Fees in an area of Zero Interest Rates

£1,720 smackers for 'advice' - that is 1.72% BEFORE you even make a penny on your £100,000. That is the sad reality in today's Private Banking business. And there is NO GUARANTEE that you will make any money - the fee is payable whether your portfolio has a positive or negative return. Nice money if you can get it! Ask for INDEPENDENT advice before signing on the dotted line!
