Hadyn Green of the Pep Shop says: "Show me one IFA who is prepared to arrange face-to-face meetings to discuss Peps" (Money Marketing, December 18). Certainly – me!
Does he really think that the average IFA is so thick that he or she does not realise that 50 per cent of Britain's working population earns under £15,000 a year? Of course, this is true and, indeed, a far higher percentage than that of my clients are in this situation.
I often do face-to-face meetings just to discuss putting money on deposit and won't earn a bean. Does Mr Green do that?
If one puts the bottom line bottom, where it should be, and the clients top, where they should be, everything else falls into place.
I see that Mr Green is prepared to send a £1,000 Christmas cheque to a charity if he can find a full-commission IFA who has provided the general public with more meaningful information on Peps than them. As I do not know what they have done, if he will provide information, I can compare it and my nominated charity is the NSPCC.
