What’s in it for investment managers and financial advisers?
Create new revenue – and deliver better
Why have your clients pay for a platform that’s not fit for purpose, when they can pay you to deliver one built around their needs?
By operating your own platform with Seccl, you can own more of the value chain – turning a third-party platform fee into a business revenue driver.
Your clients benefit from an improved, streamlined and invariably cheaper platform service, delivered by someone they know and trust. While you reap the rewards of a more efficient, easy-to-use platform that’s built around your business and run under your control.
Take control of your business
Many advisers, wealth managers and discretionary investment managers are growing frustrated with the platforms that they use. Existing platforms rely on old technology that creates inefficiencies at every stage. Integration is painful and expensive. Administration is difficult. And change is hard and slow.
Add to the mix the growing downward pressure on fees from clients, and the business case for ditching the existing platforms altogether – and choosing to operate your own one instead – is growing day by day.
The decision to build and operate a platform has traditionally been so costly or disruptive as to make it the exclusive option of large firms or national networks – but with our custody, settlement and trading infrastructure, and intuitive client management portals, it’s never been easier.
As long as you have the right FCA permissions, and are prepared to take on the additional duties involved, it could help to take your business to the next level.
