Capita claims its independence will boost wrap deal

Software solutions provider Capita believes its independence means it is well positioned to grab a big slice of the intermediary wrap market.

The rollout of its Enabler proposition to the IFA market is set to gather pace in September when Bankhall goes live with the system.

Capita says it is in a unique position in competing with the wrap players as it is independent from product providers and adviser groups and offers a proposition that plugs into all industry offerings.

Enabler will give Bankhall advisers access to a trading platform for buying and selling, switching and reconciliation. Its range will include an unwrapped investment account, an Isa, Pep and Isa transfer facility, self-invested personal pension and a bond.

Investment links will include an RBS trading account, cash fund, five model portfolios plus access to whole of market funds through Fundsdirect. A range of Praemium model funds will be brought in next year. There will also be a self-trade option for direct equity investment.

Capita business services managing director Graham Coxell says: “Ultimately, the benefit to the network will be an optimised operation which will maximise productivity and cost-efficiency.

“Advisers will be able to spend less time on administrative tasks and more time selling. Clients will be offered a more proficient service from their members.”
