Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs) Questions Answered

What is the role of IFA?  Independent Financial Advisers should provide independent financial advice on your pensions savings, investments and equity release on your property if you need some cash later in life. The is an argument that everyone needs an IPA. They can become your personal 'go to' stockbroker and general financial fixer. That is why I would suggest they you find one in or around Farnborough or at least within Hampshire. I would not recommend one miles away or never answered the phone. Another good way is personal recommendation. Ask a friend. Your IFA will be an important person in your life. You need to get them right!

How do IFA make money?
Some IFAs are on commission and others charge. Many people believe that if they are to be truly 'independent' they should not have a financial relationship with the funds that they recommend their clients to invest - as their advice will be biased in favour of the funds which pay them the best commission. The way to avoid this is to ask them and then pay them a fee for their financial advice. 

How do I find an IFA? Have a look below at the list of IFAs around Farnborough. They are reviewed. Personally I would create a shortlist and simply visit them personally. There is nothing like knowing your IFA. That is the advantage of having a local one


Investing for beginners

This is a serious video about investing in the stock market. Crucially you will end up with realistic expectations.

My father was a stockbroker. The only thing that ever annoyed him were banks. Currently their 'interest rates don't even cover inflation! Personally I have got very keen on 'tracker funds' which simply track the stock market and are very cheap and usually perform as well or better than investment managers or stockbrokers - who are seldom cheap! You will often end up with a London or large city based firm rather than one around Farnborough let alone St Bernadettes Catholic Primary School ! However this does not matter. I have seldom met my stockbrokers. This said have a look below for financial advisers and stockbrokers that we have found with Hampshire.

Good luck!

Highly recommended Following a recommendedation I went to Mike for advice on a re-mortgage (which wasn’t a straight forward case). However I found Mike to be very professional and knowledgeable; within a week we had made an application and had it accepted. I then returned to Mike for Pension advice, again he knew his stuff and got me a great deal and dealt with all the paperwork. During both processes Mike kept me updated on the progress. I will use Mike again without hesitation if I need any further financial advice. Thank you

Would like to thank Michael for all his help with our mortgage, he has been very efficient, professional and knowledgeable. He is reliable and kept in touch every step of the way.

Nice new Business Park with selection of quality offices.

Nice stretch of the river Blackwater. You can catch chub, perch, roach and even a suprise pike. The river is very reedy, so easiest to fish near/under the underpasses. Treat the area with respect (no litter etc) so the business park owners don't get upset with visits from an occasional angler over the weekend!
