Asset Allocation Comparison Tool

                       Asset Allocation comparison tool


Asset Allocation comparison is a new tool wherein, you will be able to compare Existing, Recommended, Strategic asset allocation for multiple portfolios owned by entities (client, partner, super, SMSF, company, trust). This tool is accessible from all screens of the Digital Advice strategy flow (available on the rebalance portfolio screen as ‘ Asset Allocation Comparison’ button and on 3 dot menu options on other Digital Advice screens).



On the left section of the tool, you will see all the portfolios name with the tick boxes grouped based on entity Client, Client’s Super, Partner, Partner’s super, Joint, SMSF, Company, and Trust. You have the option to select and deselect any portfolio or the underlying investment for comparison.


Allocation Type:

There are 3 types of Asset allocation- Existing, Recommended, and Strategic and you can select/deselect any by clicking on the header.


Strategic asset allocation uses client, partner, and super risk profiles. By default strategic profile will be selected that can be altered as per user requirements.



All the asset class values with all the Asset Allocation will also be available in a tabular form along with additional columns of Variance and Variance Percentage.


Variance is a percentage of Strategic Asset Allocation minus Recommended Allocation. This is presented in a form of a Bar Chart.
