My Hero

Like many other industries, financial services are subject to vastly increased regulation and supervision for consumer protection; the Retail Distribution Review being a real turning point in regulatory controls.  This has made it increasingly difficult, indeed, virtually impossible, to be a GP of the financial services world.

"I was directed towards another truly professional service. "

Mr J Pallagi, Entrepreneur, North Yorkshire 

When the FSA began to regulate mortgages in October 2004 – M Day – this really highlighted the issue. The new Financial Conduct Authority further tightened mortgage regulated with the Mortgage Market Review in April 2014. Many advisers and even banks simply stopped arranging mortgages and the complexity of advice and products available across the spectrum means that more and more firms are specialising like Independent James. Combined with an increasingly litigious society, I believe that specialisation in Independent Financial Advice is the way forward. 

Bearing this in mind, I perceived available support across all areas being a vital tool in the box. Being a thorough holistic planner via a network of trusted individuals as opposed to simply saying, "Sorry, I can't help. Goodbye!" Being able to help you along the way towards specific, tailored financial advice from a number of different connections and trusted sources. 

By specialising in these areas, the key aim is that it enables you to receive more tailored, specific and high quality independent advice.   

We can also refer you towards trusted contacts in all areas in and around financial services - accountants, solicitors, surveyors, IFA’s who all fulfil important roles in the process.
