Ascentric has added the Zurich Sterling Investment Bond to its wrap platform.
From the end of March, advisers will be able to access the onshore unit-linked bond through the wrap, while IFAs can request bond quotes and submit new applications online with immediate effect.
Valuations will be also available from the end of March, allowing advisers to view all clients investments held with Ascentric product partners on one screen.
Hugo Thorman, executive managing director of Ascentric says: “Every month we are developing new services or entering into new partner arrangements with product providers across the board. The distribution partnership arrangement with Zurich is another example of the value a major player places on our independent wrap platform.”
