Fee income is a major source of revenue for many brokers and investment managers. It is also potentially a key area in which firms can try to achieve a competitive advantage and USP.
The RDR and various comments coming out of the FCA about Fees & competition have increased end clients awareness of management fees. The Adviser Charging rules introduced by RDR and the likely changes for platform charges means firms will increasingly need to be able to support fee structures dictated by others. These demands and pressures will further increase the need for flexibility in the basis of fees.
In a period of regulatory overload, a wave of legislation has come into force, aiming to bring greater transparency to the financial sector. This has meant an increase in the administrative burden faced by brokers and wealth managers.
Our solution helps reduce costs and increase margins. Firms can improve efficiency, accuracy and auditability, while offering the more complex and diverse fees that a post RDR world demands.
