Why has AFB decided to start offering ETFs? And why now?
We have seen an increased demand from investors’ for passive products, and Allfunds plays a major role in facilitating access to financial products.
As a provider of Open Architecture Solutions Allfunds is responding to client demand.
Being a fintech company, Allfunds has now developed technology which brings together both funds and ETFs onto a single platform, overcoming some technological challenges (e.g. fractional dealing).
AFB Wealth Management clients who can now use the platform to sell ETFs.
The end client who will have a greater number of investment options.
Also, regular savers who would otherwise find it difficult to save small amounts using ETFs.
ETF providers will benefit in a segment of the market that it is currently very difficult for them to access.
Allfunds will benefit from closing the gap in the industry by distributing ETFs amongst financial entities, with a consistent and continuous service offering.
What added value services will Allfunds provide over the existing funds only platform?
As it does already with mutual funds, AFB will provide a full range of ETF services to support and facilitate the distribution of ETFs, offering a single access point for all execution, information and research needs.
What is “unique” or new on the AFB proposition?
No one has ever before offered services with mutual funds and ETFs on a single platform. ETFs can now be incorporated in fund wraps and investor solutions in the same way as mutual funds.
AFB will offer fractional ETF dealing which will facilitate distributors to build solutions for retail investors. Fractional dealing allows the incorporation of ETFs into regular retail saving programmes. When accessing ETFs today, investors are required to buy a whole number of shares and have not been able to invest in fractions. AFB will, provide multiple trading possibilities, including traditional equity-like trading.
Unlimited offering: AFB will offer access to any ETF listed on a stock exchange, from any ETF provider.
