Winterflood is delighted to have successfully enabled retail investor access to the issue of the new 4% 2031 gilt through its Winterflood Retail Access Platform (WRAP). WRAP was used by Hargreaves Lansdown and Interactive Investor to provide retail investors with the opportunity to access the new gilt at the average price in the auction.

Enabling retail access to new gilt issues is a key step towards providing private investors wider access to both debt and equity securities. Winterflood is proud to champion this initiative with our partner platforms and is committed to encouraging inclusion for all investors.

WRAP is an end-to-end distribution platform that connects issuers with retail investors via retail intermediaries.
