Having just caught up with my backlog of issues of Money Marketing, something worries me. Aifa’s taskforce seems to have a membership with a preponderance of network bosses and similar.
Where are the smaller IFAs? Les Shields seems to be the only one. I am sure that all these fine people will do their best but many of them are subsidiaries or part-owned by providers which may create conflicts of interest.
Nor is there a straight correlation between the commercial needs of a network and the needs of its members. Witness the enthusiasm shown for multi-ties by many networks last year which was not shared by their membership.
Surely Les needs some help? Come on Aifa, you must still have a few smaller IFAs who would like to volunteer.
