SIFA Trusted Advisor
North Laine Financial Management is a recognised accredited member of SIFA, Solicitors Independent Financial Advice.
SIFA is an initiative endorsed by The Law Society.
SIFA was established in 1992 to encourage and support involvement by solicitors in financial services work. SIFA was a founder member of the Law Society’s Financial and Investment Business Working Party and is recognised by the FSA as the trade body for solicitor financial advisers.
The Legal Services Act of 2007 went a step further and encouraged a new era of professional advice in which the dividing lines between the legal, accounting and financial planning disciplines have been broken down and reconfigured business entities have emerged which are focused on identified client needs. SIFA’s revised objective, therefore, is to support and assist interaction between solicitors, accountants and financial advisers in whatever form this may take.
