Our brand

The concept behind our look is ‘rewarding relationships’ – two elements coming together to create something better.

It reflects why we’re here, which is to empower advisers to meet the evolving needs of their customers, in order to provide them with a more rewarding financial planning and retirement experience.

Building on the past

Our goal is to:

  • take the fintech essence of the existing Nucleus business – its adviser-centric, technology-led, challenger mindset
  • and combine it with James Hay's SIPP/retirement expertise and problem-solving know-how, and;
  • Curtis Banks' SSAS and SIPP products.

By combining these groups, we will create a leading retirement-focused platform which supports financial advisers and their customers across the full wealth spectrum.

Our aim is to deliver a straightforward and simple to use platform that’s supported by a smart, personal service that allows advisers to utilise and benefit from the expert insight we bring.

Our shareholders

HPS Investment Partners, a major US private equity provider, is the majority shareholder of our parent company - the Nucleus Financial Platforms Group. In September 2022, they joined our existing shareholder Epiris, which has retained a significant minority stake. We're able to continue to innovate thanks to their investment support.
