5 GREAT THINGS ABOUT TRUSTNET DIRECT

Launched in 2014, roots in 1996

Trustnet Direct was launched in 2014 by the FE Group, owners of Trustnet, to help private investors plan, select, transact and manage their own investment affairs. FE specialises in the collection, validation and distribution of fund and equity prices, as well as factsheet information, and is the main supplier of data to the UK financial sector.

Financial Express

Formed in 1996 in the UK, FE remains a privately owned company with a strong international presence throughout Europe, India and Asia Pacific. FE is dynamic, entrepreneurial and focused on exceeding customer expectations. Above all, the FE Group help their clients to be better informed, enabling them to make better investment decisions.

Excellence through experience

FE has earned a reputation for excellence through years of experience in combining our specialist skills in three key fields - data, software and investment knowledge:

Data

We understand the nuances of the data and can bring them to life within the tools and ratings we develop for the industry and our clients.

Software

We are software experts, with deep experience in harnessing technology to provide effective solutions.

Investment Knowledge

We understand the complexities of investment and regulation, which we bring to bear on the solutions we build.

It is the dovetailing of these three skills in financial data, software technology and investment understanding that makes us different and stand out from our peers.

Trustnet, our sister site, has been around since 1995 and over the last
18 years has been serving the investment needs of over 350,000
private and professional investors.

Accessible & Enjoyable

We passionately believe that the internet can make investing more accessible and enjoyable for private investors wishing to gain more control over their financial futures. Yet, there has been a disconnect between the complex investment industry and its retail clients that we have attempted to fill.

Yes, some investors are happy and enjoy researching and comparing investment products to add to their investment portfolio, but others find it complex, confusing and intimidating.

Top service as standard

We have put the primary emphasis on quality of information and customer service but have endeavoured to be highly competitive on price. We still believe there is much more to gain by being ‘better invested’ than just offering a cut-price service.

Low cost, high value

In an age where the cost of advice and fund charges means it is harder than ever to make an attractive investment return, Trustnet Direct aims to offer investors a low-cost, high value service for private investors to manage their money more effectively.
