Your questions answered

Here you can find questions and answers on topics we think will be important to you. We will continue to update these so we encourage you to check back here regularly to get the very latest information.

Your service will continue essentially as it was before but will now be run on an updated version of the JHC Figaro platform. This will bring improvements in stability, efficiency and scalability of your service. It will also provide a more robust base from which Embark can develop for the future.

Your service should continue essentially as it is now. Your fees and charges will remain the same. If your fees and charges change in the future, we will give you notice of this in line with our Terms & Conditions.

If you decide you don’t want to accept Embark’s Terms of Service you are free to move to another provider. We require an instruction from your new provider to enable us to process a transfer.

Only Advisers/Agents who have not already done so are required to complete and return the registration form. If you are required to complete the form ATS will have signposted this in the letter you received from them.

You may only have been asked to read the new Terms and Conditions that will now apply.
