To assist clients in managing their investments, we can recommend online investment platforms (or ‘wraps’) to help consolidate all investment holdings, including ISAs, pensions and share portfolios, all in one convenient place. This is a fast growing market and we have particular expertise in the latest developments. Wraps can generate considerable cost savings over traditional channels due to the additional purchasing power they provide.
Remember, the value of your investments or any income from them ( including from ‘Wrap’ arrangements ) can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount invested.
