Financial Advisers working in partnership with Blackfinch: Getting set up for success

Blackfinch is proud to be a champion of financial advisers, and for over a decade has been providing tax-efficient investments and globally diversified wealth management solutions to advisers all around the UK.

Sometimes, when we meet new advisers, they ask us what permissions they will need in order to introduce our investment solutions to their clients. This typically comes up when firms are expanding their service offering into a new area, or when new joiners come on board.

There are 3 areas an adviser will need authorisation for as outlined in Perg 2.7 of the FCA handbook:

  1. Advising on investments (except on Pension transfers and Pension Opt Outs),
  2. Arranging (bringing about) deals in investments and
  3. Making arrangements with a view to transactions in investments.

The customer type should include Professional and Retail (investment).

For tax products the investment type must include Shares, and for the Blackfinch multi-asset investments the investment type must be Units.

If your firm is growing, or changing your service offering to clients and you’re interested in working with Blackfinch then why not take a look at our full range of investments which can be found here: https://blackfinch.com/literature

We have a team of Business Development Managers based all around the UK who will be happy to visit your offices, explain our products and even deliver training sessions for your team. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if we can help, we hope to work with you soon.
