Chelsea Financial Services (branded as Chelsea Investment Intelligence) was founded in 1983 by present chairman John Holder. The company is an online supermarket that lets investors access a wide range of funds, and offers a shortlist of funds to simplify chice for individual investors. It is a discount broker and was one the first intermediaries to discount initial charges on unit trusts and bonds, and later PEPs and ISAs.
