In this article, the author discusses the impact of the retail distribution review (RDR) on independent financial advisers (IFAs) in Great Britain. The author argues that RDR failed to acknowledge that the majority of the public will not pay fees for financial advice since they cannot afford to. He says that IFAs are not deserving to be put out of business by the Financial Services Authority (FSA).
