As an accountant, solicitor, trustee or deputy, you are likely to need to engage a financial adviser to meet your duty of care to your clients.
In the past, many accountancy and law firms allowed their fee earners to ‘do their own thing’ and refer on an informal, ad hoc basis. Today, most are moving to a more robust method of selecting professional financial advisers.
Solicitors, acting under the current Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) Code of Conduct, should act in their clients’ best interests and refer clients to a financial adviser. Under the ICAEW Code of ethics, accountants have a duty of care to their clients and should ensure that they are introduced to an ‘independent financial adviser, which is, by definition, unbiased and unrestricted’.
Comprehensive and holistic financial planning with an expert and experienced Fiduciary Financial Planner is significantly more likely to result in excellent client outcomes.
