Guide helps advisers start their own business

Burns-Anderson have published A Guide to Starting Your Own Business.

The guide is aimed at financial, mortgage and general Insurance advisers who wish to start up their own firm.

Chief executive Mike Hughes says Many advisers working for larger firms, including tied agents feel ready to break out on their own but are nervous about taking the first step.

“The guide is written in such a way as to provide encouragement and support to show that it is easier than some people think. However, we also recognise that it can be a bit frightening to make the first step to being your own boss. We have written the guide in a straightforward way, without getting into too much detail, so that the most important decisions can be made first.

The guide complements their earlier publication A Guide to Structuring Your Business, which deals with authorisation, status and permissions
