Copia Capital - Management Team

The Copia management team

Our business is only as good as our people and Copia is fortunate to count some of the brightest stars in the DFM industry among the team.

Copia works exclusively with IFAs and our aim is to help your clients make more successful investments. ‘There’s a better way to do this’ is our mantra and we pride ourselves on having a unique, market-challenging approach.

What IFAs say

The Consumer Duty Toolkit

Whether you are running a centralised investment proposition (CIP), building your own portfolios or outsourcing to a provider such as Copia, the regulatory requirements are clear.

The challenge is not only to ensure compliance, but to also ensure your CIP doesn’t become unmanageable. A pragmatic and proportionate approach to implementation is required, and we want to help.

Register now for an introductory guide clarifying the requirements, the steps you need to take to meet them and an outline of the tools we’ll be launching over the coming months.

Over the coming months we will email you each element of the Toolkit as it becomes available, along with invitations to a series of webinars to discuss implementation and answer your questions.

Centralised Investment Propositions:
An overheating engine?

Copia Capital commissioned insight consultancy the lang cat to conduct in-depth research into how advisers are operating their CIPs. Among other issues, the lang cat talked to more than 100 advice firms about:

  • What drove them to build a CIP in the first place?
  • What benefits are they seeing?
  • Are firms running portfolios in-house, or outsourcing?
  • If firms are outsourcing, what drives them towards this decision?
  • What are the key areas of overheating risk in the CIP ‘engine’?

Read the full report into how CIPs became a victim of their own success and what advisers can do about it.
