The article reports on the call of Aegon NV to merge the proposed simplified advice streams and basic advice in Great Britain. Peter Williams, head of industry development, states that it was interesting that the Financial Service Authority (FSA) dismissed the basic advice in the November 2008's feedback statement. Williams adds that the Treasury might influence the addition of basic advice after the White Paper highlights the reformation of financial market for the benefit of the consumers.
