Everything we know about platforms,
The lang cat’s Platform Analyser contains up-to-date proposition, pricing and business performance information for the top 26 advised platforms in the UK. Each part of Analyser is designed to fit your regulatory responsibilities and has been created post-PROD and MiFID II.
Up-to-date information, sense-checked by us
Platforms continually inform us of new developments via a bespoke portal, and we refresh data formally each quarter.
The key is that we don’t just take what we’re given – we pass it through the patented lang cat marketing nonsense filter first (note: may not actually be patented). What you get is what platforms actually do, minus the fluff.
Total independence, always
Most comparison systems make their coin by charging providers fees to be listed, or by offering marketing packages, or by giving out ratings and gongs which the platforms have to pay for if they want to stick on a brochure.
We don’t do any of that. No platform can pay to be on – or not on – Analyser, and if we ever offer precious-metal themed ratings you can take us for one of those fateful trips to the vet.
Suitability comes first
The regulation – whether it be COBS, MiFID II or PROD, is quite clear. Do what’s right for the client first, then consider your own business needs.
That’s how we approach Analyser. We’re all over the regulation that affects your business, and the workflows we design are custom-built to give you defensible, robust answers to difficult questions.
