With over a quarter of a century's worth of experience, our approach is focused on ensuring clients get the financial advice they need. We do this through a nationwide network of hundreds of highly qualified and trained financial advisers and mortgage brokers who are authorised to act as our appointed representatives to give quality financial advice.
As one of the UK's largest adviser support groups, and over 25 years' worth of experience to call upon, we're about as robust as it gets. We have £28m net assets, and our major shareholders are well known high street names - Aviva, Friends Life (both owned by the Aviva Group), Standard Life and Aegon. Plus, we have a team of over 260 people that are mainly based at our Head Office in Leeds, supporting our advisers.
Through our core TenetConnect and TenetLime businesses, all of our advisers receive ongoing training and guidance from us to ensure the advice they give is both fair and suitable for our clients' needs, taking account of market developments, product launches, and the requirements of our regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority.
We get good feedback from clients who get advice from our advisers. In fact, through our programme of post-advice questionnaires, 98% of clients state that they would recommend us to a friend or relative*.
*Correct as of July 2016 and based on surveys completed by clients who have had advice since October 2013.
Of 1,406 clients who answered 'how likely are you to recommend us to a friend or colleague?', 98% said either 'very likely' or 'somewhat likely'.
“Neil went above and beyond to help us get the right mortgage. Very pleased with the advice and support
“My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and if Phil hadn't have contacted us about our insurance we would still be paying a mortgage. Will always recommend him
“David was excellent. Friendly, knowledgable and professional. He kept in contact so I always knew the up-to-date position. Would definitely recommend him
“Jason provides an excellent service. I would, and do, recommend him highly
“First class service from a first class guy. We would not hesitate to recommend Stephen and his services to friends and family, knowing that they would be advised correctly and professionally
“It was a huge burden taken off my shoulders at a time where otherwise I would have been lost
Many, but not all areas of financial advice are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The FCA aims to make sure that financial markets work well so that consumers get both fair and suitable advice for individual needs.
An appointed representative is a firm or an individual that represents a 'principal' firm that is fully authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. They effectively act as an 'agent' for the principal firm. The principal firm takes regulatory responsibility for the appointed representative, and must ensure it meets FCA requirements. In this case, Tenet is the principal. Many advisers begin their career as appointed representatives (AR) within a network. The network takes care of compliance and other requirements, while the advisers take care of their clients.
But some choose to be directly authorised by the FCA themselves and to control their own business as they see fit and manage their own relationship with the FCA.
If your adviser is an appointed representative of TenetConnect Ltd, TenetConnect Services Ltd or TenetLime Ltd, we provide them with regulatory, technical, training and business development support to help them meet the stringent and comprehensive requirements of the Financial Conduct Authority.
