Depolarisation may force some advisers out of market – FSA

The FSA says depolarisation may force some advisers out of the market.

It says to the extent that the menu exerts some downward pressure on commissions, it is possible that some advisers will exit the market.

But it doubts depolarisation will be a significant driver of market exits, saying that any advisers that do exit are likely to be relatively inefficient, so the cost to consumers in terms of reduced competition and choice are likely to be marginal.
