As a company which distributes its products exclusively via IFAs, we are very interested in how the public perceives those that present our products.
Our own research also points to the fact the public and specifically our clients have a high level of trust and satisfaction in IFAs, often higher than other professionals such as solicitors.
For example, responses to our quarterly customer survey over the last two years have indicated that customers rate the advice provided by their IFA higher than the advice provided by their solicitor.
With all the current volatility, some may find these results surprising. As a group dedicated to IFA distribution, we don’t.
