Key benefits of using ASX

Access a variety of investment options across a range of asset classes and investment strategies.

Benefits for your clients

  • Achieve diversification across a range of asset classes. Via your broker, investors and advisers can access direct securities as well as actively and passively managed investment options that are available on ASX.
  • No administration fees. As most brokers charge per transaction, there are generally no ongoing administration fees, which can be particularly appealing for high net worth clients and Self-Managed Super Funds.
  • Products may offer different tax outcomes. Products may offer different tax outcomes, such as fully franked vs unfranked dividends. Utilizing these product traits in addition to your own tax-based trading recommendations can enable you to provide a variety of tax outcomes for your client.

Benefits for your practice

  • Efficient applications. Account establishment and identification for CHESS settled products is a once-off process. Future transactions for all cash market products and unlisted managed funds via the mFund service are managed electronically. No more paper forms.
  • All investments are held in one place. Investments held under a CHESS Holder Identification Number (HIN) are viewable online 24/7 by yourself and your client. This makes your record keeping and client servicing easy.
  • Transparency and settlement certainty. As most listed products are traded and settled on a T+2 basis, you can establish, rebalance and exit portfolios quite quickly.   
  • More time to focus on value-added advice. As product implementation is executed with efficiency, you have more capacity to focus on other services, such as:
    •  investment strategy and the construction of high-performing portfolios
    • deepening the advice relationship with your clients
    • developing specialist areas of expertise such as estate planning.        
  • Security and supervision. ASX markets and clearing and settlement facilities operate in a highly regulated environment, overseen by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission and the Reserve Bank of Australia.

A range of investment options for your client portfolios

Looking for a broker? 

There are a number of things to consider when you start looking for a broker to assist you with the services you provide to your clients. Financial advisers seeking the services of a broker should look to understand the quality of research provided, breadth of products offered, types of portfolio management tools, availability of datafeeds into other software, account access options for clients, fees, and the level of service provided. Lastly, you should ask if the broker is a Participant of the ASX.
