Finance Matters is paid a single upfront commission (percentage of the loan facility or insurance premium), an ongoing (trail) commission (percentage of the loan facility or insurance premium), or a mix of both. Finance Matters may charge a one-off fee for work completed for clients that do not attract a broker payment from the lender. This charge, if applied, will be agreed in advance with you before any work is started.
