Frequently asked questions

Who can give financial advice?

Someone who gives financial advice must be registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and hold a qualification that the FCA recognises. The FCA regulates financial services companies. 

Is it worth paying for financial advice?

Paying for financial advice might not be for everyone, because if your financial life is simple and your knowledge covers everything you need day-to-day, you might not want expert help. But if you have a specific need a planner could come in handy – while it will cost you at the time, if you choose the right financial planner, in the long run it should more than pay for itself.

What’s the difference between a financial planner, a financial adviser, an IFA and a wealth manager?

Although there are different names for these positions, they are all similar roles. Financial planning is often referred to as wealth management, wealth planning or financial advice. Investment advisers and investment managers are different however and provide paid-for advice on specific investments.
