Don't work for them, the role is nothing like the recruiters and trainers have you believe, they are nothing more than glamourised time share salesmen who care for no one.I worked for them in Asia following a weeks training in London, they told me i would have a coordinator with a diary full of appointments but when i arrived there was nobody there and all the mangers said was go out and find your own way.

This apears to be the norm in most devere offices, sink or swim attitude and throwing more and more mud at the wall hoping some of it will stick.Don't buy from them they have the worst reputation in the industry for client service only caring about the commisions they make.

Had an Experience with Devere Group?

Get a life people.There is not much point in carrying on talking about IFAs.

The real point is, what kind of people want an unqualified and an unregulated service which will be dealing with your MONEY, very likely will provide you with an advise that even a monkey could reach too? Only *** people! The same goes for those who work for this kind of company. Nobody needs a IFA.

If you want to invest your money? Do your homework and find a top bank or financial institution and they will help you.

Bear this in mind - these organization will have QUALIFIED advisers.So if you put your money through a IFA and get a bad service and poor return - don´t complaint because you are the only one to blame!!

As a very recent Area Manager for this shithole of a company which I unfortunately had the displeasure to work for, I can clearly say that many deVere clients and ex-clients in Brazil didn´t get any service at all for years, lost most of their money and the older clients who had been introduced through Britex (which Nigel Green said it is a totally different company...legally maybe but he was a director for Britex...conveniently left to start deVere...then Britex went bankrupted...) those clients lost tons of money...and the name of Spencer Lodge is always mentioned by these clients...Nigel defends himself saying that Lodge never worked for deVere in Brazil..but he worked for deVere elsewhere and apparently carried on his normal self deceitful style...ANYONE READING THIS DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY´S SERVICE...YOU VERY CERTAINLY WILL REGRET DOING IT.

I Recently Met a mr james Dodds of Devere, i Must say he was smooth, and very convincing, however upon searching briefly i found Farr to many complaints and issues, Even about james Dodds.

Shame on you james Dodds, totally wrong

I got a Lucky escape, seems many did Not.

To think it was all just a rehearsed Script. Avoid, or at least make sure you do your homework as i did.

Say you are interested and want to meet for lunch.Make it a possible 1000pm pension and if these guys think there is a good chance you will sign up then you get a proper slap up meal for free.

Then say you have read the brochure and it is a pile of crude.Unfortunately you have to spend time with the lowest of the low who would sell their own Mother for money but just grin and bear it.

How do you stop this devere nutcase calling??

I said no way to this awful locked-in deal but he keeps inviting me "for a drink" .

What I find really strange with all of this is that if you spend the time and money in the UK and invest in either a IFA or a bank job you will make good money. For all the heartache do you really think you will make the 200K. Really I think this has to be put in perspective and also charging up front for client to deal with you and then putting them into appropriate products will be better for the client and yourself in the long run.
