Deposits

We act as an introducer to Insignis Cash Solutions. As such they share a portion of their annual fee with us.

You will receive initial support (demonstrations, introduction and help using the platform for your first deposit). This is without any further charge.

Your relationship will be with Insignis who will (subject to you agreeing to be on their mailing list) keep you up to date with products and services etc.

It is important to remember that the deposit platform is an ‘execution only’ service. i.e. deposit decisions are made by you. 

The platform and our service only deals with cash deposits. We do not and can not give any guidance on any other forms of Investment.

All deposit decisions remain your responsibility. We do not and can not give advice on which banks and which products you should deposit in. We can supply a draft investment policy that is focused purely on cash deposits but it is your responsibility to ensure you adapt it to meet your needs and risk profile.

 

Should you wish to retain our services as a consultant on-going, you are welcome to do so – this is generally on a small monthly fee with a ‘fair usage’ policy.

In some instances, we will not levy a fee on you and will rely on introducer commission or fees from a financial partner.

Introducer Commission

As an appointed representative of Medifinance Ltd, we have a panel of lenders to explore lending options from. These lenders will usually pay an introductory commission allowing us to usually offer you our services without charge.

If we receive a commission or fee share from an organisation we introduce you to, this is retained by us.
