Affordable, flexible, and always transparent.

Our legacy-free tech means we’re one of the most affordable and efficient custodians and investment technology providers in the market. You’ll only pay for what you need – and we’re always clear on what it costs.

Typical charging structure

An affordable solution that starts at 0.1%


Typically, clients will pay you a monthly platform fee to cover the cost of custody, trading and any investment activity; while we’ll separately charge your firm a custody fee (calculated on each of your clients’ portfolios), a fee for client or adviser portals (if you’re using them), along with any variable costs incurred (like trading fees, Direct Debits, transfers or wrappers).

Our custody fee is designed to be one of the most affordable in the market, starting at just 0.1% and tiering down to zero for larger portfolios – with a minimum annual fee of £36,000. And there are absolutely no costs for integration or set-up.

It’s important to understand…

This calculator doesn’t account for the operational cost involved with running your own investment platform.

It’s a significant step that will carry certain new and perhaps unfamiliar roles and responsibilities – and will no doubt mean you’ll have to hire new administrative, operations or customer service staff.
