WHY INDIVIDUALLY MANAGED PORTFOLIOS IS THE BEST SOLUTION
Our Individually Managed Portfolio Service enables investors to purchase securities directly in their own names whilst received the benefits of professional management diversification and efficient reporting. IMP is supported by an exclusive 24/7 online reporting and recording database. This system enables investors to gain greater control over the investment process and make better informed decisions by having the right information at the right time. Investors are also provided with a client login function where they are able to view their portfolio in real time.
For over 15 years, our methods have provided well researched proven solution for managing investor funds to the advantage of our clients. How is this done?
No Ready-Made Portfolios
Model investment portfolios are available for references. However, each and every investment portfolio will be constructed and managed individually to match with the independent financial situation, investment objectives and risk tolerance of each client. As a result, client investments are purchased and sold in line with a client’s personal requirements and expectations.
100% Control Over All Assets
Clients own the investments in their own right. When selecting to invest via BRG’s Individually Managed Portfolio solution, you will be provided with added security knowing that you own your investments directly and in your own name or in the name of the entity that you chose to invest under. Over the years, we have found that many people come to us believing that they own their previously held investments directly only to find out that they were under a beneficial ownership arrangement. The differences are below:
When holding investment through beneficial ownership, an investor’s money will be held in trust which is accounted and administrated, at some cost, by a third party called trustee.
Consequently, investors cede control to the trustee who then determines to whom and in what proportion of income/assets of the trust are distributed.
As a third party, the trustee may be influenced by conflicts of interest and may might make decisions based on their own preferences.
You own all of the investments in your portfolio, in your own name, and enjoy owner benefits such as franking credits, withholding tax discounts and capital gains discounts.
BRG guarantees that our clients will have 100% control over their assets, this is evidenced by:
- No sign up to third-party operators
- Bank account is in investor’s name
- Contract notes of the sale and buy of specific assets are provided
Keep Updated On How Your Money Is Invested
BRG provides a secure 24/7 online tracking and monitoring system called PLUTO, which enables investors to see where they are invested and obtain real-time reports including CGT information, taxation information, income summaries, cash account summaries and transaction reports, holding reports, valuation reports and performance reports.
All reports are published using the daily pricing data and tax calculations so that investors are able to make more informed and timely investment decisions.
As every client’s portfolio is managed individually, tax only relates to their own income, expenses, profits and losses. As such, a client avoids paying tax on other people’s gains.
The tax effect on the portfolio of each sale is calculated when it occurs, rather than calculating tax at the end of the financial year. Consequently, the tax position of a client’s portfolio is constantly being updated. Therefore, a client is empowered of make time critical adjustments to maximise gains or minimise losses, depending on their current situation.
Tax calculations and reporting for all entities, including capital gains, foreign and domestic income are available 24/7 online.
While price data, shared trades, dividend payments and cash account transactions are automatically updated, BRG’s exceptional systems allow investors to track all financial aspects of their portfolios. Such information should enable easier and quicker accounting of Self-Managed Superannuation Funds.
In actively managing each portfolio individually, BRG works towards eliminating the under-performing shares that impact on the potential performance of a client’s overall portfolio return.
BRG is a Fee-For-Service practice so you only pay for the services you need. Exact cost will be outlined clearly beforehand and you will never have to pay for any commissions or hidden fees.
