Welcome to IFA

In today’s evolving financial landscape, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has strict protocols to ensure clarity for customers about the different types of advice services on offer, including charges for these. We are regulated and authorised by the FCA.

Many financial advisers are restricted and can only offer solutions from selected providers. We, on the other hand, are free to create financial plans that are totally unconstrained by any obligations – other than to you, the client. We offer solutions that are drawn from the whole market.

Since IFA Financial Services (UK) Ltd was established in 1994 by Nick Self (Dip FA MRICS), we have always prided ourselves on our unique skill sets and qualifications that provide clients with trusted independent financial advice.

We look after a range of clients with different needs and objectives, many of whom are high net worth individuals, successful self-employed business men and women, company directors and semi-retires/retired clients.

Our office is centrally located in Bishop’s Stortford, being strategically placed with good rail, road and air transport close by.

Client Testimonials

  • IFA Financial Services have provided me with mortgage and pension advice over a number of years. They have consistently provided a highly professional and efficient service in an extremely friendly and approachable manner. Advice, whenever needed, is readily given and clearly explained. I feel that my financial affairs are in very safe hands and on this basis I would recommend then to anyone.

    Mr P.A, Hertfordshire
  • The staff were very friendly and helpful to ease us through this process. Thank you all very much for sorting out this for me and if I need any help in the future I know where to come.

    Mr W.T, Bishops Stortford
  • Allowing IFA to guide my husband and I with our finances is one of the best decisions I have made. I feel secure with arrangements for my pension and savings. You know they are genuinely interested in helping when they advise you to leaving certain savings where they are rather than them taking control.

    Mrs E.G, Hertfordshire
  • I had paid little attention to my pension arrangements during a working life where I ran several of my own companies and was both was self-employed and an employee for periods. Frankly I was suspicious of “financial advisers” during the bad old days of the 70s, 80s and 90s when they were nothing more than insurance salesman more motivated by commission payments than their clients’ well-being.

    Mr A.S, Essex
  • We were recommended to IFA by a friend as I was in need of advice about my pension arrangements. I am happy to say that the advice we received has proved very beneficial and although our circumstances have changed quite a few times since our first meeting in 2016 we have found IFA to be helpful in discussing our new needs and prompt in meeting our requirements.

    Mr G.S, Essex
