High valuation, yes, but the increased investment during the last year positions the business well for growth in the years ahead. Broker forecasts for YE 2020 suggests EPS of c. 70p, holding today's PE rating at today's opening price would translate into an share price of c. £28.65 - c. 41% higher in 2 years time.

I'll stay at HL but today i sold my holding for a 88% profit which reflected an annual profit of 22%. I an also pleased with the performance of the UK Select fund which i will continue to hold. Good company which may enter my portfolio again.

HL priced for perfection surely.I switched to AJ Bell a couple years back and think the service is at least as good and is cheaper.

Citi: "Any reduction in exit fees would likely only have a small impact on earnings for platforms such as Hargreaves Lansdown. But increased ease of transfer between platforms could lead to a lower retention rate (i.e. lower net flows). This has been stable, and high, at around 93% for many years. More transparency of pricing could also bring the relatively higher costs of platforms such as HL into consumer focus."

Barclays: "The FCA found that customers who pay more for their platform tend to get greater functionality on average, and the FCA did not observe widespread instances of consumers paying more for no good reason. We believe this is the key point, the FCA not proposing any pricing actions, and highlighting that the more expensive platforms like Hargreaves do offer greater functionality. In our view, it is the quality and ease of use of the Hargreaves platform that results in its high customer satisfaction driving its market share and growth, and hence its PE rating (of 34x, towards the top end of its historical range), and we reiterate our Overweight rating with price target of 2100p." "We highlight that in our view, the impact on Hargreaves Lansdown is minimal. While they may be on the higher end of spectrum in terms of pricing, the quality and use of the platform offers results in high consumer satisfaction driving its market share and growth. Revenues earned from exit fees are immaterial and hence any ban on such charges would not materially impact its bottom line. Being the largest player in the D2C platform market, Hargreaves is able to negotiate good fund discounts as we have previously written about but this unsurprising and natural for a market leader. It benefits the end customer and has limited impact on competition among asset managers. Hargreaves has also been innovative in its cash offerings which include Simple Invest and Active savings and have provided relatively good disclosures regarding charges on cash holdings."

Suspect this is a storm in a tea cup. How many actually look to move in reality? HL. are reknowned for their service, so they are presumably likely to be net beneficiaries. FCA might be better focusing on ring fenced protection (as suggested above), or perhaps providers that have really punitive exit penalties.... Update: HL comment on switching: Chris Hill, its chief executive, said: “Hargreaves Lansdown has been at the forefront of making transfers of investments and pensions easier and quicker and, as an example, we chair the industry’s working group on transfers mentioned in the FCA’s report. We welcome the FCA’s focus on switching between providers and hope this accelerates the adoption of technology across the industry enabling people to switch more easily.” Analysts divided on HL: hxxps://portfolio-adviser.com/analysts-divided-on-hargreaves-ahead-of-platform-study/ 'Numis Securities agrees Hargreaves is a “structural growth story” and should remain so “possibly for decades to come”. The broker said it expects Hargreaves and other D2C retailers to benefit from two structural drivers: the shift from institutionally managed defined benefit pension schemes to retail managed defined contribution schemes and the shift to individually managed portfolios away from adviser-managed wealth. “We see these core growth drivers delivering teens percent growth for a generation even if HL doesn’t continue to take market share”.'

People stay with HL due to the superior service. Dont think this will have too much impact on HL. I sold my lot at £18.00 (not very good i know) so if this news drives them down to that level id be happy to pick them back up.

- Shares of Hargreaves Lansdown fell Monday after the Financial Conduct Authority said it was considering banning companies from charging exit fees which make it too difficult for customers to take their business elsewhere. 'Many advisers told us that they charge additional advice fees for switching platform because it is a full advice event which requires them to produce a suitability report, the FCA wrote.' 'We recognise advisers need to be fairly paid for their work. But it is not clear to us why meeting suitability requirements to switch platforms should outweigh the benefits of switching platform.' At 9:09am: [LON:HL.] Hargreaves Lansdown PLC share price was -86.75p at 1970.25p

Thats all well and good but 100 pct protection for investors ring fenced holdings within nominee accounts would be far better received.

The FCA have released their Investment Platform Market Study today: Https://www.fca.org.uk/publication/market-studies/ms17-1-2.pdf They indicate that they may consider banning exit fees for platform switches: Https://www.moneymarketing.co.uk/fca-mulls-exit-fee-ban-for-platform-switches/ Update: Analyst Stuart Duncan at Peel Hunt said that after his initial read of the 110-page report, it "looks relatively benign for sector, with none of the proposals likely to cause too much concern". He noted that the FCA had found no widespread evidence of overcharging and that a key conclusion was that there that no widespread competition concerns and no findings of excess profitability.

Only just over a month to go until the results.... Nucleus, a comparative tiddler, is due to float later this month. It operates an independent wrap platform serving the IFA market (2,200 advisor users, £14.3bn AUA and 90,000 customers): Https://investegate.co.uk/nucleus-financial-gp/rns/intention-to-float/201807020700061595T/ Of interest is the growth Fundscape anticipates in the advised platform market over the next few years: 'Platforms as a tool for retail distribution of financial products have become increasingly important. Accordingly, between 2012 and 2017, total AUA across the advised platform market grew at a compound annual growth rate of 23 per cent., to reach £350 billion. AUA is projected to grow by a further 113 per cent. to £745 billion by 31 December 2021 (Source: Fundscape Platform Market Report Q3 2017's 'Realistic Channel Projections').'

They have finally got around to acknowledging prices are incorrect but only on the individual share analysis and not on the summary page. Not sure why it has taken 24 hours to let customers know. The 15 minute delay price was wrong all yesterday.

Same for me as well. Pretty poor that they haven't put a message or pop up on their site to advise clients. I checked their twitter feed but that had no mention either.
