Perhaps the ultimate symbol of newspapers’ move from mass to elite: The Times (of London) is launching a wealth management service for its readers.

This week The Times and Sunday Times launches a new wealth management service — offering readers the opportunity to invest in a range of products such as ISAs, SIPPs, funds and Investment Trusts, together with access to expert advice and all at competitive rates.

Neil Martin, Business Development Director at News UK, said: “The launch of Times Wealth Management Services is an exciting milestone for The Times and Sunday Times. When it comes to money, trust is crucial and The Times and Sunday Times have been the papers of record for the latest money, investment and business news and advice for more than two hundred years, thus the titles are well placed to offer a competitive service that our readers are hugely interested in.”
