The initial meeting is usually free of cost and we will always agree how the advice is to be paid for in advance.

Our overriding principle is that all costs should be clear and transparent not bundled in complex products. For this reason we work on a fee basis which will be agreed in advance of any advice. These fees can be deducted from products if you prefer, the key is you are in control of the cost of advice.
