Taking financial advice is going to cost you. But when it comes to making life-changing financial decisions, it might save you money in the long run.

This guide will help you understand what a financial adviser is and whether you need to use one. It’ll explain the questions you should ask and, most importantly, how much it’ll cost.

What is a financial adviser?

Throughout your life you’re likely to need different financial products. A financial adviser can help you make the right decision about the best product for you.

While the advice isn’t free and DIY options are available, if you’re looking at getting a complex product, even some money-savvy people see the value in paying for an adviser to ensure they get it right.


There are two types of financial advice you can get, independent or restricted

 Independent financial advisers (IFAs)

If an adviser is ‘independent’ or a firm advertises that it gives ‘independent advice’ this means that it’s able to advise and sell products from any provider right across the market. Therefore you should get the very best advice and products tailored just for you.

Restricted advisers
