Premier Asset Management has launched a digital portal for advisers.
Called PremierConnect, the portal will aid advisers who want to access the asset manager's fund suite, which includes its 12-strong multi-asset range.
FNZ will provide the back office support for PremierConnect, which is scheduled to go live this summer.
The portal will offer advisers access to a range of tools which are designed to make their businesses run more efficienctly. These include 'look through' portfolio reporting, facilitating the payment of adviser charges and client illustrations, as well as real-time integration with a range of advisers’ own back office software.
There will be no additional costs for advisers or their clients to use PremierConnect.
Commenting on the launch, Premier chief executive Mike O'Shea (pictured) said advisers would be able to benefit from 'state of art reporting and information' through the portal.
'We believe the new digital offering will appeal to advisers investing directly with us by helping them offer a better service and value to their clients and to focus more of their time providing added value advice,' O'Shea said.
'As we continue to grow, driven in part by our top performing multi-asset range, it is vital that our business proposition is technology-based and appropriate for the digital age. Creating this type of modern portal for advisers dealing with us directly is an important part of our strategy.'
In its most recent trading update, Premier reported a net inflow of £236 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, its 19th successive quarter of positive inflows.
Total inflows for the year stood at £843 million, helping lift assets under management to £6.4 billion.
