    IFA Fees 7th Jul 17 at 11:30 AM
    How are IFA fees normally paid? ie directly by the client or taken from the investment income. Do clients receive a statement of fees ? Thanks.

    Could be either. Depends on what you agree with the IFA, for example it is much more tax efficient to pay for fees out of a pension fund rather than direct for pension advice as you have received tax relief on it.

    The IFA should agree the fee with you and agree a payment method before making any recommendations.

    Quite flexible though and something to discuss with your adviser at the initial phase of your relationship with them.

    Thanks. There is no pension involved but an investment fund. A fee of .5 was agreed which is taken from investments so no provision for the investor to check how much this figure is. There has not been a statement of fees given which I would have thought necessary.
