How our platform works

As the leading cash deposit platform in the UK, we provide your clients with access to greater protection for their money.

Secure, grow and manage your client's cash - quickly and simply

Refer your client to Flagstone

Your client opens their single Flagstone account, supported by our expert and trusted client service team. No need to complete paperwork for multiple banks.

Client transfers funds from their bank to their Flagstone account (minimum £50K deposit required for individuals, £250K for organisations).

You and your client browse and choose from multiple banks and deposit accounts

Our platform provides access to hundreds of accounts from up to 50+ banks – enabling clients to maximise interest and FSCS protection, if eligible.

Your client places their deposits with their selected banks

Your client can meet changing needs, plans and aspirations with complete visibility of their entire portfolio and access to their money.

Your client spreads their deposits, receiving FSCS protection for each account opened with a UK bank

All UK-based banks and building societies on our platform are members of the Financial Service Compensation Scheme. Your clients' eligible deposits are protected up to £85K for each individual bank account opened or £170K for each joint account.
