Novia launches structured products on platform

Novia has made available a raft of structured products from Barclays, Arc and Morgan Stanley on its platform.

Initial products available will include the Barclays defined returns and annual kick out plans, Arc fixed income plan and Morgan Stanley’s defensive gilt-backed growth plan.

Novia chief executive officer Bill Vasilieff says: “The addition to the platform of structured products from these highly respected providers further reinforces Novia’s commitment to offering the widest possible range of investment opportunities. We have responded to strong demand from advisers for platform access to these products and will continue to develop our principle of open architecture.”

Barclays Wealth director Colin Dickie says: “From our own research we know that advisers are increasingly eager for better access to structured products through platforms and it is encouraging to see a forward thinking business like Novia listening to the market and positioning its proposition accordingly.”
