Platforms are part of the essential plumbing for advisers and investors in most investment areas, but the tax-advantaged space has lagged mainstream markets. Dan Rodwell, CEO of GrowthInvest, comes on to discuss why that is and how they are looking change it.
GrowthInvest has been on a journey itself, so we start by finding out how it has evolved and why. We chat about the tax advantaged market as whole, the additional complications that this space brings for platforms and what can be done about them. We also dig into the challenge of platforms getting to profitability, with Dan setting our clear benchmarks and how & when he thinks GrowthInvest will get there.
With GrowthInvest announcing it is taking on Kuber's former clients, we explore the failure of the latter. We get Dan's perspective on what went wrong there and what lessons he takes away from it. We also discuss the recent transaction and what it means for Kuber's former clients, GrowthInvest and the market as a whole.
