There was a wave of investment trust announcements this month: with new listings, changes to dividend policies, and a number of fee reductions on leading trusts. Elsewhere many fund managers are still digesting the wide-ranging industry reforms proposed by the Financial Conduct Authority at the end of June. The FCA published further details about its related review of fund supermarkets and platforms.

Watchdog Investigates Fund Platforms

The FCA has set out the terms of its investigation into fund platforms and supermarkets – announced as part of last month’s review into the asset management industry. This market study will focus on whether the platforms — which have grown exponentially in recent years – offer consumers value for money.

This ‘broad scope’ investigation will also look at wealth managers, bank and life companies, as well as more online fund platforms.
