Consultancy firm Aim Two Three has launched a ‘support hub’ service offering advisers a directory of vetted consultants.
Aim Two Three will use a network of freelance consultants to provide marketing, business planning, compliance and technical product support services to advisers.
Advisers will be charged £120 a year to use the service.
Aim Two Three partner David Ingram (pictured) says: “Many IFAs just don’t need all the services they currently pay for from support providers. Clearly, some advisory firms will need a full service provision but we will work with those advisers seeking an alternative to the current offerings.
“We will consult with advisory firms, advise them on solutions and provide the tools to do a job. It can be very difficult for firms to find competent local paraplanners or compliance consultants etc. We will do that work for them and introduce them to accredited firms.
“Our new service is being launched at a time when advisers will be looking to the post-RDR world and costs are a key issue. We can also work alongside support service providers to help reduce costs for advisers.”
