    Execution-only is not financial advice. The investor should contact the adviser, having done his/her own research and instruct the adviser to place the deal. If the adviser “suggests” or “points to” or “refers to” any investment or product then that is advice and not execution-only. That advice should be regulated. Do expat Brits really want execution-only deals or do they want advice?

      I had this phone call with Des Cooney of Axis Strategy in my office with Kim and an associate listening – with astonishment! Cooney was claiming that all they do is “help” their clients make their own decisions and effectively advise themselves. He seemed to be astonished that a firm would need a license to do that. He also did a lot of shouting and protested loudly that it was none of my business. But I think that if anyone puts information in the public domain that is likely to mislead the public, then that is EVERYBODY’s business. This is what gives financial services a bad name – especially in Europe and especially at Brexit time.
