Improving business efficiency with FirstChoice Managed Accounts

Meet your clients’ investment needs with a simple, professional portfolio management solution – at no extra cost to you or them.

Since launching FirstChoice Managed Accounts in 2018, we’ve seen a surge in popularity, recently reaching $2 billion in funds under management. We owe this achievement to the support of licensees and advisers.


FirstChoice Managed Accounts combines the simplicity and scalability of FirstChoice with the control and flexibility you need - without having to transform how you run your business. Giving you more time to focus on your clients. It provides you:

Simplicity Efficiency More time for meaningful conversations

Your licensee can construct your FirstChoice Managed Accounts portfolios using the entire FirstChoice Super and Pension investment menu – that’s more than 130 investment options.


The FirstChoice Wholesale Product Disclosure Statement and managed account investment guidelines can help you manage investment risk and simplify the investment governance and set up requirements associated with a licensee establishing their own managed account portfolios.

Once your FirstChoice Managed Accounts are set up, portfolio changes flow through to your clients’ accounts automatically generally without the need to prepare lengthy advice documentation like Records of Advice (ROAs). With Colonial First State taking care of portfolio rebalancing and implementation of portfolio changes, none of your clients will be left behind. With less time spent on administration and chasing up clients to approve portfolio changes, you will be able to focus on more valuable activities. You can use this time to have meaningful, value-adding conversations with your clients – or to follow up new opportunities to grow your business.


Work with your licensee and us to develop an efficient portfolio solution for your clients that gives you more time to focus on your clients and growing your business.
