Analyse, adapt and act

It’s all about value for money in the platform industry and fee pressure is unlikely to abate. But how do you make sure you’re monitoring the market effectively?

The Sandbox allows platforms to analyse their fees against those of their competitors and across different wealth bands, adapt to changing fee and competitor pricing trends, and act to stay ahead of their peers and gain a competitive advantage.

Save time and money

Running detailed, accurate spreadsheets that analyse competitors’ pricing strategies is time-consuming and costly to manage and maintain. By using Comparetheplatform’s premium Sandbox functionality, your analysts will be free to focus on pricing strategy rather than wasting valuable time collating and maintaining competitors’ pricing data.

The Sandbox allows platforms to add up to 10 scenarios and provides immediate rankings for pre-defined portfolios (£100K, £500K, £1m and £5m) or run a bespoke portfolio. Platforms can also choose how they’re ranked against a particular competitor.

Protection and encryption

We have used the latest encryption standards to ensure that your commercially sensitive data is not visible to other platforms or the Comparetheplatform team. Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is used to encrypt platform data using a secret key and data is stored and backed up in its encrypted format.

In addition, encrypted data can only be accessed by authorised users. The decryption method uses the same secret key.
