SimplyBiz Plus adds service for bigger IFA businesses

SimplyBiz is offering a premium service, SimplyBiz Plus, designed to appeal to larger and more complex IFA firms.

The enhanced service is offering financial advisers four free compliance visits a year and six discounted file checks a month, together with access to free fund research, specialist support on trusts, Aequos and compliance, and technical helpdesks. The fee is fixed at £500 a month. SimplyBiz provides services to over 400 big IFA firms and 1,600 smaller practices.
