Investment Funds Direct Limited Key Developments

IFDL Calls Off Fundsdirect Sale

Investment Funds Direct Limited( IFDL) has called off the sale of its direct-to-consumer platform Fundsdirect after bidders failed to reach the firm's asking price. Hugo Thorman, Managing Director of IFDL, said the company had made the decision to keep the business as it had not received an offer which matched its valuation of the platform. "We felt the offers didn't reach a reasonable figure for the value of the income stream," he said. "We had many offers from a wide range of places who wanted to get into the direct to consumer market, including advisory firms, providers and other platforms. We're not negotiating with anyone anymore and [we are] keeping it unless someone comes up with a super price."

IFDL Puts Its Platform Fundsdirect Up For Sale

Investment Funds Direct Limited (IFDL) has put its direct to consumer platform Fundsdirect up for sale. IFDL said it had put the business up for sale because it does not see execution-only services as core to its ongoing business strategy. Hugo Thorman, Managing Director of IFDL, said: 'Fundsdirect participates in the market which is expected to benefit hugely from the retail distribution review but it is ultimately at odds with our ongoing strategy which is to focus on intermediaries. Obviously we would expect to continue to administer the assets and products for the new owner.
