Raymond James launches bundled pricing model

Raymond James chief executive Peter Moores

Raymond James has announced a new bundled pricing model with a flat rate platform charge of 0.33 per cent.

The charge includes fund and share trades, account maintenance, and up to four free client valuations a year. It does not include Raymond James’ capital gains tax service including an annual report, which costs £125 plus VAT per account per year.

The bundled model, announced at Raymond James’ annual conference today, will sit alongside the platform’s “semi-bundled” model at 0.25 per cent, and the platform’s unbundled model at 0.15 per cent.

Raymond James chief executive Peter Moores says: “Our new bundled charging model has been tested and received well – it fills the gap in our charging structure and enables wealth managers to segment their client base and manage portfolios for high net worth and smaller investors through the one platform.”

England vs Australia: pensions

Well, the cricket season is here, and England and Australia are stepping up to the wicket. Although we compete with each other in the sporting world, when it comes to pensions, Australia’s pension programme is held up as a model for our auto-enrolment initiative. Auto-enrolment was introduced because people weren’t saving enough into their pensions, and it is still early days but signs are positive. However, in Australia, saving into a pension is compulsory, and in fact employers are the ones who have to pay in. Employees in Australia can make additional contributions into their pensions, but they don’t have to. Should the onus be on the employer or employee to save? Well in the UK we think it’s both, but to get ‘adequate’ savings for retirement it’s the employee who has to pay more in.
