The article reports on the statement given by Platforum managing director Holly Mackay that Independent Financial Advisors (IFAs) are eyeing to develop their own wrap propositions in Great Britain.

However, Ascentric head of sales Shaun Sandiford stated that white-labelling an existing wrap-provider's technology would be more efficient compared to building own platform.
