How it works
When you use our discount direct service you will not receive any advice on the products
or investment you are purchasing. We will only send you generic information about
products and investment you request. We will not provide you with any advice, or
comment on the suitability, or affordability, of your investments or products.
You will need to make you own choice about how to proceed and this is why we can offer
you market leading discounts.
Cheaper than buying direct
If you invest directly with an investment manager or buy a product from an insurance
company the standard charges are usually the same for investments and purchases made
via our discount direct service.
Commission is automatically included in the total level of charges applied to your
investments, it is not charged in addition to the investment manager or insurance
company's own charges. Typically they will keep the commission for themselves,
increasing their profits, if you purchase directly.
We use the commission payable to provide you with market leading discounts on your
investments and cash back monies on product purchases. We retain a small amount of
the commission to cover the cost of arranging your investment and pass the balance
onto you as our commission gift. This commission gift is your discount. Please call
us or visit the
