The article reports on the impact of the retail distribution review (RDR) on advisers in Great Britain. Transact says that in the wake of RDR, advisers who will struggle with higher qualifications may become client introducers.

Transact head of marketing Malcolm Murray believes that to become an introducer will be the most popular option.
