We are the Nucleus Financial Platforms group and we help make retirement more rewarding.

By harnessing James Hay’s pensions expertise and Nucleus’ digital capability, we’re building the best retirement-focused adviser platform for larger adviser firms in the UK. Together we're one of the leading, independent, adviser platform groups in the country.

Our vision

Best loved platform

We're currently building a new platform designed to be the best retirement-focused platform in the UK.

It's our vision that this becomes the best loved platform for advisers and their customers. We'll do this by harnessing the combined talent, expertise and capabilities of both Nucleus Financial and James Hay, in a commercial, ethical and sustainable way.

Our strength

Empowering advisers

We want to empower advisers to help them meet their clients' long-term financial planning needs. 

Our combined scale, and the profitability that comes with it, is enabling us to invest in products, technology, price and service that will support all advisers to deliver great value for their customers. 

Our history

The story so far

The Nucleus story as we know it today started over 40 years ago when we were more used to wearing platforms than creating them. Since then there have been a huge number of milestones and happy memories along the way. Take a look at just a few. 

Our shareholders

Continuous improvement

HPS Investment Partners, a major US private equity provider, is the majority shareholder of our parent company - the Nucleus Financial Platforms Group. In September 2022, they joined our existing shareholder Epiris, which has retained a significant minority stake. We're able to continue to innovate thanks to their investment support.
