Choosing an IFA – Guidance for Solicitors

The Lexcel Practice Management Standard 8.9 requires firms to adopt documented procedures for selecting barristers, expert witnesses and other professionals in the legal community, and it is good practice to extend the principle to include financial advisers. The following due diligence areas should be assessed when selecting financial advisers:-

  1. Independence. 
  2. Direct authorisation by the FCA.
  3. Fee-based remuneration.
  4. Qualifications.
  5. Disciplinary record.

As part of our process in developing a relationship we will provide you with a due diligence pack that can be used by your compliance department to assure you of our status as a financially strong, leading IFA and Discretionary Asset Management firm in the UK.
