Hargreaves Lansdown has delayed announcing its retail distribution review pricing structure until early next year.
The discount broker had been set to unveil its unbundled charging structure at the end of this year, and will be required to implement the new structure from 6 April 2014.
It said in a statement to the market it said that the extra time would 'allow us to refine the Wealth 150 review and overall proposition so that we ensure we achieve the best results for our clients.'
Chief executive Ian Gorham (pictured) said: 'We note recent unfounded press speculation about Hargreaves Lansdown's pricing, but at this stage details of our final charges are yet to be confirmed.
'We are delighted with the results of our tender to fund managers seeking market leading fund charges for our clients.
'We look forward to announcing the pricing structure in early 2014 and implementing it before the regulatory deadline of 6 April 2014.'
Hargeraves has said its unbundled pricing structure will be tiered, and brokers at Barclays have speculated over the levels at which they would be set.
