Skandia is launching its unbundled platform model in the fourth quarter of 2012, along with an adviser charging structure designed to accommodate different fee types.
The new structure on Skandia Investment Solutions (SIS) will allow advisers to implement fees through both monetary and percentage options across four areas: upfront, ongoing, fund switches and adhoc fees.
Its unbundled charging structure will include a platform cash solution across all products to facilitate the payment of adviser charging rules and provide a "safe haven" for client assets, said Skandia.
The platform will launch an online prototype of the revamped charging structure in the third quarter so advisers can get up to speed with the proposition.
Details of Skandia's new charging proposition come hot-on-the-heels of FundsNetwork's announcement that its unbundled model is now live. Cofunds, meanwhile, is launching its unbundled model in the first half of this year as the rivalry between the three biggest platforms hots up.
Skandia said all advisers will be managed on the single SIS platform regardless of the charging structure.
"Our structure ticks all the boxes and will have the flexibility to facilitate the charging structure agreed between the adviser and their client," said a Skandia spokesperson.
"Furthermore, we will put in place a full programme of support and the prototype, available from Q3, will greatly enhance this."
Elsewhere, the platform said it will support both independent and restricted advisers post RDR. It believes there will be strong demand for both propositions, with many firms adopting a hybrid model.
