IFA verdict: Anthony Kynaston, Director, London-based Ash-Ridge Asset Management
“There are lots of sites out there offering a similar sort of product for the financial adviser community, so this will have to have some exceptional material to generate any meaningful traffic at all. As far as I can see, there is nothing new here that isn’t offered by others, so making it easier to access is really neither here nor there.”
