What we do for financial advisers, platforms and asset managers

Investment Propositions

We work with financial planning firms to create robust evidence-based investment propositions. We influence well over £1billion of client assets through our research and due-diligence work for advisers.

Rating & Benchmarking

We benchmark investment products, platforms, and providers based on a range of metrics designed to support the adviser’s due-diligence and inform the provider’s competitive positioning in the marketplace.

Retirement Income

Our extensive research on sustainable withdrawal strategies is relied upon by planners to deliver robust retirement income advice and by providers to create products that are fit for purpose.
