We’re an investment and technology solutions business that supports financial advice firms in the creation and operation of a centralised investment proposition (CIP).
Our proposition is founded on the seamless integration of three key disciplines; discretionary investment management, platform administration and intuitive technology. All of these enable us to reduce operational risk for advice firms and improve their profitability through greater efficiencies. In turn, they’re able to deliver a streamlined client experience, enhanced by our easy-to-use technology.
Advice firms that partner with us gain access to a broad suite of investment solutions, each aligned to our proven risk management framework. So, whatever an investor’s needs and preferences, we have a suitable portfolio option. All the heavy lifting of managing a CIP is handled by us and our service model is award-winning - testimony to the quality of our support.
As the world changes and customer needs evolve, advice firms need to adapt. With a long track record for innovation, we’ve been a pioneer in the development of online advice services. We’re able to support advice firms in the creation of multi-channel businesses, offering investors a choice as to how they get their investment advice.
We offer 19 core solutions to allow for varying client objectives, including Strategic, Tactical, Active, Passive, Ethical, Income, Drawdown, and third part asset allocation mandates including Dynamic Planner (Distribution Technology) and Morningstar SAA mandates. Further to this we manage solutions using Dimensional Fund Advisers (DFA) and Vanguard Life Strategies funds.
We offer a fully integrated award winning service, including DFM, Custodial and Technology services.
All portfolios are multi asset, well diversified and can be mapped to a range of risk providers which are automatically rebalanced.
There are 10 risk grades for every in house solution, allowing for client’s varying attitude to risk and capacity for loss.

The Practical Solution
DD|hub provides a practical framework for advisers to use in the due diligence part of their provider selection. We do not force you to use a standardised questionnaire nor do we have a proprietary selection process that we make you use.
