AXA Elevate and Hornbuckle Mitchell partnership offers advisers fast and efficient service
AXA Wealth recently announced that total platform assets under administration at the end of Q1 had risen to £2.5bn. The platform, which has been recognised for its superior level of features and benefits for the second consecutive year, has partnered with Hornbuckle Mitchell to further strengthen the platform’s offering by giving advisers access to sophisticated SIPP functionality with the convenience of managing clients’ assets and information in one place.
The partnership will allow advisers to benefit from:
- broad asset choice via a single platform and provider
- fast online transactions
- consolidated views to aid investment and reporting
- simple re-registration of funds on the platform
- a consistent client experience.
David Thompson, managing director, AXA Wealth UK Distributors, said: “AXA Wealth continues to seek out partnerships like the one with Hornbuckle Mitchell to strengthen its platform offering in the approach to the Retail Distribution Review. Being able to provide the benefits of Elevate’s electronic trading capabilities whilst retaining the full SIPP benefits of the pension creates a win-win scenario for advisers and their clients.”
David White, managing director, Hornbuckle Mitchell, said: “The market is moving towards the flexibility and choice embodied by SIPPs, but also the functionality and accessibility of electronic reforms. The partnership with AXA Elevate brings the two together, giving the benefits of our range of powerful SIPP solutions with the ability for advisers to see and manage all their client’s assets in one place.”
