On 17 November 2010, the FSA published a consultation paper on delivering the retail distribution review (“RDR”) and other issues for platforms and nominee-related services (CP10/29).

CP10/29 contains proposals which aim to ensure that platform services used to buy and manage investments are aligned with the standards required by the RDR. Its publication follows a March 2010 FSA discussion paper on delivering the RDR for platforms.

Key proposals relate to adviser charging, independent advice, platform remuneration and rebates.
