Banks and building societies
For many people this will be their first stop for advice. Banks and building societies now offer a wide range of financial services and are keen to gain your business. However, virtually none of them offer independent financial advice which means they will be looking to sell you their own products, even though there may be better ones available on the market.
TIP: It makes good sense to get a second opinion from an independent adviser before acting upon any financial advice your bank or building society offers you.
