  • What is the difference between an Independent Financial Adviser and a restricted financial advisor? 22-08-19
    The phrase ‘Independent Financial Adviser’ has a particular meaning that’s set out in the rules that financial advisers have to follow. To be called independent, a financial adviser must be able to offer a broad range of retail investment products and give consumers unbiased and unrestricted advice based on a comprehensive and fair analysis of the market. A financial adviser that is not independent can be called ‘restricted’ if they only recommend certain types of investment products or products from a limited number of providers.
