Bryan Little is right to identify the pernicious practice of transferring policies Money Marketing, September 20).
I was surprised when I got notice that a client had transferred servicing rights elsewhere and wrote to him, only to discover that what he had intended was for his employee's financial advisers to get information about his current pension plan. The client switched back immediately.
The advisers in question should have contacted me as the client's current IFA and asked the relevant questions instead of which they acted dishonourably by seeking to undermine a long-standing client/IFA relationship for a few coppers.
It is at times such as this that those of us who put clients' interests before their own wonder whether we are in an absolute minority.
