What is meant by "independent" and what should it mean to me? An independent financial adviser is one who acts on behalf of his/her client, rather than working as an agent of any one financial institution. This means that the client can receive unbiased advice regarding a number of products and product providers to ensure that the client can choose from the best of the market
What do the above services cost? Independent financial advisers and other finance professionals either charge a fee for their services or earn commission on the products they sell. The exact nature of their charging structure will be determined by your own circumstances and requirements but this will always be made clear to you at the start. There is no charge or obligation for submitting a request for advice, this will simply enable the appropriate adviser to establish whether or not they can be of assistance and outline their charging structure. The choice is then entirely yours as to whether to proceed or not.
