In this article, the author reflects on financial advisers charging under group personal pensions (GPPs) in Great Britain. He points out that the cost of advice relating to employee benefits provision has been erroneously provided through commission. Moreover, he relates that if independent financial advisers (IFAs) accurately record the time they spent on pension schemes, they would discover the unprofitability in the absence of a fixed fee for service.
