  • Seamless transition: Transitioning clients from accumulation to pension phase is easy and streamlined. Clients can build savings in their Panorama Super account before receiving a potentially more tax-effective income from their Panorama Pension account in retirement.

  • Invest for income: Select the investment options that best suit your client and their risk profile from either a compact or full investment menu including term deposits, equities, managed and tailored portfolios, and annuities.

  • Flexibility: Your clients can choose their desired pension payment date and frequency, and make partial withdrawals at any time as either an income payment or a lump sum.

  • Save on fees: Fee aggregation allows you to access savings by only paying one admin fee across all linked client accounts.

  • Estate planning options: Your clients can make non-lapsing beneficiary nominations, as well as auto-reversionary nominations with the flexibility of a secondary beneficiary nomination, for extra peace of mind.

  • Rich online functionality: Reduce your admin time by gaining digital consent from clients via SMS and email. Also access key information with intuitive dashboards and flexible, real time reporting.

The Government has set caps on the amount of money that you can add to your superannuation each year and over your lifetime on both a concessional and non-concessional tax basis.  There will be tax consequences if you breach these caps.  For more detail, speak with a registered tax agent or visit the ATO website.
