Every year, UK investors see millions of pounds siphoned off from their ISAs, pensions, and investments in the form of financial adviser fees. The good news is that these fees might be eligible for a refund.

In many instances, advisers fail to deliver on their promises, leaving clients paying hefty fees for minimal or no service at all. Commission-based advisers, in particular, may not have provided the most suitable advice.

Since the regulatory changes in 2012, most investments and pensions include built-in adviser charges, deducted periodically to cover agreed-upon ongoing services.

When advisers fall short of fulfilling these service commitments, they violate their contractual terms, potentially warranting compensation for you.

Concerning pensions, you may have been advised to switch, consolidate, or transfer your pension funds, actions that often result in unnecessary fees deducted from your pension.

Consolidation, while incentivized due to commission, may not always be the optimal choice. Similarly, moving from a final salary pension scheme might not align with your best interests.

Moreover, advice to terminate one policy in favor of another or suggestions that lead to unexpected tax liabilities could also indicate flawed guidance.
