I am writing with regard to Towry Law tearing up its Aifa membership. I was already nervous about the future of the IFA world but now I am really concerned
How on earth will Aifa cope without a forwardthinking “giant of the industry” such as the chief executive of Towry Law?
Previously, I always thought it was a mistake to criticise fellow members of any profession but I obviously defer to Andrew Fisher’s greater wisdom.
We must stand up for his scathing attack against Aifa’s ridiculous questioning of the RDR. The man is a genius, with his hilarious “Amalgamation of Ignorant Flat Earth Advocates” putting him in the Oscar Wilde league for great witticisms.
I am extremely grateful to Andrew. For the last few weeks, I had been living under the illusion that the RDR was a discussion paper, with the FSA wanting all parties’ views on the subject.
I was even thinking about joining the debate. However, If Andrew knows that Aifa are “flying in the face of the RDR”, it must surely mean that things are already set in stone. I can’t imagine that there is any point in us mere mortals swimming against the tide.
