The value of investments can go down as well as up, and the investors could get back less than was paid in.

Our due diligence support

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) requires advisers to document their reasons for choosing the investment platform they do for clients. Advisers must also demonstrate the platform meets the suitability requirements for each client segment.

Choosing the right platform solution for your business and for your clients can take time. 

We’ve produced our Wrap due diligence guide to support you through each stage of the selection process. The guide also highlights the due diligence questions you should ask to comply with the regulator. 

For more information, please speak to your usual abrdn contact to find out how Wrap can support your business and help you to meet your clients' needs. If you’re new to abrdn or unsure who your aligned contact is, get in touch with our Business Development team.


Working in conjunction with your usual Sales contact, the Sales Enablement team are here to support you. Email us at or

Defaqto rating

Our track record and reputation for strong customer service was recognised by Defaqto. It awarded Wrap with a Gold Platform Service Rating.

Drawdown due diligence

There is an increased focus on supporting clients in retirement and making their income last.

That’s why it's important to choose a platform provider committed  to creating  long-term retirement solutions for your clients. 

In addition to providing tailored drawdown options, Wrap’s Drawdown Price Lock can help you achieve better outcomes for clients in retirement. The SIPP solution charge clients pay can be locked at its lowest level. This feature is unlike traditional fee structures where rates rise as a client’s pension pot reduces.
