How to Avoid Financial Mis-Selling?

For the past 10 years, we’ve been on the frontline, striving to reclaim money on behalf of those who have been mis-sold financial products. Over this time we’ve dealt with thousands of cases; so we understand better than anyone what mis-selling looks like. Unfortunately it appears to be a practice that’s set to continue, which is why we’ve created a handy 4 step checklist to help you avoid being mis-sold to.

4 steps to help you avoid being mis-sold to:

1. Make a list of your requirements
Think about what you want to achieve with your money; a nest egg for your retirement plans, money for a rainy day, to pay off your mortgage or for your children's future? Having an idea of your needs, how much you hope to gain, and when, is critical to getting a financial product that's right for you and your needs.

2. Do some research
If you were buying a new car, you'd do some research to find out which car meets your needs and shop around for the best deal available. Well financial products, like cars, are one of life's big purchases so it pays to do some research and make some comparisons to ensure you're getting something right for you.

3. Understand the fees
It might sound obvious, but it's important to understand how much you're getting charged, and what you're getting charged for. Unless you know this, it's extremely hard to know whether you're getting a fair deal or not.

4. Check the small print
It may be boring, but make sure you don't get caught out. Sometimes there may be hidden clauses, extra fees or other surprises buried within the small print, so it's well worth taking some time to give it a read though.
