What is an Independent Financial Advisor?

An Independent Financial Advisor (IFA) provides independent financial advice to clients. In an Independent Financial Advisory Firm, they rarely carry in-house products (products created internally).  Instead, the range of products and services are selected from a number of existing service providers.

These processes allow advisors to provide independent advisory.

Similar to Financial Advisors or Wealth Managers, Independent Financial Advisors provide financial advice to clients in financial planning, investment planning, insurance planning and other wealth management solutions.



The difference for Independent Financial Advisors is the range of products and services are selected and recommended only from 3rd party or external providers.  This concept allows Independent Financial Advisors to provide independent and possibly less bias financial advice to clients.

United Kingdom is first country to adopt the official term of “Independent Financial Adviser”.  In 1988, advisors are required to be either tied to a single provider or be an independent practitioner.  Independent practitioners are known as IFAs or Independent Financial Advisors.  This is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

What Independent Financial Advisors Say?

“ It is a wonderful career to be in: The learning journey, growing with clients, being there for their wedding, their first child, first property, their loved one who just passed away.  All the major events that I had been part of, I had a major role to play financially for them.  My responsibility grows with their life.  My income is always growing too, but it had never been a thought after I started my journey as an Independent Financial Advisor. “ Independent Financial Advisor
