Should you take financial advice?
We have an advice help desk that will be able to guide you in deciding whether you would benefit from some advice. To determine this, they will do the following:
- Ask about your financial situation and aims, in order to identify possible areas of assistance
- Explain your options and their various benefits
- Identify and recommend the service that will best meet your needs
If you decide that you could benefit from our help, we will book you in for an initial consultation with a financial adviser, free of charge. If you want or need to take immediate action, we can often transfer you to a telephone adviser straight away.
