    Funds on flat-fee brokers 9th Oct 17 at 8:35 PM
    Good evening,
    I was looking at iweb and Halifax recently and noticed that they didn't seem to have any Ruffer funds or the IT, is there a quick way of finding out which flat-fee platforms do Trojan O, Capital Gearing trust and Ruffer? As I want to setup a capital preservation buy and hold

    The Ruffer IT (RICA) should be available on Halifax.

    Any share dealing platform will have access to shares listed on LSE so you should find all the popular investment trusts on iWeb and Halifax
    Remember the saying: if it looks too good to be true it almost certainly is.

    I wanted to use iweb for my SIPP but they are missing a number of funds I wanted.

    GAM Star Credit Opps and Polar Capital Global Insurance in addition to the Ruffer funds.

    Frustrating.

    'The Share Centre' (flat fee) seem to have a wider range of funds.

    As Jimjames said you should already have access to Ruffer and Capital Gearing as they are simply company shares just like Shell, BT etc. They won't be in a list of "funds".

    The last time I checked iweb did have CGT and RICA but not some of the others mentioned.

    There was a suggestion on a thread a while ago that it may be related to clean classes (or lack of?) in some of these funds.

    Seems fair enough.

    Did they give a reason? It's hardly an obscure fund.

    Iweb called to say they were unable to add the funds requested (no reason given).

    Ah well, the hunt continues.
