THE SECOND LANG CAT GUIDE TO DIRECT PLATFORM INVESTING
It doesn’t seem like a year since we launched the lang cat’s first ever guide to direct investing: Come and Have a Go. But it is. That one was a bit of an experiment – our first time writing for non-industry folk – but some of those people were quite nice about it, so we decided to do it all over again with the imaginatively titled Come and Have a Go Too. All new, all free, with no sponsors, ads or ulterior motives.
What have we been up to now?
The run up to last year’s launch was a bit exciting for the direct market, with everyone showing their hand on explicit charges. The past year has also been hectic. We cover all the goings-on, natch. We also take an in-depth look at a few platforms and cast a lighter glance over some more. There’s a bit about pricing, but not just the pounds and percentages. We spend time guiding you through the charges you might face when setting up your direct platform investment and, just as important but less talked about, those you might encounter on the way out again.
Finally, we have the second annual Lang Cat Direct Platform Awards, where we celebrate platforms who have been super, smashing and may we say, great over the last year.
We hope you read and enjoy it. As ever, we’d love to hear your thoughts either way.
ALL LANG CAT, ALL THE TIME
We’ve got a brand new web store, which is well exciting. Follow the instructions and you’ll create a lang cat account. Your purchases will be stored there for you to download any time.
IMPORTANT: Once you’ve created your account and checked out you’ll see a link to download your copy. It’s quite small so glasses on, yeah? You’ll also get your link by email, so don’t worry if you miss it. If you don’t get the confirmation email, check your Spam or Clutter folders.
