THE OBLIGATORY CORONAVIRUS STATEMENT

We hope you’re all doing OK. We are all working from home quite happily – every member of the lang cat team is fully set up to deal with both the zombie apocalypse and business as usual in terms of video conferencing, phone and email. All the contact details you’re used to will still work as normal.

We know everything is unsettled right now, but that simply highlights the need for you to communicate calmly and confidently with your clients, whether they be advisers or investors. Once the novelty of this situation wears off, we think there will be an unprecedented demand for quality content. If you’d like us to help on that front, we know a thing or two about it. Whitepapers, thought leadership articles, podcasts, videos – we are old hands at all of it. Please just get in touch with your usual lang cat contact, or email us at mark@langcatfinancial.com.

And if you haven’t availed yourself of some cat and would like to think about coming out of this slowdown roaring, whether it be getting some fresh insight, working on a long-planned proposition development or really stepping up your corporate presence, then now is an excellent time so to do. Give us a call on 0131 202 5999 or drop us an email.

NOW TAKING THE GRUNT WORK OUT OF YOUR PLATFORM DUE DILIGENCE.

Our long-talked-about and even-longer-thought-about REG TECH Platform Analyser tool is now live. Find out more and register for a free seven day trial here.

“Platform Analyser has already helped us with quick price and proposition comparisons and will make our due diligence process much more efficient. It doesn’t come for free but when I saw how much it costs, I didn’t think twice about signing up.”

Richard Allum, The Paraplanners

LATEST PUBLICATIONS

Making the complex simple is at the heart of what we do! and the many reports we publish are proof of that. Our guides to both the advised and direct platform markets are packed full of data, commentary, analysis, pricing heatmaps, high-end cat images and the occasional rogue pun. We’ve also published standalone reports on platform pricing, investment outsourcing, the retirement savings market, withdrawal products and more. Lots more! We even give some of them away for free, and there’s plenty more on the way. They’re all 100% genuine lang cat and they’re all right here.
