Twitter tattle: What the finance world is tweeting about

Top tweets from the week and what the adviser community has been debating and discussing

As pupils countrywide picked up their GCSE results, parents were full of praise, the press were not impressed and there was even an admission or two about adviser results:

@chislehurst

To the 640,000 sixteen-year-olds who have just had their GCSE results tampered with by Michael Gove: use your votes wisely in 2015.

‏@martinbamford

My GCSE results from 16 years ago today: 3 Bs, 5 Cs, 1 E (in German) #historicaltweet

@PensionsMorley

GCSE results out today. Almost half pupils FAILED maths.

‏@MilesThurston

She did good. 7 B’s & 1 C in this GCSE household. Ya :-) #gcse

@martin_dodd

Collecting my daughters GCSE results this morning. Slightly worried but optimistic at the same time #GCSEresultstoday

Earlier in the week, the FSA announced its position about UCIS funds and advisers said: “We told you so.”

@IFABlogger

Remember when mummy told you not to take sweeties from strange men? Same applies with UCIS investments #stayaway #runamile #donteverbuyone

@malcolmsteel

The FSA announcement today banning UCIS promotion to retail clients is great news. #WellDoneFSA

‏@GregKingston

Wonder how many SIPP providers will be scrabbling around for new business once the UCIS well dries up #justsaying

And elsewhere free banking and pensions were stirring debate

‏@wishartwealth

When product providers offer 0.3% per annum off their charges is it such a special deal - or an admission they were overcharging before?

@RichEdney

Steve Webb, the #pensions Minister, has admitted that the current state #pension system is “so complex it would baffle Einstein”
