We want to make it straightforward and simple to engage with ibd advisers:
- The first step is to create a brief for a prospective adviser, whether it is a one-off project or a longer-term relationship that is required.
- Via ibd head office, make contact with an individual or number of prospective advisors with whom you’d like to open discussions.
The timeline for creating a shortlist and taking a decision is dependent on your own company processes. You may want to invite an adviser to your offices so they can get a feel for your business and meet any additional members of our management team.
