This week we are continuing to promote our Value of Advice campaign to consumers, with the help of some fantastic coverage in the Mail Online and Money Observer.
With the gap between advised and non-advised consumers evident, we've teamed up with AXA Life Invest and created an infographic which highlights to consumers just how much much better off they could be in retirement with the help of financial advice - why not share this with potential clients or share on your website? You can view the Mind the Advice Gap infographic here.
Simon Smallcombe, UK managing director of AXA Life Invest, comments "advisers can significantly boost the level of retirement income UK savers receive. As with most things in life, planning and preparation delivers better results". Read more of this article here.

Santander Asset Management developed a proposition designed to help meet the needs of IFAs and their clients following the increasing focus on risk categorisation. The result was the Santander Atlas portfolios offering a choice of multi-asset funds designed to help a wide range of investors' needs through high-quality and transparent investments.
These five risk-targeted, actively managed, unfettered funds offer highly competitive fees, plus a capped ongoing charge fee (0.99%). The range is supported by a full suite of clear client focused communications, as well as possible 'outcomes' for each portfolio provided by Moody's. The proposition has already received independent recognition from established research companies and was awarded the highest ratings from Defaqto, RSM and Square Mile. During this webinar Toby Vaughan, Head of Fund Management, and manager of the Santander Atlas Portfolios, will provide an update on process, positioning, performance and market outlook.
