AXA Wealth has set out the charges for investment advice given through its bancassurance partnerships with the Co-operative Bank, Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks and West Bromwich Building Society.
Branch advisers at the banks and building society will charge customers 3.25% of assets regardless of how many assets they have.
There will be no ongoing advice charges and no minimum investment amount to get advice.
Customers will also be charged a 1.25% initial platform charge under the new pricing structure. There will be no ongoing platform fee.
Its new four-tiered pricing structure was made available on 1 January and saw it simplify its previous ten tier structure and cut prices by almost half.
