Our role

We provide facilities for comparing and investing in funds from a wide range of providers and for keeping track of your investments.

All our services are provided on an execution only basis. We do not provide advice and therefore do not have a duty to ensure suitability of the service, product or action you select. This means you will not be entitled to compensation from us if it is established that the service or product or action you select is not suitable for you.

It is your responsibility to take into account your circumstances and objectives and make your own judgement as to suitability. If you have any doubts we recommend you take professional financial advice.


How we are paid

We work for you. Our only income comes from the charges you pay on investments you make. We not not accept any commission or other payments from anyone else.

The copyright of all content on our website belongs to us or others.

Exclusions of liability

Nothing in these terms of use excludes or limits our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or for our fraud, or excludes or limits our duties or any liability under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, as amended, ("FSMA") or any conduct of business rules developed pursuant to FSMA.

We will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the content of our website is accurate. We will also endeavour to correct any errors or omissions as soon as practicable after being notified of them. However, we are not responsible for any inaccuracies in content.

We are not liable for any loss, distress or inconvenience caused by falls in the value of any investments. The value of investments can go down as well as up and you could get back less than you invest. The past is not a guide to future performance.


Financial projections

We will provide you with financial projections for the purpose of comparing investments and informing your financial plans. These projections shall:

  • Illustrate a likely range of outcomes based on the balance of probability
  • Be prepared using well recognised actuarial techniques
  • Be based on reasonable assumptions supported by objective data
  • Incorporate the full impact of all charges

The projections we provide are based on the balance of probability and the actual returns on your investments will usually be different. The “bad case” projection is not a “worse case” and there is a 1 in 6 chance that the actual returns on your investments will be worse than the “bad case” projection.

We are not liable for any loss, distress or inconvenience caused when the actual returns on your investments are different to our projections.


Law

These terms of use will be governed by and construed in accordance with English law. There is no minimum duration for the contract.
