Execution Only


We appreciate that some people know exactly what they want and do not require any advice from us. In such cases we are usually happy to transact the business on an 'Execution-only' basis.  This is where a transaction is executed by us upon your specific instructions, and where we do not give advice about the merits or otherwise of the transaction.

Our use of online platforms has now opened up a greater possibility for those wishing to choose their own investments. Rather than worrying about whether you should have a product from a particular provider, all you need do is tell us which type of product you require, for example, unit trust, OEIC, investment trust, investment ISA, onshore or offshore life assurance bond, or a self invested pension fund; and which fund or funds you require and in what proportions.

One major advantage of using an investment platform is that if you decide to switch your investments in the future, there will normally be no selling and buying charge.  We will also be able to easily transfer monies from your General Account into your ISA Account and provide capital gains tax information as and when required.

If you wish to transact on an Execution Only basis you need to be certain of what you want and you need to be aware that the product you choose may not be suitable for you.  If something goes wrong there may be no opportunity to make a claim as you may lose all or part of the protection offered to Private Customers under the Financial Conduct Authority, Financial Ombudsman Scheme and Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

The guidance and/or advice contained within this website are subject to the UK regulatory regime, and are therefore targeted at consumers based in the UK.
