IFA Platforms in the UK (Wraps)
Review of the major players in the Wraps market
Defaqto
Dec 2004 United Kingdom Investment - General, Advisers
This report has identified that not all wrap propositions offer fully integrated pension facilities. The researcher claims this will limit the potential for wraps to take advantage of the natural restructuring of pensions investment ahead of ‘A day’. The report states that this, combined with uncertainty over the scope of the investment allowed, makes the take up of wraps by SIPP investors, the most obvious client group, somewhat less likely.
