Interactive Investor sets up wealth service

Investors will be able to check out their overall wealth with a new service from financial website Interactive Investor.

Interactive Investor says it is the first financial services website to offer people an overall picture of their total net worth.

The site will give investors the chance to see what shares other users are holding, make product comparisons and make decisions about a range of products.

The site will offer an adv-anced portfolio which gives users the opportunity to summarise their share holdings, funds and other assets such as property.

Users will be able to access debt information and can share information with other users about deals they have found.

Comparisons can be made on more than 4,000 products, including mortgages, credit cards, loans and savings accounts.

Interactive Investor chief executive Tomas Carruthers says: “This has been des-igned with feedback from our 1.4 million user comm-unity to serve the growing appetite for informed and ind-ependent personal wealth management.

“We want to provide people with a real picture about everything that affects their wealth portfolio.”

Don&#39t rob Paul to pay Peter

I do wish Peter Hargreaves would refrain from telling the small fry how to conduct their business (Money Marketing, August 12). If he has a problem convincing John McFall to let him keep his trail commission, would he please not deflect the argument elsewhere. It is noticeable that Mr Hargreaves always refers to himself as […]

Lay blame at the right door

Are you not just fed up of the disproportionate criticism of the IFA sector with: •Misselling, over 80 per cent of which is attributable to the tied sector. •Misinformed criticism of fund-based trail commission. With defined-contribution pension provision in the private sector, how does the Treasury select committee expect the essential ongoing advice to be […]

China’s economic bounce may already be over

By Mike Riddell (17 May 2016) Most people would explain the rally in global risky assets since mid-February as being primarily down to the spectacular volte-face from the Federal Reserve, where Janet Yellen (and others) dramatically toned down their narrative that the Fed would be hiking rates as many as four times in 2016.
