IFAs returning to their desks after the summer holidays have just three and a half weeks to respond to the Treasury-commissioned Sandler review which could fundamentally change their business.
Ron Sandler has set the deadline for the consultation phase for the end of September, just two months after it was announced.
For many IFAs, making a response may be a baffling exercise. To help IFAs in making sense of the paper, MM this week publishes the tips of four experienced campaigners.
Aifa director general Paul Smee, LIA director of public affairs John Ellis, Cicero Consulting director Iain Anderson and Supply Media managing director Paul Burgin each give advice for IFAs to answer a consultation paper of this size and importance.
Burgin says: “Responding need not be hell. Respond simply to the relevant questions they pose, with logic and constructive comments.”
