I was asked by a compliance guru at one of the insurers about Quotemonster, and in particular Quality Product Research, and how that relates to product selection, and whether you can rely on it as information from a third party as the Financial Advice Code requires.
You can rely on QPR to be a good assessment of differences between products, compare prices accurately, but it isn’t giving advice, only advisers do that, given their superior knowledge of the client. Research reports on products are there to help inform good advisers, not replace them.
Incidentally, in a related subject - Quotemonster is not a record-keeping system. It is a comparison system. Although we retain comparisons for your convenience, and so you can replicate similar comparisons, it is, obviously, not a CRM system.
Our comparison business is to help advisers.
