FSA summarises the responses it received to Consultation Paper 09/18 (Distribution of retail investments: Delivering the RDR). These cover:

  • how platforms should be paid for the services they provide with advised sales once the RDR comes into effect at the end of 2012;
  • the delivery of adviser charging through platforms; and
  • the use of platforms by advisers providing independent or restricted advice.

FSA is also seeking views on issues about wider platform services, not just those which help advised sales. These include what capital platforms should hold to provide their services and investing in authorised funds through platforms.
