Truly Independent always puts the interests of our clients first. Charging a fee means paying us for looking after our clients and giving tailored and appropriate independent advice.


As a new client engages with us for the first time, we offer an initial consultation at our expense. That means you can contact, call, or meet with us to discuss without obligation.

At the end of that consultation, we will outline a proposed action plan and estimate the cost.


This charge is based on a percentage of the amount you invest.

During consultation, your independent financial adviser will explain our full terms and conditions. Should you wish to proceed with a suggested recommendation, your adviser will explain the process, timescale, and our charges.

In general, you pay for our services based on fees for investments and pensions, commission for insurance, and a combination for mortgages.

To ensure we treat our clients fairly and transparently, all our advisers charge the same fees:

We charge 3% of first £100,000 of investment, 2% for the next £100,000 and 1% for anything above £200,000. This will be maximised at £10,000.

There is a minimum ‘engagement’ fee of £500 for each new piece of advice, which applies within your first 12 months of engagement with Truly Independent Ltd.
