If you have £50,000 or more in savings and investments, a UK resident and aged 18 or over, you may be eligible for bank Premier Financial Advice Service. Our expert advisers offer holistic advice. What we mean by this is that we assess your needs across all of the following five areas:
Through in-depth personal assessment and sophisticated risk profiling software, your adviser will discuss your hopes and dreams, help you identify your risk tolerance and work with you to build a bespoke financial plan.
We have chosen to offer restricted advice. This means we don't recommend products from the whole of the market, but rather a limited range of products from a limited number of carefully selected companies, including bank. Your adviser will discuss the types of products and services we provide advice on, as well as those we don't , such as specific tax advice.
During your no obligation discussion your adviser will discuss your goals and circumstances and whether you might benefit from paying for our advice service. They will also explain our fees so you can be sure of the costs involved.Find out more

For some investments this can also happen as a result of exchange rate fluctuations as shares and funds may have an exposure to overseas markets. Most investments should be considered as a medium to long-term commitment, meaning you should be prepared to hold them for at least five years
