Finding a financial adviser

Having looked through our site, and perhaps those of other fund managers, you may be feeling confused as to what investment solution is best for you.

As a fund provider, we are not allowed to tell you which funds we think would be suitable for your personal investment needs, so we suggest you seek professional advice. You can get this from financial advisers (commonly known as IFAs).

Financial advisers vary from large companies with many branches throughout the country to small local firms who may only have one or two advisers.

If you need to find an financial adviser, a good place to start is, which offers an independent directory of FCA registered advisers.

When selecting a financial adviser, you should check that they are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. This means you will have access to available complaints procedures and compensation schemes if things go wrong. To check the status of an adviser, go to the Firm & Person Check Service on the Financial Conduct Authority's website, or call them on 0845 606 1234 (calls charged at local rates).

All financial services and investment funds in the UK are overseen and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
