Boost your income and ensure your contacts
are given the highest standard of advice

Whitchurch IFA Ltd was created to offer highly qualified, independent and whole-of-market financial advice from a low cost business model. This model lends itself well to professional introducers as we are able to maintain extremely high standards for our clients whilst offering market-leading introducer rates. The proposition we can offer introducers is therefore quite unique and highly profitable.

We operate a pure hand-off model under a written introducer agreement to minimise introducer liability and we pay a percentage remuneration on ALL accepted business recommendations provided to the client from the introduced meeting, not just on the service for which you refer each client. This can provide a significant revenue stream into your business without the hassle and liability of applying for and maintaining authorisation to provide financial advice through your own company.

Key Services we can provide for your clients

 Mortgage advice and arranging from the whole of the market

 Will-writing and Lasting Powers of Attorney for directors, partners and their families

 Life reviews - ensuring our clients are properly protected and not paying over the odds

 Estate Preservation - planning for inheritance tax and long term care costs

 Investment Advice - reviewing and servicing investing investments or planning new ones.

 Pension services - reviewing existing investments and creating new ones

We pledge to guard your professional reputation as vigilantly as we guard our own

Our success, like yours, is dependant on our professional reputation.  To protect this we have strict policies and processes in place to both serve our clients and protect their interests.

When Whitchurch IFA was founded we created a document detailing the core principles, policies and processes we would abide by and this was submitted to the FSA with our application for authorisation.  This document protects our clients and creates a template by which our professional and technical success can be judged by our regulator.  We invite you to examine it by

Data protection and IT security is a high priority and we retain high IT proficiency skills to ensure these areas are never compromised.  Our data protection and IT security policy can be found by clicking here.

The highest standards of independence, professionalism
and service for your clients

We maintain strict independence and will hold no obligation to any bank, building society, investment provider or life office.  We are not part of any group or network but are truly independent and directly authorised by the Financial Services Authority.  This combined with our low cost base make us a prime recommendation for professionals who must justify their choice of introduction to their clients and their regulating bodies.

We are interested only in long-term client relationships and will advise strictly in the best interests of our clients at all times. We follow a strict policy of NOT selling to clients; we maximise cross-recommendations by considering all areas of liability and opportunity on our clients' behalf, not by pushing products.

For the enhanced protection of our clients we have engaged a third party compliance-services firm who will provide a “second opinion” file-check prior to applications being written for ALL client advice, not just traditionally high risk areas. We provide our introducers with documentary evidence of our policies and principles, qualifications, authorisations and professional indemnity cover prior to accepting referrals. We also ask that our introducers provide us with the same or equivalent as appropriate.

Service into 2013 and beyond

In 2013 the minimum qualification requirements for ALL financial advisers in the United Kingdom will increase substantially as a result of the Financial Services Authority's Retail Distribution Review ("RDR") – we have already attained these qualification levels and above. Unfortunately there are no “grandfather rights” for this new ruling and advisers who do not attain these qualifications will not be able to continue trading. Our business is designed specifically to continue running in the post-RDR world.
