Choosing not to employ a financial adviser can significantly reduce your annual costs, saving you from unnecessary charges, especially when you don't require constant assistance. The cost spent on such services varies, often depending on the extent of work performed by the adviser.
Though advisers insist on regular consultations to forestall future issues, we propose a more cost-effective alternative. Rather than paying for frequent one-on-one sessions, you can leverage our daily updates, newsletters, group webinars, an extensive resource library, biannual check-ins, and unlimited email correspondences.
We're convinced that the majority can efficiently manage their finances with occasional aid from general financial planning. At times of stress or significant life transitions, personalised assistance may be essential. However, for most, a paid service, a banking app for financial planning, and comprehensive educational finance service could suffice. These tools offer routine updates and daily tips, helping you maintain financial control.
The Vouched For's 2023 Top Rated Financial Advisor Guide, published in the Times, reveals the expense of a continuous personal financial planning service:
Investing £250k with continuous advice: £14,805 - 5-year median cost (£5,165 upfront, £9,640 ongoing).
Creating a £100k investment plan with continuous advice: £7,597 - 5-year median cost (£2,795 upfront, £4,802 ongoing).
Contrast this with our charges:
Creating a general financial plan for a couple, irrespective of investment size, with continuous generic advice: £5,930 - 5-year cost (£3,950 upfront, £1,980 ongoing).
Take note, while the standard financial advisor rate is £196 per hour, we charge £200. The savings derive from eliminating unnecessary components from ongoing services, and avoiding "idle income." Opt for our aid in your initial 5 years, and your cost becomes £2,475, or a monthly payment of £49 for five years.
In the words of a Telegraph reader (18 July 2020):
"Financial advisors catering to the wealthy and uninformed might have their niche, but my experience shows they provide little value while charging hefty fees. All necessary advice can be sourced free online. Advisors don't offer superior products or options, merely seeking to tap into your assets and collect a fee."
While we acknowledge many advisors offer exceptional services to the ultra-rich, we also understand that perception matters. We're here to rectify this perceived problem. Allow us to demonstrate how.
