CFS managed accounts on FirstWrap offer a series of professionally managed portfolios designed to deliver transparent, engaging advice solutions. If you’re looking to invest with portfolio managers to deliver efficient advice solutions, or looking to reduce administration requirements, CFS managed accounts on FirstWrap may be the answer.

A whole or part portfolio solution – the choice is yours

You can offer your clients exposure to different asset classes and investment styles, from single sector Australian shares to a fully diversified portfolio. So it’s possible to match a wide range of clients' goals, objectives and risk profiles to a portfolio – or a combination of portfolios - that will match their investment needs.

Trades within the portfolios are free from any brokerage fees, and the non-unitised structure helps provide your clients with transparency of their underlying investments. You can also set client preferences at account level to reflect your client’s ethical, social, tax or income preferences.

What does this mean for you? More time spent seeing clients, growing your business and developing strategies and less time on paperwork and routine administration.

Key features

Professionally managed portfolios

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.

Set client preferences

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, such as ethical and social considerations, tax, income or other preferences.

In-specie transfer

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

Nil brokerage is charged to clients when trading listed securities within the managed account portfolios.

Floating models

Floating models mean portfolio manager weightings move in line with the market and transactions are minimised.
