It enables you to hold different types of investments together in one place with one valuation and dealing service. Our services include self-select ISAs, funds, shares, SIPPs and group SIPPs. We also offer discretionary portfolio management and a range of multi-manager funds for clients who don't want to choose and manage their own holdings.
