Read about recent updates to our wrap, CMA and Macquarie Online Trading platform.

What’s new with SMAs?

Previously only available to IDPS clients, the SMA switch functionality is now also available for your super and pension clients. You won’t have to sell down all underlying assets from your clients’ existing SMA to fund the purchase of a new SMA.

This means you can keep your clients invested in the market and can move to the new SMA faster. Additionally, no CGT event is triggered if securities are retained as part of the selected SMA portfolio.

We’re continuing to make significant investment into our SMA offering to better support you with implementing SMA strategies for your clients. Here’s a reminder of other SMA enhancements we’ve made recently:

  • Enhanced Portfolio Review Report (PRR) to show the performance for SMAs listed in the report
  • Better tailor your client’s SMA by accommodating for unique personal preferences with SMA customisations.

To learn more about the above changes we’ve made to our SMA offering, see our article.

A more timely account view in third party providers’ (TPP) software

We know how important connectivity is in how you run your business and demonstrate value to your clients. We have a range of technical capability which is adopted by various Third Party Providers (TPPs) across the financial services landscape.

We’re continually investing in our solutions and by upgrading our esi data feeds, your client’s data is now more readily available for you and your clients to view and interact with in a TPP’s software. You may see the data appear in a TPP’s software quicker than before, so you can take action on your clients’ accounts right away if needed.

Adviser Online continues to evolve based on your feedback

This month, we’ve updated the account list export functionality so the report includes the ledger balance. This means a more complete overview of your clients’ accounts in one report.

We’ve also added a link to the Macquarie Online Trading (MOT) portal on the navigation menu in Adviser Online. You won’t have to log into the MOT portal separately; through Adviser Online, you’ll be able to easily go from your clients’ cash management accounts to their MOT accounts when you need to.

If you have feedback on how we can improve Adviser Online for you, we want to hear it. Please share your comments with us via the portal by selecting ‘Feedback’ from the main menu or by speaking to your relationship manager.
