Tailored expertise to help you make more of your money

We believe financial advice should be available to people from all walks of life. That’s why there’s no cost to you for receiving personalised financial advice from a friendly Newcastle Financial Adviser.  

You’ll only be charged if you decide to implement the advice – and you can select the follow-up services that suit you best. You can choose from different ways to cover your fees meaning your ongoing support, costs and how you pay them are the right fit for you. 


Meet your friendly financial adviser to discuss your financial situation and goals. Your adviser will outline the services available, explain how they can help and the next steps. Then you decide if you want to progress.


Your dedicated financial adviser will complete extensive research to create your personalised financial plan. They will present you with a range of options to help meet your needs and achieve your ambitions.

You decide

Working together with your adviser, you agree on an option that suits your circumstances, fulfils your requirements and meets your aims and aspirations. There’s no fee if you choose to walk away at this point.

Only pay if you implement the advice

If you want to go ahead with the initial advice, your adviser will agree the recommendations and explain the costs involved. It’s important to regularly review these arrangements. So, you’ll also need to decide on the level of ongoing financial advice service you receive in future.

Choose the ongoing service that’s right for you

It’s vital you review your financial plan and the performance of your products to make sure they continue to meet your changing needs and deliver the outcomes you want. You’re in complete control of whether you choose to do this and how often, with three options to choose from.

How you can choose to pay

Whether you decide to pay a percentage of the amount you invest or an hourly rate (see Menu of fees and charges), you can pay for your fees either by:  

  1. Deducting them from the amount you invest in the recommended product – this means the money you invest will be reduced by your fee amount.
  2. Paying them directly to Openwork Ltd. (you can learn more about Openwork on our 'Who are Openwork?' page) – this means you’ll pay a fee in addition to the money you invest (so your investment will not be reduced by the fee amount).
