Voice of the Adviser 2015 released on Monday



For the last five years we’ve interviewed hundreds of financial advisers to ask them about the state of the advice market, the economy, and their political leanings and, most importantly for us, their finger on the pulse of sustainable, responsible and ethical investment in the UK.


The report is released on Monday but here’s links to the headline results.

Economic confidence strong amongst financial advisers

The financial advice market remains strong

87% of financial advisers asked about ethical investment

Ecclesiastical, Friends Provident, Kames, Jupiter and Alliance Trust top adviser choice for SRI

The ‘advice gap’ a reality as minimum portfolio sizes double.
