We are pleased to confirm that after a successful pilot migration we will now continue with the migration of all Wrap and SuperWrap clients to BT Panorama.
As our master relationship agreement with IOOF has been terminated by agreement, we will now communicate with you directly in relation to the migration of your clients to BT Panorama.
All support services associated with your clients' use of BT Platforms will continue to be delivered to you by BT and we look forward to working directly with you into the future. You can continue to use your current platforms as usual. On migration your clients with Wrap or SuperWrap accounts will be transferred to the BT Panorama platform.
We are holding a migration briefing session via live webinar for advisers who use the IOOF Wrap Badges, to provide an overview of the steps we will take in order to complete the Wrap to BT Panorama migration. This session will also provide you with an opportunity to ask questions.
We will implement the Wrap to BT Panorama migration in tranches with the next tranche due to occur in the first quarter of 2021.
Most clients who are part of the IOOF group will be transferred to BT Panorama in our fourth tranche, currently planned to be no later than June 2021. Your clients in non IOOF badges may be transferred earlier, in the second or third tranches which we are anticipating being in the first quarter 2021.
Migration from the existing Wrap platform to BT Panorama will provide you and your clients with access to BT’s contemporary wealth management platform with all of its benefits, including flexible investment options, in-depth reporting, customised online experience, the BT Panorama mobile app, a range of managed account solutions and digital creation and client consent for ROAs.
Existing pricing arrangements for Wrap clients will be assessed ahead of the intended migration of their account. These pricing arrangements will either be maintained, or clients may be reduced to BT Open pricing depending on which option delivers a lower administration fee at the time of our assessment. More information on pricing will be provided to you over the coming months.
We look forward to engaging with you in the new year to provide support for you, your teams and your clients through migration.
We will be aiming to minimise disruption to you and your practice as much as possible, though we do recognise that the proposed migration may bring about changes to your operating model.
Our dedicated team has been preparing for this transition for some time and are ready to support you and your practice. Please reach out to us if you need assistance.
Details for each tranche are being finalised, however we are aiming to complete all tranches by mid-2021. We will provide additional information, including advance notice of any communications being sent to clients, as we progress our final planning and internal approvals.
You will be notified in advance of each tranche if you have clients who will be transferred in that tranche.
More information on Wrap to Panorama migration is available via our main migration hub.
