Please ensure that you read this agreement carefully because it contains important information that you need to be aware of, such as explaining the services being offered to you and how you will pay for them.

ABOUT OUR SERVICE 

1. Our Service

We offer the following service (“Service”):

Non-advised lifetime annuity comparison

A lifetime annuity is a financial product that gives you a guaranteed income for life in exchange for all or some of your pension savings.

When you use this service, we’ll ask some questions to get you the best price and to narrow down the selection of lifetime annuities. We’ll explain the options that are available to you, so you can tailor the annuities to meet your needs. You’ll receive a list of suitable products and the incomes payable before choosing the one you’d like to buy. You won’t receive advice or a recommendation from us when you use this service and you are responsible for ensuring that a lifetime annuity is suitable for your needs.

With this service you’re responsible for deciding how your annuity will be set up. For example, an annual increase to keep up with inflation or whether payments continue after your death.  Please contact us if you think you might need financial advice as we may be able to help you.

Our service compares lifetime annuities from the following companies: Aviva, Canada Life, Hodge Lifetime, Legal & General, Just, Retirement Advantage, and Scottish Widows.  These companies are commonly referred to as the whole of the “Open Market” for annuities. We do not investigate any options that you may have directly with your exiting pension company. 

2. Who we are 

At HUB Financial Solutions Limited, we’re dedicated to finding the right financial products for anyone approaching or in retirement, whether you’re 55 or 105. We understand that everyone is different. That’s why we take the time to get to know what you want to achieve, and what support you’re ideally looking for.

We’ll use the words “we”, “us”, or “our” in this document instead of our full company name, HUB Financial Solutions Limited.

We recently changed our name from Just Retirement Solutions Limited to HUB Financial Solutions Limited. 

HUB Financial Solutions Limited’s parent company is Just Retirement (Holdings) Limited, a UK registered company. Just Retirement (Holdings) Limited also owns Just Retirement Limited, one of the lifetime annuity product providers available to us. These companies form part of the Just Group Plc.

3. Who regulates us

Financial markets need to be honest, fair and effective so you get a fair deal. The Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”) is the independent watchdog for financial services. It aims to make markets work well – for individuals, for business, large and small, and for the economy as a whole. It does this by regulating more than 56,000 businesses.

HUB Financial Solutions Limited is authorised and regulated by the FCA. Our FCA Register number is 455713. Our registration allows us to provide advice or guidance on financial products to customers in or approaching retirement.

You can check this on the FCA’s Register by visiting the FCA’s website www.fca.gov.uk/register/ or by contacting the FCA on 0800 111 6768.

4. Are we covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)?

Yes, we are covered by the FSCS. You may be entitled to compensation from the scheme if we cannot meet our obligations. This depends on the type of business and the circumstances of the claim.

If the claim involves mis-selling of long terms insurance, such as a lifetime annuity, the FSCS deal with this under its investment protection limits. If you have lost money as a result of any mis-selling and the firm that gave you the advice is unable to pay your claim, then the FSCS protects the claim up to £50,000.

Visit www.fscs.org.uk for more information about the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

5. What to do if you have a complaint

If you wish to register a complaint, please contact us:

  • in writing: HUB Financial Solutions Limited, Vale House, Roebuck Close, Bancroft Road, Reigate, Surrey RH2 7RU
  • by phone 0800 015 0993
  • by email qatjrl@wearejust.co.uk
  • by fax 01737 227 193

If you cannot settle your complaint with us, you may be entitled to refer it to the Financial Ombudsman Service at:www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/

 

FEES PAYABLE FOR OUR SERVICE

If you buy a lifetime annuity, we will normally receive commission on the sale from the product provider. Although you pay nothing up front, that doesn’t mean our Service is free.

You pay us indirectly through product charges. Product charges pay for the product provider’s own costs and any commission.

These charges reduce the amount left for purchase of a lifetime annuity. If you buy direct, the product charges could be the same as when buying through a financial intermediary, such as ourselves, or they could be higher or lower.

We’ll tell you how much the commission will be paid before you complete your purchase, but you can ask for this information earlier.
