The MAP Franchise is an IFA Business for Financial Advisers. The MAP Head Office will deal with the majority of your admin work to let you focus on seeing clients and getting new business. They will also provide you with the tools to do a first class job for your clients, which is the only way to achieve success.
Money Advice & Planning Ltd (MAP) are the first and only firm of IFA’s to be franchised. They have designed the MAP Franchise, so that advisers can spend more time in front of customers, quite simply because that is the only place where they will earn money.
The back office systems that MAP have developed deal with the bulk of the time consuming paperwork – and so free advisers up to see more people.
The aim is to become a National firm of IFA’s with presence in all major towns in the UK – and you can be a part of that with your own IFA Business.
MAP has developed a system for placing investments (and pensions) which is very simplistic, and works well for clients. Quote from a client – “what you do with investments is so simple – why doesn’t everyone do it that way”. When you can deliver a good performance to clients, that is half the battle – in their opinion. This lets the client build up TRUST in you, and that is what financial services is based on.
Marketing Your IFA Business:
MAP's new marketing strategy means that they will do marketing for you, which they pay for up front, and then you will only pay for it out of sales made – and if you don’t make any sales then you pay nothing. Marketing actions are spread over mail, newspapers and web.
The initial fee is only £5,000 and for that MAP will give you an exclusive area, free pages on their website, access to all of their systems and help with marketing. Bear in mind that they ONLY succeed if you do – so they have every incentive to make things happen for you. MAP work on a fee/commission split starting at 60/40 and going to 75/25. No hidden charges.
In summary, the MAP Franchise, can get you started in financial services and provide you with all the backup tools to do a first class job – and this is the only way to get success. If you don’t look after your clients somebody else might – and the MAP ethos explains why they keep 98% of their clients.
