What makes ValidPath different?

You can access a series of Factsheets here, which will - hopefully - give you a sense of what marks ValidPath out from the kinds of financial services Networks that you may be more familiar with.  Here, briefly, is a very quick overview of those qualities that we believe make the biggest difference for our Members:
 

1

ValidPath self-identify as Independent Financial Advisers.  We always have, and we always will - which means that our Members are not limited in their selection of solutions, and their clients are not shoe-horned into arrangements which are second-best, at best.

2

ValidPath have no conflicts of interest.  No skewing of independency by big-name shareholders; no sneaky deals done in smoke-filled rooms; no bribes from product-providers which we hope the FCA won't spot.

3

A clear, de-minimus IFA infrastructure with all external systems carefully sourced for our Members on the open-market, and charged either at cost, or subsidised to avoid any barriers to access.

4

No initial joining fee for new Members!

5

A proportionate, turnover-related charging structure (in line with the FCA's approach) which is reviewed annually to ensure that we charge no more than necessary.

6

An internal Central Investment Proposition which is (a) inexpensive, (b) efficient, (c) fully-documented and (d) reviewed annually.

7

An extraordinarily high level of interest in your success, plus a 'can-do' attitude towards supporting your business development.

8

A process of continual development aimed at supporting you in delivering only the best outcomes for your clients.
