Getting a Second Opinion

I recently looked at correspondence received from readers of ‘Financial Pages in Spain’ and can tell you the majority are summarised as;

Can you give me a Second Opinion?

For QROPS, QNUPS, UK Pensions, Investments and tax issues they are unhappy with the advice they have been given and send me examples.

Rather than guesswork people also ask me to recommend Accountants, Lawyers, Surveyors, tax advisers and other professionals. Any professional advice can be sought from ‘Financial Pages in Spain

Some of the things people have said to me:

  • ‘ It  looked like a mass produced report with just my name and personal details changed’

  • ‘ They wanted an up front fee even to talk to me, funny they never mention that in their adverts’

  • ‘ I was convinced the advice was wrong’ (by the way – it was!)

But they trust ‘Financial Pages in Spain’ and I am receiving comments which show a great deal of respect.

I’ll try to help. Email me

Can you help me to help you?

  • Please send me both good and bad examples of reports you have received, from financial advisers, I’ll respect your privacy

  • Tell me the names of Advisers who refuse to disclose commissions

  • If the fees, charges and commissions are hidden in a report and not openly disclosed, please send examples

This sort of information will help everyone and help eradicate some of the greedy practices.

I may not have intended it when I started out but it seems that Financial Pages in Spain is becoming the respected second opinion.
