    We’re Nucleus

    The adviser-built wrap platform, supporting financial advisers in creating brilliant client outcomes.

    Nucleus is an award-winning online wrap platform, launched in 2006 in partnership with a group of financial adviser firms who set out to create a platform with a difference. We created a new model, putting the adviser and client at the heart of the process, focusing on a client-aligned approach rather than a product-led one, to develop a platform that was committed to transparency and banishing complexity.

    The platform allows advisers to combine all of their clients’ assets into a single, manageable online account. This enables portfolios to be viewed at a glance, allowing easy valuations and variations to be made.

    Today we work with over 800 adviser firms and continue to be driven by advisers. We provide an entirely independent wrap platform with access to a wide range of tax wrappers and an open architecture approach to investments. The platform is built on next-generation technology allowing it to scale and is backed by award-winning customer service.

    Corporate governance

    The executive management team and the board of directors recognise the value and importance of maintaining the highest standards of corporate governance and aim to comply with the principles set out in the UK QCA Corporate Governance Code. The QCA code sets out a standard of minimum best practice for small and medium-sized quoted companies, particularly AIM listed companies.

    The Board intends to meet regularly to review, formulate and approve, among other things, the Group’s strategy, system of internal controls, budgets and corporate actions. The Company has established an Audit Committee, Risk Committee, Nomination Committee and a Remuneration Committee with formally delegated duties and responsibilities and with written terms of reference. From time to time, separate committees may be set up by the Board to consider specific issues when the need arises.

    Audit committee

    The Audit Committee’s role is to assist the Board with the discharge of its responsibilities in relation to external and internal audits and controls, including in respect of the Group’s CASS arrangements and reviewing the Group’s annual financial statements.

    Nomination committee

    The Nomination Committee assists the Board in determining the composition and make-up of the Board. It is responsible for reviewing the Board’s structure and identifying potential candidates to be appointed as directors, and for making recommendations to the Board.

    Remuneration committee

    The Remuneration Committee recommends what policy the Board should adopt on executive and senior management remuneration. It will also make recommendations on proposals for the granting of share options and other equity incentive plans.

    Risk committee

    The Risk Committee advises the Board on the Group’s overall risk appetite and strategy, regularly reviewing and updating the risk assessment processes, including in relation to remuneration and compliance, and overseeing implementation of the strategy.
