Citywire's Ian Horne has spent the last five years speaking to financial advisers across the UK, and having done so, has reached two conclusions:
1) the quality of advice in the UK is something we should be proud of;
2) people don’t usually know what financial advice is, what financial guidance is, or how these things might make them better off and happier.
So… with the trusty Citywire camera crew of Alan Walsh and Elliot Vick, Ian travelled across the UK to let the public know what advice is all about.
This is a piece for advisers, but perhaps more importantly it is for the public too. We need to explain what advice and guidance are, why they are good, and what people can do to make sure they get the right service, from the right people with the right qualifications.
