Why should you consider a maintenance program from Independent
Historically, tied agents such as Banks and Insurance Company
salesmen have sold clients financial products often without
regard to the clients existing financial goals.
This has lead to clients accumulating different types of products
and the feeling that their financial planning was disjointed
and did not have a holistic or long-term aim. There was limited
continuity and often the feeling of having to buy products
so the adviser could be paid.
Advances in Financial Service markets and technology have
meant that the professional Independent Financial Adviser
can now deliver a true financial planning service on an ongoing
basis. If a maintenance program is effected a long-term professional
relationship can be established.
I hope you will agree that your financial adviser will need
to be paid. Payment for the maintenance program on an agreed
basis will ensure that a long-term relationship can be delivered
and without the perceived obligation for the client to “buy”
