Linking you to an IFA
In our view the best way to buy a pension is by using an IFA.
The new Stakeholder pension has arguably made the need to consult an IFA less relevant than previously – when pensions usually had high charges and lacked flexibility. However we would suggest that an IFA who specialises in pensions is always worth consulting before taking the plunge.
The best way to find one is by a word of mouth recommendation. If you don’t have this, we can link you directly with a reputable IFA.
