I agree Anon, sometimes I think The Fold and others in this space analyse and interpret the worst case scenario rather than the norm. Absolutely if you’re building in a 20bps margin for a ‘research fee’ then yeah that’s conflicted and an in-house product. If you’re investing clients into an SMA off the shelf from a platform, it’s no different from using any other managed fund, LIC or listed security.
