North is a full service wrap platform which was launched in 2007. It is designed for individuals looking for greater flexibility, choice or advisor involvement in managing their wealth. North Pension has been closed to new members since March 2016.Members have access to a wide range of Diversified and Single Manager investment strategies, as well as 4 guaranteed investment options. With additional costs associated with North Guarantee, members can receive a guaranteed return over a specified time period, although this feature is no longer available for North Pension accounts from 20 February 2016. Access to Direct Equities, ETFs, LICs and Term Deposits is also provided. The North Index Balanced option has underperformed the SuperRatings Index over the 1 and 5 years to 30 June 2017.Fees for this product are lower than the industry average across all assessed account balances (we note the ratings assume administration fee discounts are applied). Further savings can be obtained through individual or family fee aggregation. No exit fees or switching fees are applicable, although transactional costs may be incurred for changing investment options. An excellent level of pension flexibility is provided. Members have the ability to select a pension payment date and can receive their pension payments in a variety of frequencies ranging from fortnightly to annually. Payments can also be set to increase automatically by CPI or a nominated percentage annually. A good selection of death benefit options, including binding nominations and reversionary pensions, is also provided. Furthermore, Death cover is available for pension members.
