Hi and welcome to our brand new website!
At AEON we’ve put our brains together and tried to produce a website which we think the public will love and want to come back to time and time again. However we don’t claim to be mind readers and therefore are sure that along the way we’ve missed a few bits and pieces that you would love to be featured. Additionally we are sure there are some bits we have created which you feel are perhaps unnecessary, confusing or dull.

The Times printed an article on 29 December 2012 in relation to the new rules that the Financial Services Authority (FSA) have implemented after their radical shake up of the industry, which comes under the banner of the Retail Distribution Review (RDR). The article raises some valid questions and we thought it would be useful to spell out how AEON has adapted to these new rules.
