The tax treatment of investments such as these, including the initial tax relief available, are dependent on the investment vehicle successfully maintaining qualifying status throughout its life.
Many tax advantaged investments are high risk investments and we strongly recommend investors do not consider investing on the basis of this information alone or investing without obtaining financial advice from an appropriate source.

4 Tips When Choosing a London Based IFA

4 Tips When Choosing a London Based IFA 

Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs) can help you make more informed investments that will bring you significant returns and prove sustainable in the long run. But finding the right London based IFA for you is not easy. You'll have to do a lot of research and interviewing, and you must also consider the following tips.

- IFAs that offer fee-based advice tend to be a better choice for large investments than IFAs that charge you a commission, as they will be less likely to tailor their advice in order to get a bigger fee. In such cases, you can say that the former are more impartial.

- IFAs that request commissions are often a more convenient choice for beginner investors who don't want to pay a financial adviser without seeing some results first. With commissions-based IFAs, there's no need to pile the cash for the fees.

- Ask friends and relatives first. It's preferable to work with an adviser who you know is really independent and trustworthy. In this case, the opinion of a friend or a family member is more valuable than a review on the web. Trust is extremely important when it comes to financial matters.

- Make sure he or she is really independent.

Only a 100% independent financial adviser will be able to search all the financial markets to discover the most lucrative investments for you. Sadly, not all advisers who recommend themselves as independent are truly so. You might encounter restricted advisers, who cannot search all the markets, or are affiliated to providers. That said, some advisers might be restricted because of their specialisation, which make them highly desirable if you're trying to invest in the area in which they are experts.
