If you're investing for your family, is it best to go with one company or lots?

Hi Rose

There are a number of reasons why it is advantageous to hold the investments with one company, including:

* Administration
* Costs and Charges
* Selection of Funds
* Selection of Funds Managers
* Advice and 1-2-1 service

Holding the investments on one platform provides you with access to multiple investment options including ISA's, Bonds, Pensions etc and you can access multiple funds and fund managers to ensure that your investments are well diversified. Also if the investment accounts are split, you will still benefit from the standard investment protection. Finally by working with one company you may also benefit from a 1-2-1 relationship with an adviser that will support and guide you, helping you to make the best investment decisions for you and your family.

I hope that this helps, please don't hesitate to contact me if you require further assistance.
