Leading digital agency, Five by Five, has further developed Skandia’s innovative ‘PriceWatch’ investment comparison tool to enable users to compare 250 investment funds across six leading investment platforms. It has also planned that the tool will introduce pensions, alongside existing Individual Savings Accounts (ISAs) and Unit Trusts.

The new developments enhance the first version of PriceWatch designed for Skandia by Five by Five earlier in the year. Skandia PriceWatch www.skandiapricewatch.co.uk  helps Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs) to navigate complex platform charging structures easily and store results electronically as part of their due diligence process.

In the recent set of enhancements an additional 50 investment funds were added, along with the introduction of a default portfolio of funds based on industry wide net fund sales. A new information section has also been established offering users a straightforward guide to understanding the charges involved.

Jeremy Mugridge, Proposition Marketing Manager for Skandia, comments: “The initial catalyst for the PriceWatch tool was to deliver clarity to an area of the financial services market which has historically been a big problem for financial advisers. With help from Five by Five we have built a tool that enables financial advisers to accurately compare platform price structures and, following its initial success, we are now working with Five by Five to expand the tool further.”

Mark Scott, Managing Director at Five by Five comments: “Together with Skandia we are proud to have developed a system that helps advisers effectively compare charges. This project has been a big challenge as like-for-like comparisons have been virtually impossible due to the different charging structure of each platform. Thanks for our programming team we’ve been able to create a system that provides accurate comparisons across the board.”

Five by Five’s other financial clients include Denplan, Vanquis, Liverpool Victoria, Family Investments and International Personal Finance.
