Note: If you are increasing, reducing or stopping a Direct Debit on a SIPP please call 0345 279 1001 to cancel and reinstate. Call charges will vary.

Frequently Asked Questions



How do I add a one-off or regular contribution

On the Wrap Platform, go to Create Orders > Existing Client New Business > Step Three. Add the contribution value under the desired product for single / regular payment.

If regular, select the frequency, collection date and for SIPP the Payee. Choose your payment method (please see above for Direct Debit and Collection Account details). Complete all other steps as normal.



How do I view my client’s contributions?

To view any active regular or single contributions on Wrap go to: Track Orders > Payments / Withdrawals. Hover over the “Amount (£) field to see when the next collection date is.

You can view any historic contributions go to: Performance > Money In.



How do I set up a one-off/regular withdrawal?

You can set up single or regular withdrawals from Wrap Cash, ISA and Personal Portfolio on Wrap. To do this go to: Create Orders > Withdrawals. Determine whether the withdrawal is a one-off or regular (if regular please choose a frequency) and select a payment date. Choose your tax wrapper, reason for withdrawal, value and how you wish to disinvest. Once happy, place and confirm the withdrawal.



How long does a platform withdrawal take?

  • External payment from Wrap / Product Cash – 4 working days
  • External payment from Investments – 10 working days
  • Internal payment from Product Cash to Wrap Cash – Same day
  • Internal payment from Investments to Wrap Cash – 6 working days



Why has my withdrawal failed?

Withdrawals often fail when there’s insufficient cash to pay out the required amount. Common scenario’s include:

  • Wrap monies are not ring-fenced, so cleared cash will be used to cover outstanding charges / negative balances even if it’s set aside for a client withdrawal
  • If you complete a withdrawal to disinvest across funds proportionately and one or more of the funds are suspended, it’s unlikely sufficient cash will generate to pay the withdrawal.
  • If the client is invested in a managed portfolio and the manager is carrying out trading (i.e. rebalances) across the portfolio, this can delay any subsequent Wrap trades placed on the platform. This can result in no payments or a lower amount going to the client.

For further information on why the withdrawal has failed, go to Track Orders > Payments/Withdrawals and hover over the payment amount. This will give you a description as to why the payment has failed.

Note: It is your responsibility to check the progress of client withdrawals and take remedial action to resolve.
