain independent financial advisers.
