OneVue partners with Spring Financial Group

OneVue is set to expand its SMSF footprint with the first of several new private label partnerships.

The wholesale superannuation solutions provider has announced its Platform Services capabilities will be leveraged by Spring FG Limited (Spring FG).

“Our core Platform Services capability will be used to administer SMSF assets with a focus on property for Spring FG,” OneVue Head of Platform Strategy, Sales and Service David Storm said.

“Unlike traditional platforms, OneVue has a specialist ability to administer the cash flow elements of direct residential and commercial property.”
Spring FG Managing Director Keith Cullen explained Spring was attracted to OneVue’s property asset administration capabilities.

“After an extensive review of platform options we’re delighted to partner with OneVue to deliver asset administration services for our SMSF and non-SMSF clients,” Cullen said.

Spring FG is the latest client to join OneVue’s platform with more than 200 SMSFs added in the past quarter, lifting Funds Under Administration (FUA).

“So far this year we’ve added around 500 SMSFs, with 250 of them coming from the award-winning SMSF Managers that OneVue purchased in May,” Storm added.

“We’re working with a number of new and existing clients who are looking at our functionality to deliver property asset administration solutions.”

OneVue and IMAP educate on managed accounts

OneVue will play a lead role in industry education on the rapidly growing managed accounts sector.

The wholesale superannuation solutions provider today announced it has renewed its sponsorship of the industry’s peak body, the Institute of Managed Account Professionals (IMAP).

OneVue head of platform strategy, sales and service David Storm said: “It’s important for us to work with groups such as IMAP and take a leadership position in the promotion, participation and education of managed accounts.”

According to Storm many advisers have expressed an interest in managed accounts, but are daunted by the range and complexity of products available.

“Many advisers struggle with managed accounts as they don’t have experience with them, but those who do, say more transparency, less admin and accessibility are reasons for use.”

“Managed accounts aren’t just marketed at high-net-worth individuals as they were in the mid-1990s, they now target the average investor,” Storm added.

The managed accounts space is now valued in excess of $15 billion, and considered a significant part of the retail investor market.

IMAP chief executive Toby Potter said he was thrilled to have OneVue’s support as the industry evolves.

ASIC ruling will promote development of Managed Accounts - says IMAP

12 August 2014

IMAP believes ASIC ruling will promote development of Managed Accounts.

Will substantially reduce the compliance burden for advisers re MDAs.

The Institute of Managed Account Professionals (IMAP) has welcomed ASIC clarifying its interpretation of the circumstances in which an SMSF trustee can be treated as a wholesale client. The general test which can now apply means that an SMSF trustee is a wholesale client if a certificate is available from a qualifying accountant that the trustee has net assets of $2.5m or income of over $250,000 for two years. 

In their announcement released on 8 August 2014, ASIC states that its “…revised approach means that … if the person providing the advice determines… the trustee is (personally) a wholesale client based on the general test…” then the adviser can treat the SMSF trustee as a wholesale client.
