THE TOP CLASS WEDNESDAY UPDATE IS 200, SORT OF

Well now, it seems like forever since I’ve had my hands dirty with the Update, ably assisted as I am by Rich, Old Tom (as opposed to Young Tom) and diverse others these days. In fact it’s only been three weeks, but as we all know a lot can happen in such a short time […]

THE TOP CLASS WEDNESDAY UPDATE IS LIVING IN A FRAGMENTED WORLD

And so it came to pass that the Platform of the Year Awards were held on a Tuesday night, and Mark had not lined anyone else up to write the Update and lo, he looked and he found that it was really not good. But given that the damage was self-inflicted he had no choice […]

THE TOP CLASS WEDNESDAY UPDATE DELIVERS DELIVERS DELIVERS DELIVERS

You know what? I can’t even. So here’s a joke instead. Why are ants always getting sick? Because they only have tiny antibodies. Thank you. I’m not here all week. Might take to my bed for the next two years. Quite tempted to leave the Update there. But I won’t. Instead, let’s have a think […]

THE TOP CLASS WEDNESDAY UPDATE IS A FAN OF CHANGE

Hello, hello, back again. After having done something like 150 of these Updates, it’s a wonderful thing to have a team that can not only dep on Update duty from time to time, but even volunteers for it sometimes. I mean, there was Mike before – celebrating his 7th birthday with us this very day […]

THE TOP CLASS WEDNESDAY UPDATE COUNTS THEM ALL BACK IN AGAIN

And so we bear down on a full year since all this madness began. Next week will mark the anniversary of when we shut the office; seems like twice that. For those readers in Engerland with kids, I hope the return to school has been good; ours is next week and it really can’t come […]

THE TOP CLASS WEDNESDAY UPDATE SAYS IT’S ALL IN THE MIND

Hello, hello, me again. Sorry for breaching your inboxes yesterday in an unexpected fashion and thanks to all who dropped a note to say you’d voted for Steve for Professional Adviser’s Personality of the Year. Double thanks to those of you who managed to crack a joke about Steve’s personality too – all of those […]

THE TOP CLASS WEDNESDAY UPDATE IS HERE FOR YOUR STONKS

Were you in? On #GME? And Dogcoin? Were ya? I’m proud to say that I took all the cash we’ve built up in the lang cat over the last 10 years, and SPANKED it straight on these STONKS because that’s what RoaringKitty told me to do. No, I didn’t, and neither did you (though Mark […]

THE TOP CLASS WEDNESDAY UPDATE MIGHT PUT THE TREE UP EARLY THIS YEAR

Welcome to the last twelfth of the year so bad they named it twice. If you’re still here – and that’s a conditional phrase that carries more weight than it should this year – then you made it. Well done. Nearly there. Keep going. I’m usually a bit of a moan about the run-up to […]

The Impact of Poor Service

We provided the research for a report, in conjunction with Parmenion, which reveals how far short of expectations many adviser platforms are falling. The research found that over the last 12 months, 88% of advisers needed to apologise to at least one of their clients on behalf of a platform, and that poor service delivery from platforms impacts 91% of advisers every day.

Answering the Call

Service means a lot of things to a lot of different people. It’s so subjective it can be hard to put your finger on. This paper aims to challenge the status quo and inertia that’s built up in the sector for many years.
