FIIG Securities has launched its new Adviser Services Division which it says will offer dedicated products, services, research and consultation.
“We see overseas investors having larger allocations to fixed income, up to 25% for pre-retirees, and the advisers we talk to understand the importance of these levels of allocations,” FIIG head of intermediary sales Grant McCorquodale said.
“FIIG Adviser Services is being established to help advisers as they rethink their clients’ fixed income, and we are here to assist with education, marketing insights and a range of products and services which are supported with comprehensive adviser reporting and administration.”
McCorquodale said the service would help advisers more easily integrate fixed income products into their practices.
“We provide advisers the means to administer and report on client investments in a way that delivers genuine practice efficiency and time savings but, crucially, we offer this within the frame of direct ownership of true defensive assets. This means that timely, predictable and controlled investment income is waiting for clients via what is essentially, for advisers, a plug-in service.”
A fixed income broker has expanded its business to exclusively service financial advisers.
