One way to search for a regulated, qualified adviser is through the website Unbiased.co.uk, which has thousands of advisers listed on its site. You put in your postcode and it will come up with advisers in your area. However, a telephone based adviser may work out more cost effective. You can also search based on which area you need advice on.


The site VouchedFor.co.uk also lists financial advisers, and you can read reviews and ratings by existing clients. The Institute of Financial Planning lists certified financial planners and accredited firms at Financialplanning.org.uk

Recommendations from friends can also be a good way to find an adviser. You can check if an adviser is authorised to give advice on the Financial Conduct Authority Register at http://www.fca.org.uk/register/

First class service. Helped me through the process from start to finish. Egle and Francis were very professional and talked me though all my options. Once the policies were set up, the after care after was also first class. Highly recommend. 5 stars all day long.

Sam Carr provided a professional but enthusiastic service and helped make the whole process very straight forward. Goodness knows I have been through enough application forms recently. My insurance product was never going to be easy to find and I had been rejected on a number of other occasions through others ironically due to well managed common health conditions. I identified Drewberry in a last and disappointing trawl on th web to find someone that actually wanted to take on a difficult case like me. Some brokers wouldn't even consider me. When we applied for my first choice product Sam wasn't at all deterred by the long wait for my GP report or the final rejection that came back from the insurer, sadly I have become used to it. Within a day he had lined up the second choice and to my surprise he had hit the nail on the head and introduced me to the correct insurer and terms for my needs whilst nogotiating an excellent premium. I am extremely satisfied with what Sam has achieved for me and I would have no hesitation in recommending either him or Drewberry to friends, family and and business contacts. In the future, Drewberry will be my first point of contact. Many thanks!
