We offer a non-advisory service which provides customers with information to assist them in selecting products they feel are most appropriate for their needs. Nothing in the www.fairloans.co.uk website shall be deemed to constitute advice or a recommendation to purchase a particular product or service. If you are in any doubt as to the suitability of the product or service we suggest that you seek independent financial advice. When you use our service we will take this as acceptance and agreement of our terms, and you will be bound by them. We will not provide you with personal financial advice and therefore do not have a duty to ensure suitability. This means that you will not be entitled to compensation from us, if it is established that the service or product you select is not suitable. It is your responsibility to take into account your circumstances and objectives and make your own judgement as to suitability.
Fair Investment Company Limited effectively acts as an “introducer” and will introduce you to other companies who provide financial products and/or services.

The www.fairloans.co.uk website provides you with the opportunity of researching and selecting loan products over the Internet.
