IFA network launches new website

IFA network Financial Advisor has launched a new website designed to offer unbiased reviews and information on the financial advisers in the UK.

The new site has been set up to allow customers to make decision on both financial providers and the financial products they take up and will cover the likes of mortgage advice and advisors, investment and investing strategy and pensions advice.

The service will also cover information on IFA offering tax, credit repair, loan and insurance advice services.

Spokesperson Alan Worthing says: “In the current economic climate, there are various shopping websites which can compare product prices.

  2. Didn’t Rubii launch something like this a while ago? I wonder how this new service will be different/better and add value to IFAs?

    Certainly there is a place for review sites in all industries, but most financial services reviews and comments are taking place on social networking sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, SagaZone. It’s even now possible to leave a comment on a Google search result.
