How we are Remunerated


If we charge a fee or we get a commission from the provider, we will tell you how much that fee or commission will be before you complete an investment, but you may ask for this information earlier. If you choose not to proceed with our recommendation, we would make no charge.


Please address all questions through the contact form below. Only the authorised brokers themselves can offer support through personal contact. We cannot offer phone assistance before your enquiry is allocated to an annuities consultant. You will receive a call-back from your specialist as soon as possible.
