Transact is a wrap service that provides an online administrative support tool for financial advisers to assist them in managing client portfolios. It uses an online platform to bring assets and investments together in on place, releasing financial advisers from time-consuming paperwork and administration.
Transact provides a consolidated dealing service for financial advisers which enables them to instruct Transact to undertake purchases and sales of investments on behalf of their clients.
Transact does not provide any investment advice. Products offered include General investment accounts, ISAs, JISAs, offshore bonds, onshore bonds, Personal Pension Plan and SIPPs.
Legal & General's decision to invite offers for Cofunds just two years after it bought the platform is fraught with a number of potential pitfalls, according to industry commentators.
