IFA Sheffield

Many people know a financial adviser as an IFA, actually IFA stands for Independent Financial Adviser so unless your adviser is independent they cannot call themselves an IFA.

The difference between an IFA and a financial adviser lies in the products they can offer. An independent  financial adviser can offer products from the whole of market and work for you. A financial adviser works for the company they work under and will usually only offer their products.

This robs you of the opportunity to see other companies products which could be better. If you are looking for an IFA in Sheffield contact Abbey Lane Financial Associates today.

Mortgage Rates – What could be the solution

All the talk in the news about mortgage rates is getting some people worried about their existing mortgage arrangements. Some people are even panic buying fixed interest mortgage deals. This could be beneficial if rates do rise because your mortgage payments would be fixed for a set period (usually 2-5 years).

However recently the Bank of England Governor, Mark Carney, has changed his view on the economy stating that rates would remain low despite the recent fall in unemployment. This prompts analysts to predict that rates shouldn’t be much different from now by the end of 2014. With maybe slightly higher rates due to both tougher lending rules and the fact that we will be closer to an eventual base rate rise.

The difference between Financial Advice and Independent Financial Advice

Many people do not understand the importance of Independent Financial Advice and it is not their fault. Some of these people do not understand the difference between a Financial Adviser and an Independent Financial Adviser and i will help to explain the difference to you.

A Financial Adviser works for an institution/product provider and usually only sells their products, whereas an independent financial adviser works for you. You pay an independent financial adviser a fee and for that fee they will research the marketplace to find the best deal for you. While a financial adviser can usually only recommend their companies products an independent financial adviser can research the marketplace to find potentially better products based on your goals and attitude to risk profile.

Also an independent financial adviser is not bias towards particular product providers as you are paying them a set fee for the advice. Financial Advisers could be prone to been bias towards a particular product provider due to the potentially higher commission that provider may pay.
