Adviser reviews website VouchedFor is providing 2,000 free financial plans in a bid to raise awareness of the value of advice.

Consumers will be offered a bespoke financial plan from one of the website’s top-rated IFAs, based on a call with an adviser.

The website puts the retail value of the plan at £500. It will set out an individual’s net worth, and a suggested investment strategy.

VouchedFor managing director Adam Price says: “At VouchedFor we are passionate about the value of great advice and that’s why we’re offering UK consumers 2,000 free financial plans produced by the top-rated advisers we work with.

“The plans will outline some key considerations which could help transform individual situations.”
