We offer a full suite of Wealth Management services including everything from Portfolio Administration and 24-hour Online Access, to SMSF Auditing, Accounting and Taxation Reporting Services.

Strategic Asset Management (SAM)

Our Strategic Asset Management (SAM) service enables your Investment Adviser to work closely with you to effectively and efficiently manage your investment portfolio.

The administration generated by a share portfolio is substantial, and time-consuming. There are Tax File Number (TFN) declarations, notices of shareholder meetings, direct credit payment forms, dividend reinvestment forms, not to mention dividend statements, CHESS statements, corporate action documents and all subsequent confirmations relating to each of these. That’s for each shareholding.

We can take delivery of all of your investment correspondence, handle each item as necessary, and alert you to anything that requires an investment decision or action.

We offer a full range of administrative services including the recording of dividend and distribution income, payment of tax bills and expenses relating to the portfolio, setting up of regular withdrawals, recording your TFN on each investment and direct crediting of all income payments into your Cash Management Account (CMA).

Once recorded, all of your documentation and correspondence is held securely in your client file for safe keeping and audit purposes.

Our SAM service is ideal for investors who are too busy to administer a portfolio or for those who have large portfolios who don’t have the time or inclination to keep on top of the substantial documentation.

Benefits at a Glance

  • Retained ownership and control - Unlike on some platforms, assets are held in your own name, so you retain control. This means assets can be transferred into or out of your portfolio without triggering a capital gains tax event.

  • Reduce your administration burden - You relinquish the time-consuming administration associated with an investment portfolio. Correspondence is handled on your behalf and we ensure you are notified of any action you need to take. Automatic settlement enhances the efficiency of your investment administration.

  • Cash Management - A linked Cash Management Account in your own name facilitates settlements, dividend and distribution income, tax payments, regular withdrawals and all other cashflow related to the portfolio.

  • Improved decision making - The reporting service provides your Investment Adviser access to up to date information relating to your portfolio in order to make informed decisions when analysing your portfolio and tax situation. It includes “what if” functionality to enable the assessment of various scenarios.

  • Comprehensive reporting - You will receive quarterly activity reporting and a comprehensive annual taxation report for your accounting needs. A full suite of reporting is available and can be provided upon request.

  • Dividends, distributions and corporate actions - You enjoy timely notification of all corporate actions and exclusive offers from our Corporate Finance Team. This ensures you do not miss out on any investment opportunities. Income and tax components from dividends and distributions are recorded and reconciled against your Cash Management Account.

  • Online access to your portfolio 24/7 - Portfolio information is available to you, your Investment Adviser and your Accountant online, 24 hours a day, updated daily.
