23 23 How do we see RDR playing out in our space and in the wider market?

24 24 Retail Distribution Review Professional standards Status disclosure Adviser remuneration

25 25 RDR – What do the FSA want to achieve? Raise the standards of all advisers Clear disclosure of adviser status Removal of product and provider bias (influencing the adviser) Information on cost of advice to explain advice isnt free and to show how the cost of advice relates to the cost of the product Any ongoing adviser charges to be supported with ongoing service

26 26 Status Disclosure Broader market test for Independence If not Independent, then Restricted

27 27 What is Independent? Whole of market All retail investments, including Investment Trusts, passive funds (ETFs) National Savings Structured Products etc

28 28 Adviser Charging Remove provider bias – prevent product providers from paying commission Remove product bias – required tied offices to remove product bias

29 29 Adviser Charging Adviser remuneration agreed between IFA and client Can take many different forms Must be clear Cannot be influenced by product providers Can by paid by cheque Or bundled with product charges, but no factoring

30 30 Life after RDR - Distribution Fewer advisers, but better qualified Continued demand for advice (for those who can pay) Client/Adviser relationship key Fewer Independent Advisers, some become Restricted Advisers … access to distribution will be important

31 31 Small firms with less than five sales staff dominates the UK IFA market Source: Datamonitor, Matrix-data

32 32 Turnover of IFA Firms (2009) TurnoverFirms% £1m to £50k2472% £50k - £100k3,34232% £100k - £500k4,71445% £500k - £1m5846% £1m - £5m3103% >£5m771% Unknown1,09711% 10,371100% Source: Data Monitor

33 33 Life after RDR – Asset Managers Greater competition for distribution Brand important Price will matter –But margins intact? Price Pressure? –Rebates may disappear? Further consolidation?

34 34 Life after RDR – Insurers Greater competition for distribution Can no longer buy business Brand important Factory Gate Pricing –margins intact (?) but much more visible? More consolidation in the industry Product commoditisation

35 35 Life after RDR - Platforms Major route to market Inevitable consolidation among Platform providers Transparency and unbundling will impact margins – today fund charges can vary by 80% between platforms (Citywire 26 April 2010) Restrictions likely on some of the current payments (unbundling)

36 36 Life after RDR - Clients Better quality advisers (?) – but fewer advisers Less transparency on total costs Cost of advice may increase Cost of product may reduce Impact of tax on advice costs (VAT, Pensions Relief)

37 37 What about SJP? Pre RDRPost RDR No Provider Bias No Product Bias Tied Advice Guaranteed Advice Trusted and Professional Highly Capitalised Control of Distribution Competitive Charges Investment Approach Adviser Remuneration No Provider Bias No Product Bias Restricted Advice Guaranteed Advice Trusted and Professional Highly Capitalised Control of Distribution Competitive Charges Investment Approach Adviser Charging
