Investing the Skandia way

Some companies are set up to sell their products to you online. Our policy is different. We believe that your chances of achieving your goals are increased by establishing a long-term, three-way relationship with us and with the financial adviser of your choice.

We provide a fresh approach to investing. One that enables you and your financial adviser to discuss your needs, assess and agree your attitude to risk and then build and maintain an investment portfolio to match.

It’s what we call investing the Skandia way.
