Alliance Trust unveils new fund supermarket

Alliance Trust Savings has revamped its fund supermarket with a new charging structure and the addition of open architecture funds.

The platform rebates all the commission it earns on fund management back to the customer via a cash account. This money can be used by the customer to pay their advisers’ fees or, if they are accessing the platform directly, it can be re-invested.

Investment choices include ETFs, gilts, corporate bonds and investment trusts, while wrapper accounts include Sipps and Isas.

Business development manager Malcolm Dodds says: “The launch of our unique fund supermarket marks a coming of age for our sharedealing service.
