Hargreaves Lansdown has pushed back its widely anticipated pricing announcement until next year, having previously said it would be revealed in early December.
The group said in a stock exchange announcement this morning that "work was progressing well" and that the "extra time" would allow it to "refine" the Wealth 150.
The group said: "Hargreaves Lansdown will also be announcing its RDR pricing structure in early 2014.
"This announcement was previously scheduled for the end of the calendar year 2013. The regulatory deadline for implementing our new RDR pricing structure is 6 April 2014.
"Work is progressing well and the extra time will allow us to refine the Wealth 150 review and overall proposition so that we ensure we achieve the best results for our clients."
The group's pricing decision will be key to where competitors price their own propositions, and as such is being watched closely by peers.
However, the delay hints at the difficulties all distributors are having in securing the deals they want regarding super clean pricing, as the businesses adapt to a world without rebates.
While a few competitors have put forward fund lists containing details of which funds they will be offering to the market, even some of these deals are far from complete.
A note from Barclays suggested Hargreaves could be planning to charge lower net worth clients up to 70bps, as part of a tiered pricing structure.
However, chief executive Ian Gorham (pictured) today said no decisions had been made.
"We note recent unfounded press speculation about Hargreaves Lansdown's pricing, but at this stage details of our final charges are yet to be confirmed," he said.
"We are delighted with the results of our tender to fund managers seeking market leading fund charges for our clients. We look forward to announcing the pricing structure in early 2014 and implementing it before the regulatory deadline of 6 April 2014."
