Product updates

A summary of our platform enhancements.

What's new

We are constantly looking at new way to enhance our platform to include a wider product offering, improved managed account service, better reporting, simplified transactions and more.

Below is a summary of our key product highlights. If you would like to learn more or to see them in action please speak with a BDM.

October - December 2020

Manage off-platform assets with XWrap

Almost 3 in 5 advice firms manage 25% of their clients' investment and super portfolios externally to the platform ('off-platform'), with a further 20% managing over half of their client's portfolio 'off-platform'*.

This creates the reporting challenge of getting a true understanding of a clients' portfolio, as well as the additional administrative overhead of using workaround systems when entering and managing external data. 

XWrap is Netwealth's solution to change this. We've simplified the process for recording 'off-platform' asset data for a client, including unit price history, income, fees and other transactions. We've also enhanced our reporting suite so you can use it to view XWrap data consolidated with Netwealth accounts or as stand-alone.

Optimise tax outcomes with CGT preferences at an account level

Instead of having to select preferred tax options for each parcel sold, you can now set a preferred tax option for sale at an account level. You can choose from First In First Out, Last In First Out, Maximise Gains or Minimise Gains methods for CGT calculations. This can be set via Client Details > Account Settings > Tax Preference.

Redesigned annual super statements

We've refreshed the look of our annual super statements to give your clients a clearer view of their super account. The new design features:

  • charts & graphs
  • portfolio performance indicators
  • grouped transactions
  • a checklist that highlights missing important personal information
  • and other enhancements to make the statement easier to use.

Other important enhancements

  • Determine the CGT impact before making an asset sale: In addition to setting tax preferences, the CGT tax impact can be viewed prior to sale on the Switch webpage, Trade Proposal PDF and Trade Summary PDF.
  • Streamline BPAY payments to the ATO and ASIC: Scheduled payments to the ATO and ASIC will no longer require two-factor authentication from clients.
July - September 2020

Sell managed funds without disrupting asset allocation

With our new 'Pro-rata' sell option you can set a fixed total sales amount and the selected managed funds will sell down at the percentage they are held. Go to Buy & Sell assets>Switch assets and select 'Pro-rata' from the drop down in horizontal calculator at the top.

See the total value for a specific category of cash transactions

A “Transactions by type” summary has been added to the Client Cash Transaction Listing Report to show the total value of each transaction type for a chosen date range.
