Focus: Platform to the future
Investment platforms may be core to the 'future' of retail investing, but as a topic they are considered rather dry by comparison to the 'sexier' Retail Distribution Review (RDR).
On the next few pages, Investment Adviser will explore in greater depth the technical aspects of the FSA's platform paper and the IFA community's response to the proposals. And starting on page 36 is a roundtable exploring how the fund management industry will respond to the new RDR regime.
