Who provides advice?

What does the service cost?

The initial answer given is entirely free. Many of the solutions will also be free. There are certain types of lengthy and complicated advice situations where you may be asked to agree some remuneration for the service but you will always be made fully aware of this before any such advice process begins.

Why use a mutual company for financial products?

A mutual company seeks to always put its members interests first. It does not have shareholders who in many other businesses, such as banks, are sometimes put before the customer.

Is there anything else I should know?
