Frequently asked questions

Where can I see the full list of investments available on the investment platform?

You can see a full list of investments online when you login to your Panorama Investments account. If you know what you’re looking for you can search using the name, ASX code or fund (APIR) code. Otherwise, you can use our Investment Navigator to help you find your next investment.

You can open an account without making a cash deposit.

You can also find out more in the Choose your investment menu section above.

I already have a bank account, why do I need another?

At the heart of BT SMSF is your Panorama Investments account which includes an integrated cash management account (the BT CMA). All of your Panorama Investments transactions – including when you buy, sell or receive dividends – will be transacted through your BT CMA. Your Panorama Investments account fees will also be deducted from your BT CMA.

You can still keep any other bank or cash accounts you have for your SMSF. However it’s good to know that the more you use the BT CMA for your day-to-day SMSF transactions, the more you’ll get out of the smart tools and reports to help you track contributions, pensions, upcoming income and dividends.
