Nick Hurman FCII, MBA, Chartered Insurer, provides a timely
examination of options around making good advice accessible to the
mass market in the post-RDR investment market.
A long-standing review led by the FSA of how investment advice
is given to consumers in the UK is reaching its conclusion with a
number of major reforms around adviser professionalism, how their
services are labelled and how advisers are remunerated coming into
force at the end of this year. There has been much debate over
whether these reforms would restrict access to all but the
wealthiest consumers, and the very people who will most need
assistance with how to best save will only be able to afford
non-advised solutions. In this article, Nick Hurman returns to the
Thinkpiece series with a timely examination of options around
making good advice accessible to the mass market.
