How we get paid

Smart Money Advice charges fees for financial advice provided to a client.  The fee will depend on the scope of the advice provided.  A quote will be provided to you at the end of our first meeting.  

We charge ongoing fees for providing investment advice.  The fees depend on the investments that are being recommended to you.   The written statement of advice that you will be provided following our first meeting will clearly outline all of the ongoing fees to you. 

Insurance companies pay commission if we are successful in placing an insurance policy for you. The amount of the commission depends on the amount of the insurance premium.

We follow an advice process that ensures that our recommendations are made on the basis of your circumstances and what you are hoping to achieve.   We will always place your interests above our own. We undertake a compliance audit and a review of our compliance programme annually by a reputable compliance consultancy firm.
