Access to the Fund Research Centre and associated tools

Our fund research centre with FE Fund Info (previously Financial Express) will support your adviser (if you have one) in finding investments to match your needs.  It is also available for you to use (with or without an adviser). If you have any questions on your investments you can speak to your adviser. If you would like to get professional financial advice and don’t currently have an adviser, you can find a list of advisers on the Unbiased website by visiting unbiased.co.uk and clicking on ‘Financial Adviser’ under ‘Who are you looking for?’

Easier trading journey – If you have access to trade on your own account then you will like our new shopping basket functionality which uses best practice from ecommerce sites to help you and your adviser (if you have one) quickly buy investments.

No action for you – All existing investment instructions or withdrawals will remain in place and the availability of the platform will not be affected.  All you need to do is log in to the new web address:  scottishwidows-platform.com.
