ASK FOR A WRITTEN PLAN

Legally your plan must include important documents. Check that you have been given:

  • a statement of advice (SOA) that sets out what your adviser is recommending and why it is suitable.

At this point, some advisers will also give you a 'terms of engagement' that sets out the exact services they will supply and the fees and charges you will pay. And always file any paperwork away carefully - you'll never know when it could come in handy.
