FSA’s proposals will put platform fees under pressure


As the FSA proposes to ban payments from product providers to fund platforms, Deloitte, the business advisory firm, says increased transparency will put platform fees under pressure.

Andrew Power (pictured), lead RDR partner at Deloitte, says: “The FSA’s platform paper confirms its originally stated position, and is line with the principles behind RDR of transparency and elimination of bias. It will cause platform providers to re-look at their offering and costs to ensure they can remain viable in a more transparent world where platform fees are likely to come under pressure.  Asset managers who have been reliant on rebates to obtain shelf space on platforms will need to ensure their propositions still stand up in a cash rebate free market.”
