Our Independence

There are two types of financial adviser in the UK marketplace; Restricted and Independent. Both will be suitably qualified and will be able to assist you in your financial planning, however the scope of the products and services that are recommended and utilised will be quite markedly different.

A restricted adviser will only be able to offer a limited number of products, generally provided by one, or a limited number of providers which may not be the most suitable, when compared to the rest of the market. An an Independant Financial Adviser (IFA) however, they will be able to explore the whole market to find the most suitable product and as there are no limitations on their scope, their advice could be seen as more impartial and unbiased.

At Armstrongs Wealth Planning, we have over the years been restricted and independant and as such, feel that we have experiences from both angles.

We ultimately made the decision to become an Independent advice firm, as we wanted to be in control of our investment strategy for our clients and be free from offering products to our clients that we deemed were not providing value for money. This ensures that we are committed to finding what we believe to be the right outcome for our client and allows our advice to remain impartial and unbiased throughout.

Please note, investment returns can vary, the capital and income generated cannot be guaranteed.

This notice cannot disclose all the risks associated with the products we make available to you. You should not invest in or deal in any financial product unless you understand its nature and the extent of your exposure to risk. You should also be satisfied that it is suitable for you in the light of your circumstances and financial position. Different investment products have varied levels of exposure to risks and to different combinations of risks.

Our disclaimers are not intended to be fully inclusive of all relevant risks; we would strongly encourage to you ensure that you have read all relevant literature, and that you are comfortable that you understand all of the associated risks relating to an investment, before you decide whether or not to purchase it. Should you be in any doubt as to the risks involved, or to the suitability of a particular investment, you should seek professional financial advice.

Please note that investment values can go down as well as up and past performance is no indication of future performance.
