1. Transfer cash and any assets into a managed account for your clients online via the managed account transfer tool.

Advisers who recommend any of our managed accounts to their clients now have a number of online tools to manage the move into a Managed Account.

The Managed Account Planner tool enables you to model the outcome of transferring existing platform account assets into the managed account model(s) of your choosing. It lists the trades that would result from transferring the selected assets into the managed account and rebalancing to the selected model asset allocation.

This allows you to evaluate the expected trades and assess the associated transaction costs of transferring assets into the managed account.

The Managed Account Transfer tool allows advisers to transfer assets and cash from the platform into one or more existing and/or new managed account model(s).

To access these tools, navigate to: Client > Client Details > Investment Preferences, where you will now find three tabs.

Assets can be transferred online by following these steps:

1. Click the Transfer to Managed Account tab and choose to transfer a dollar amount or unit amount per asset.

  • To transfer all units and cash select the 'ALL' check box at the top right of the page
  • To select individual tax parcels to transfer use the 'Show Holding' link at the bottom left of the page.
  • Any assets that are not compatible with the managed account will not be available for selection on the page and will be greyed-out (these can be sold prior to transfer/left outside the managed account).

2. Admin updates

Remove clients you are no longer servicing from your Netwealth account

You now have the ability to remove clients you are no longer servicing from your Netwealth account.

To do this, search for the client you want to remove from your account. Once you have chosen your client go to Manage Fees > Update Fees/ Release.

A change to the way passwords are issued and reissued to clients

For security reasons we have removed the process in which we issue temporary passwords to new website client users. A client will now be provided with a username in their Netwealth welcome letter and they can then proceed to set their own password online. Clients will now require a mobile number or email address attached to their account to complete their login successfully. Enhanced security measures also include the issue of a unique code to their selected email or mobile and the completion of security questions.

Netwealth will also no longer have the ability to reissue passwords. If your client has forgotten their password, please provide them with their username and direct them to the login page on the Netwealth website where they can click 'Forgot your password?'.

Please note there are no changes to the way adviser and adviser administration usernames and passwords are issued or reissued. These requests can continue to be sent directly to Netwealth.
