In this article the author discusses the impact of consultancy charging on corporate pension providers in Great Britain. He says that providers should talk to their colleagues to address the complexity of issues surrounding consultancy charging. He emphasizes that when providers accommodate charges from two potential advisers, the levels of information should be equalised to both organisations. He stresses that delivering such service is about a matter of revenue protection.
