Opening up our website

We made a mistake.

When we originally set up our website, we decided to place our 45,000 words of free generic advice in the members-only section.  Our primary concern was spammers clogging up the comments.

With hindsight this was a mistake.  We want to make the information as accessible as possible.  Bearing that in mind we have decided to open up the members section to the general public.

We encourage you to leave comments.  To do so, you still need to become a member (but this is free).

The newly-accessible free section can be found under “Free resources for trustees” on the bottom left-hand side of the website.

We hope you find it useful.

Where’s the free advice?

In our last blog we pointed out that we only charge clients for scheme-specific advice. 

We believe that generic advice that varies from client to client is nonetheless valuable.  However, we have decided to give it away for free on our website.  This is a commercial decision rather than a moral one.  We believe that it is reasonable for other investment consultants to charge for such advice – they have development costs to cover.
