How to Find an IFA You Trust

(6 Posts)

Dearest Fellow Vipers,

I think I need to find myself an independent financial adviser. I need some advice on specific topics now but I'm really looking for someone I can trust as my finance 'person' for the long haul....however I'm a little hmm about IFA's as unfortunately the few I've met have been very 'salesy' with more than a touch of the 'second car salesperson' about them.

I want to find someone who will give me the best advice even if that is 'do nothing' which means no commission for them.

Is this possible? How do I find such a person?

Any recommendations in the Surrey/Hampshire/London area?

My specific initial advice wanted is around:

- Frozen ex-employer pensions: whether to keep them or transfer them
- Setting up a new private pension
- Investment planning (small scale)

I used an amazing guy, very unsalesy and I had massive doubts before too. Is in London but keenly priced. Trouble is I can't remember his name. Might have in my address book.

I'll pm you, I'm Surrey/Hampshire borders and am happy with mine for similar work.

Got it. Ru Dalton. Really genuine guy and never made me feel pressured to sign up to more time with him. Pretty sure I didn't pay for the consultation at the beginning either. Are you on linkedin, as you can find him on there?

Ru's number is 07886 352160 (Mobile)
