Women & Money Cafe Podcast

Can I afford financial advice? What does it cost? Will I get ripped off? These are some of the questions that might be going through your mind if you are toying with the idea of approaching a financial adviser.

We get it! It’s confusing, opaque, and a bit of mystery.

In this episode Julie & Michelle are going to explain how financial advisers charge and why. And more importantly, what you can do make sure you pay the way you want to.


One of the big myths is that we only charge in percentages. It is one of the most common ways you will see advisers charge but it’s not the only way. And you can ask for something different.

Golden rule: know what you are paying for in £s and what that buys you. Then you can determine if that feels worth it to you.


We’ll cover the 3 potential triggers to pay a financial adviser:

  1. The advice
  2. Implementing the advice
  3. And looking after your money (aka ongoing service)

We’ll also share some tips on how to find a flat fee financial adviser; when it makes sense to pay a financial adviser an hourly rate; and how to limit the ongoing fee if you are paying one.

Julie did her best to explain how St James Place charges work as they are a little different. You can find them here and Julie’s advice fees are here.
