BT Panorama is an intuitive operating system, the first of its kind, and is transforming the management of investment portfolios and self-managed super funds.

It now includes a complete SMSF offering for advisers, accountants and clients with its administration capability offering now fully rounded out.

“We know SMSFs have additional layers of responsibility because they are self-managed, so simple solutions with ease and functionality are top of mind,” Mr Lawrenson said.

The recent launch of BT Invest and Self-Managed Super Funds on BT Panorama complements the existing cash, term deposits and managed fund offerings.

“Additionally BT Panorama’s integration with Westpac Live means our customers can now manage their wealth and banking side by side.

Mr Lawrenson was joined by Jo Moxey, BT Head of Adviser Distribution who discussed the latest developments around BT’s Panorama Investment and SMSF solution, including how to drive efficiencies with adviser’s businesses and their clients.

BT General Manager, Platforms and Investments, John Shuttleworth said these latest developments build on BT Panorama’s success due to its advanced technology and customer-led design.

“BT Panorama is meeting the needs of the evolving client-adviser relationship - where clients are demanding more control and advisers need smart tools that demonstrate value and save time.

“The future looks bright and there is more to come with BT Panorama this year. It’s full steam ahead and we’re working to deliver tailored model portfolios and additional portfolio construction capability in the coming months. We will also have available a complete superannuation offering by the end of the year,” Mr Shuttleworth said.

According to a recent report from Investment Trends* advisers are seeking platforms that offer better support for their business. BT Panorama is the most sought after in the industry among those looking to make a platform switch.
