Drawdown Tool

A unique tool that considers plans in accumulation and in drawdown. The key features of this tool (too numerous to cover all here) include:

  • Ability to dynamically model various income withdrawal profiles so that the point at which the fund might be depleted is clear. The amount of withdrawal can be flexed over time.
  • Once your pattern of withdrawals are set, the tool will undertake a flexi-access drawdown charge comparison.
  • Calculates and compares the charges applicable to both on and off-platform solutions as required by FCA PS11/9.
  • Includes the charges of your investment portfolio as applicable to each platform taking into account share class variances (as required by FCA DP10/2). The tool reflects any exclusive or semi-exclusive share classes and any unit rebates. Insured/mirror funds can also be included for life company solutions.
  • Adjusts results to take account of any special platform pricing deals that have been negotiated.
  • Includes any transaction charges that might be incurred for switching/rebalancing and includes ETFs and Investment Trust transaction charges.
  • Accommodates any DFM and DFM portfolio, combing both DFM and platform charge if required.
  • Facility to build you own platform to reflect any bespoke platform arrangements you may have.
  • Accommodates your adviser charging; initial and ongoing, fixed £ fee, % fee, tiered fees.
  • Allows for existing/connected platform accounts.
