Evaluating a brokers stability

In the UK, we have had previously Beaufort Securities and now SVS failing, is anyone evaluating their platforms?

If so, is there anything anybody would like to share about their platform for or against it’s level of stability?

What factors are worth considering and where would you find that information?

How does SVS and Beaufort Securities size compare to other more well known and not quite so well known platforms ?

Would Brexit likely have an effect on any of the platforms or are they internationally based that it wouldn’t be an issue?

Should you keep all investments with one platform below the country compensation limit or if you have more, should you consider splitting between platforms?

What would the likely outcome be if your platform was to fail?
