RDR new rules in effect

by Sable International | Mar 26, 2013
  • The new rules governing how financial advisers charge for their services are in effect, and have been since the beginning of the year. The changes form part of the Retail Distribution Review (RDR) - introduced by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) - as part of their efforts to increase transparency and fairness, when it comes to investment fees.

    Advisers are now required to make an agreement with each of their clients about their financial advice fees upfront, and will no longer be able to charge commissions.

    With this initiative, the FSA intends to ensure that

    • Consumers are offered a transparent and fair charging system for the advice they receive;

    • that they are clear about the service they receive; and

    • that they receive advice from highly respected professionals.

    Sable Wealth welcomes the move. We are pleased that the FSA is finally holding the whole industry to the same standards that we value; our qualifications already exceed the level required by the FSA under the new RDR initiative.

    If you have any questions concerning the new rules, please don’t hesitate to contact us at or by calling 084 5345 1633.
