The platform reached £10bn at the end of 2006 and Cofunds says that although net inflows have continued at high levels in recent months, the growth of assets under administration has been restricted by the slide in world stockmarkets since last August.
The company admits that due to its extensive investment in growing the business since it was first established in 2001, it did not become profitable until last year.
Chief executive Charlie Eppinger says: “At a time when it seems that some platforms have struggled with technology issues, systems that can cope with large flows of business are fundamental to our continued growth.
“We have developed a balanced business with good flows coming in Isas, unwrapped funds, Sipps and insurance bonds.
“We have built links with a range of tax wrap providers, which is a further demonstration of our independence. There are still more to come. In answer to repeated queries, as a result of this growth, Cofunds has been trading profitably for some while.”
Cofunds says it is continuing its investment in technology and will be launching additional services for fee-based advisers in due course.
