Our Costs

We have a number of ways in which we can work and we employ a flexible charging structure to enable us to adapt to all client circumstances. The relevant model will depend very much on the nature of the advice given and we will discuss with you the most appropriate charging method as part of the discovery process:

Commission: In some cases we earn a commission from a product provider when we set up a policy. In this case there would be no direct payment from you to EBG International, all would be taken care of within the product charges of the policy.

% Initial Fee: We agree a % of capital invested as the fee for setting up a policy. This usually applies to investment of a fixed sum of money and the % would reduce on a sliding basis as the amount invested increases.

Fixed Fee: In this case we would agree a fee with you that reflects the expected work to be undertaken. This typically applies to clients who wish to concentrate on financial planning only or who wish to engage with us on a more transactional basis.

It is important to note that the discovery process does not carry any charge. This is an essential step that allows us to establish which of the 3 models is most appropriate to your personal situation and needs. Our regulation requires us to be clear and transparent on all charges. They will be clearly stipulated and agreed with you before proceeding with any recommendations.

What we expect from you

Openness

The plan we design for you is only as accurate as the information you provide to us. We ask that the information you share with us is complete where possible and that you are honest with us and yourselves when taking part in the planning process.

Commitment

We want you to be successful and we want your Financial Life Plan to ensure that you meet all of your life goals. Building wealth is a long-term process and the biggest influence on success or failure is your own financial behaviour. We will ensure that we do our part, putting the right structures in place, sharing the burden of decision making and keeping you on track along the way. That said, the only way we can truly support you through all life’s ups and downs is if you are as committed as we are to achieving your goals.
