AdviserAsset Platform Platinum Rating for the third year in a row

AdviserAsset offers a market leading platform research tool which advisers use to compare products and charges across individual platform providers.

AdviserAsset's key success factors

Interview with Colin Turton, Director of AdviserAsset

In this short video, Colin Turton discusses the critical success factors taken into account when giving a platinum rating to a platform. He also talks about the advisers' views on a range of subjects.

AdviserAsset assessed each platform across nine key areas covering:

  • The price competitiveness of platforms, taking into account the funds that advisers are using and the total cost of ownership
  • The extent to which platforms deliver features and functionality most valued by advisers
  • The quality of the adviser experience in using the platform technology, and the quality of service and support provided to advisers
  • The level of confidence that advisers have in the stability of each platform.
