    But that's the odd thing - people don't feel secure in their jobs, but
    they're still borrowing, and still spending.

  7. *Ding* on all counts, except the unemployed bit. We were being urged to
    go into endowments etc and I simply said that a mortgage was a debt and
    it had to be paid off. Dresing it up with endowments made no difference
    except added expense.

    Now that's not quite correct then, is it? You've at least deprived a
    deserving Financial Adviser of the far bigger commision he would've
    netted for the enduhments. Well done, sir.

    8 months premium, on a 25 year policy, it used to be. (1988)

    Both of the contracts before this one were in London.
    I've not had to do that. Rates haven't gone up (at all) but they
    haven't dropped either.

    Oh yes they have. Try w^Hbanking. Far fewer jobs, hardly any contracts
    and most of them with rates that are *way* lower compared to 2-3 years
    ago.

    Sorry - I'm not disagreeing with you generally - I was saying that MY
    rates haven't dropped in the last couple of years.

    No ethical issues in selling savings products.

    Selling savings products to people who don't need/can't afford them is
    different.

    I sold myself three endowments. In times of Stock Market Growth,
    they're wonderful animals. Of course, when times are less wonderful,
    everyone shouts "foul", led by the Daily Mail, in all likelihood.

    That, or choosing the most appropriate product for the customer based
    on the commision you get...
    As savings products the might well be OK because of their link to the
    stock markets, but I'm still unconvinced that they are an appropriate
    mortgage repayment vehicle. As we currently see...

    OK :)

    I suppose my point was that although the sector is generally fucked,
    there is work out there, it's just a matter of finding it, and (at the
    moment) it's handy not to be too much of a specialist - us generalists
    are getting by...

  18. It just got corrupted by several thousand equally corrupt financial
    advisers stitching their customers up, did it?

    Well, given that I work in financial services with IFAs on regular
    basis, I couldn't possibly comment....
