Trusts / Trustees

Insignis - A savings account that keeps you top of the market

We engage with many types of Trustees and Fiduciaries to ensure that our active cash management process leads to risk diversification and improved returns.

We know that the obligations under the Trustees Act 2000 and the Code of Good Governance motivate trustees to earn the best possible interest for their beneficiaries, balanced with providing optimum security. Our service enables our clients to apply these principals to the cash they manage as they do with other asset classes.

Examples of clients include Charitable Trustees, Pension Trustees, Attorneys, Deputies. Need more information? Read the FAQs

Some real life examples:

Pension client

A pension fund manager approached us recently concerned that a cash portion of their clients’ portfolio had been earning 0% interest for a long period of time.  Insignis immediately transferred the funds to a series of higher interest-bearing accounts and diversified the bank credit risk at the same time.

Power of Attorney

Insignis works with clients where Power of Attorney has been granted to a family member on behalf of a parent or relative.  Our client wanted to keep the majority of the estate in cash to pay for care. By using Insignis, our client saved time, improved the returns and ensured that the cash would be available at the right time to cover costs.

Your Insignis Account Manager will regularly review your accounts to ensure you are getting the best interest rates across a variety of term options to suit your liquidity needs. We work with banks that have a proven track record for financial strength, low administration costs and premium interest rates.

HOW INSIGNIS WORKS

Average Interest Rate

The average interest rate for the top five banks is 0.20%. The average for the top five rates available to our clients is 1.1%. That’s more than five times the amount you could be earning.

Trustee FAQs

How can I ensure the security of my trust money?

We understand that the security of deposits you have responsibility for must be paramount. Your deposits are always held in accounts that recognise your Trust as the beneficial owner. We have robust technology-backed procedures, like those used by solicitors when a house is bought.

Full details are available in our ‘Security of Deposits’ document.

How does this fit with my obligations under the Trustee Act 2000

The Trustee Act 2000 requires all Trustees to exercise a duty of care in all their activities.  This includes being able to demonstrate that the Trust’s money has been managed effectively.  Active cash management, as provided by Cash Solutions from Insignis, fulfils this obligation.

It’s a reasonable proposition but will it make enough money to be worth my while?

Providing a solution for your cash offers far more than a financial reward. The cash in the Trust is diversified from a counterparty perspective and allocated to provide for your liquidity preferences. If you factor in the time, effort and dedication involved in following interest rate movements the peace of mind alone can be worth it.

What reporting do you offer?

Via our website you can instantly create a pdf of your portfolio. You can also request a consolidated interest statement and real-time summary of all cashflows for any time period.

In the current interest rate environment is their enough value in doing this?

Higher interest rate environments tend to coincide with higher inflation figures so the net benefits often the same.

With so many non-High Street brands offering competitive rates it becomes more difficult for Trustees to keep on top of the most competitive rates that make a difference.

Why are you different from other Cash Management services?

Our value sits in the banking relationships we have established to complete the process fully with a one signature solution. The entire process is handled by us with our intuitive website keeping you fully informed.

Is there any risk in using the Insignis service?

No. Money remains in your name in reputable UK bank accounts. We simply remove the hassle of opening multiple bank accounts to get the best interest rates. We have robust technology-backed procedures, like those used by solicitors when a house is bought, to ensure the safety and security for our clients.

I am interested, what are the next steps?

Simply contact us, we will arrange for a member of the team to visit you at a time and place convenient to you. We propose to complete all necessary documentation in a single session to minimise the time and hassle to all our clients.
