Execution Only

Execution Only account holders are required to make their own decisions and can make transactions at their own discretion without the assistance of an investment manager.


If you select an advisory service, you will be required to confirm your understanding of the relevant product or service and associated risks and may be required to provide a power of attorney or appointment of agent for any relevant trading accounts so as to allow our team access to act on your instructions.


If you choose to partake in a discretionary managed account, you will be required to confirm your understanding of the product and service and associated risks and rewards and provide a power of attorney for the investment account in question so as to have it managed in accordance with your chosen strategy.

Please note SIPP and ISA account Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and is subject to change.
You may be eligible, so please check with HMRC or your Independent Financial Adviser.
