Information For Investment Advisers

We have designed our service for advisers who seek investment support systems and processes that can accommodate the adviser’s (and their licensee’s) influence on the objectives, structure and holdings of the SMA portfolio.

Some of the results may include:

  • increased business efficiency (with potential to scale-up their business)
  • reduced administration and associated costs (potentially more time to provide service to clients)
  • reduced compliance burdens and associated costs (no need to SoAs to every client everytime there is a portfolio change)
  • demonstrable client advantages

Business efficiency – with SMA models advisers spend less time administering each client’s specific portfolio. This translates to a reduction in the total cost of servicing clients.

Less administration – clients receive the benefits of investing in shares without the adviser’s business impacted by the burden of providing administrative and compliance reporting, and managing each corporate actions individually

Unlike direct shares, with SMAs there’s no need to prepare a Statement of Advice (SOA) every time there’s a change to the shares held within the portfolio.

Investors are invariably looking to have more control over their portfolios and directly investing in shares is being taken up by more and more. SMAs provide this direct share ownership with the added advantages of allowing a broad range of the client’s other investments, and even their life cover, in the same place. This means portfolio reporting can be simpler and easier.

Clients have access to the system to view their individual share holdings held within their portfolio. They are also likely to pay lower brokerage costs than they would pay if trading shares directly and unlike managed funds, their tax position is unaffected by other investors as each investor establishes an individual cost base.
