Given the current economic squeeze, you could be forgiven that talking to clients about investing their cash is a pointless exercise. But aptly, with spring around the corner, now is actually the ideal opportunity to bring a little sunshine into the financial gloom and embrace the growing season.
Even in belt-tightening times, rising interest rates enable your clients to offset its negatives – such as increased mortgage payments – by maximising their interest income.
Cash is one of the safest saving options, offering a handy emergency buffer with quick, easy access when required. But most cash deposits sit idly in high street accounts earning next to nothing. So how can you make your clients’ cash work harder while building your business too?
How Flagstone benefits you and your clients
As the UK’s leading cash deposit platform, Flagstone offers your clients a way to boost their savings, and grow your own business by retaining – and attracting – savers who may not have considered cash as part of a richer investment portfolio.
With just a single application, you and your clients receive access to hundreds of savings accounts – including market-leading and exclusive rates – from up to 53 high street, and challenger banks and building societies.
Clients can spread their funds across as many savings accounts as they choose and benefit from FSCS protection of up to £85K (170K for joint accounts) for each eligible account opened – without any further application forms or paperwork.
Our platform is highly-secure, simple to use, and provides 24/7 access, giving your clients control over their money. Your own ‘view only’ account also gives you complete visibility of their portfolio, plus alerts about new products or maturing funds – enabling you to start timely (re)investment conversations.

Flagstone gives you an extra weapon in your adviser armoury, enabling you to offer your company, charity and individual clients an alternative – and better – way to protect and increase their cash funds.
