Retail Distribution Review: What it means for you
Barclays Investments do not provide financial advice. If you are unsure if an investment is right for you, please seek independent financial advice.
The Retail Distribution Review (RDR) is a framework of requirements and regulations launched by the Financial Services Authority that aims to increase consumer confidence by raising professional standards for those receiving investment advice and the levels of transparency offered to customers looking to buy financial products or services.
The RDR aims to ensure...
- clearer service – a better understanding of the service consumers should receive
- clearer costs – increased clarity over the cost of investment advice
- higher standards – greater confidence that advisers are suitably qualified
These changes to the way investors receive and pay for investment advice came into effect on the 31 December 2012 and apply to all advisers in the UK retail investment market. For further details, please view the Guide to RDR 150 KB
