It is common to find financial advisers who state they are specialists at everything. The likelihood is that they have a good level of knowledge about most things but very little in depth knowledge around specialist subjects such as pension transfers or inheritance tax.
In the most part these types of advisers will be able to help most people whose financial affairs are not too complicated. But when the need arises for something more complicated then its best to find an IFA who has the relevant experience and knowledge to help.
You could use the internet to search for IFAs or ask family and work colleagues for recommendations. Once you are in contact with an IFA don’t be shy, ask them direct questions about how familiar they are with what you want.
You should feel happy that they recognise your needs quickly and are confident about how to resolve them.
Providing complex financial advice can take time so allow your independent financial adviser to do their job. Most will be able to give you an idea of how long the process will take and the costs involved. Expert financial advice is rarely free and these advisers are professionals in their field.
