IF says that when the responses are collated, it will be able to pinpoint the top problems facing intermediaries.
Jennifer Blackwood, spokeswoman for IF, says: “We had a voting system at the roadshows designed to ask brokers how they thought service could be improved. We hope this will produce some useful results, especially coming up to regulation.
I'm hoping the analysis will either indicate definitive trends across the UK or even highlight geographic variations, which could be interesting.”
Brokers were asked four questions including their chosen route through regulation and if they believe regulation will be good for business.
They were also asked what the most important factor was in their decision to place business with a certain lender: products, commission, service or brand strength.
Another question asked what the biggest problem facing their business was – regulation, new business, cashflow or technology.
The final roadshow was held last Friday and the results of the survey should be ready for publication later this month. Over 1,000 advisers attended the roadshows between September 3 and 24.
