Client Strategies

Cradle to Grave

Australia’s population is ageing, with the proportion of people aged 75 or over expected to increase from about 6.4% to 14.4% of the population by 2060. This trend creates a need for financial planners to build a future stream of business for younger clients that will become full advice clients over time, but may only have simple advice needs when they first engage a planner.

Starting out

BT Compact Wrap is the perfect solution for investors just starting out. These clients are generally young, price-sensitive and looking to build wealth. So combine BT Compact Wrap with a regular investment plan into a Wholesale Plus Fund, for a cost-effective portfolio that can be easily transitioned to a full Wrap when the client’s needs change and grow. This allows you to engage with new clients, develop relationships and build foundations for the future. This could also assist you in retaining FUA when a transfer of wealth occurs from one client to another such as in the case of an inheritance.

Preferred Portfolios automatically rebalance, ensuring your client’s preferred investment strategy is maintained without you having to manually review the portfolio. This will allow you to take on new clients and provide value, while still leaving time to focus on your core business.

Life insurance clients

Compact Wrap is a great solution for clients whose main priority is cost-effective life insurance. While your client benefits from discounts on the whole suite of BT Protection Plans, having them on a platform also lays the foundation for gradually moving to a more holistic relationship over time.

BT Compact Wrap appeals to a range of clients, supporting a variety of growth strategies for your business. There is a whole new generation of clients who are looking to start investing but don’t need all features of a full Wrap. With its range of clear-cut benefits, BT Compact Wrap allows you to tap into this potential, delivering straightforward solutions and developing long-lasting relationships for the future.
