SIFA's close connection with the legal profession and the Law Society over many years enables us to provide the inside track to financial advisers seeking to establish effective working relationships with solicitors.
The Legal Services Act of 2007 has provided the catalyst for the development of inter-disciplinary professional practice, and the Solicitors Regulation Authority is urging solicitors to take a holistic view of their clients' needs. This provides an exceptional opportunity for financial advisers to form business associations with solicitors, whether through arms-length referrals, joint ventures or Alternative Business Structures. SIFA provides unique expertise to assist firms to make the right choices, to navigate regulatory issues and to build lasting relationships to the mutual advantage of both parties.
Membership of SIFA Professional is subject to due diligence on the applicants to ensure their suitability for inclusion in the SIFA Directory of Professional Financial Advisers, which is endorsed by the Law Society.

An additional facility available to SIFA Professional members is the opportunity to offer their solicitor connections a half-day’s complimentary gap analysis consultation by Viv Williams of SIFA 360, to assist them in preparing for the multi-disciplinary professional services market of the future.
