If you’re looking to invest with leading portfolio managers to deliver efficient advice solutions, or looking to reduce direct share administration requirements, Managed Accounts on FirstWrap may be the answer.

Trades within the portfolios are free from any brokerage fees, and the non-unitised structure allows your clients to maintain beneficial ownership, transparency and individual tax outcomes.

Key features

  • Professionally managed portfolios across different investment styles to meet your clients’ objectives, ranging from Australian core, high conviction, socially responsible, concentrated small cap, high yield and diversified portfolios.
  • Advisers can set client preferences at an account level, allowing the benefit of a streamlined business model while retaining the ability to cater for different client requirements (e.g. ethical and social considerations, tax or other preferences).
  • In-specie transfer existing listed security and managed fund holdings on to the FirstWrap platform, and then transfer into a managed account portfolio. This may reduce time out of market, without the need to sell down to cash before transferring. The existing cost base is retained.
  • Nil brokerage is charged to clients when trading within the managed account portfolios.
  • Floating models mean portfolio manager weightings move in line with the market and transactions are minimised.
