A recent survey shows that 69% of advisers who are or have been active in advising on defined benefits and potential transfers cite the complexity of FCA regulations as a major factor regarding whether to continue to provide advice in this area.1

We've designed and adapted our defined benefit (DB) support material to highlight the important areas to consider before deciding if a transfer may be suitable for your clients.

It’s just for information, and it’s up to you to make sure that your suitability assessment meets your regulatory requirements.
