Direct share trading

Direct share trading - MoneyOne

The direct share trading facility is available for advisers on the Oasis Asset Management administration platform. It offers real-time trading and full web-based corporate action management.

Advisers will be able to use this new service to place instructions to buy and sell shares directly in the market, take up any corporate actions that may affect their clients’ holdings, view clients’ share holdings and peruse live ASX data.

Advisers can place orders at any time the ASX is open and receive electronic confirmation of the transaction.

The cornerstone of the solution is the individual Holder Identification Number (HIN) structure. This means that Oasis will maintain a separate HIN for each individual client, which allows advisers to maintain complete control of their clients’ share holdings.

Accessed via MoneyOne® Online, trading is performed by using Oasis’ default online broker, Australian Investment Exchange Ltd (AUSIEX), or by trading off-line with any of the six supported panel brokers.



Features for advisers' clients


  • Each client will be allocated an individual HIN, enabling full entitlement to corporate actions approved by Oasis.
  • Super/pension clients – Access to 200 or Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) listed shares, generally based on the S&P 200.
  • IDPS clients – access to all securities listed on the ASX, including warrants.
  • Ability to participate in issuer’s Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP) where available.
  • Trades will be settled by applying funds from the client’s cash account.
  • Contra trading supported – i.e. proceeds from sales can be used to fund purchases before the settlement money is received.
  • Advisers can trade via either the online broker or via one of the following supported external panel brokers (via phone/fax): JB Were, RBS Morgans, Bell Potter, Shaw Stockbroking, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney and Lonsec.
  • Online corporate action election and participation (advisers only - investors with trading access will not have access to this feature).

Who is Australian Investment Exchange Ltd?


Australian Investment Exchange Ltd (AUSIEX) is a leading provider of online broking services in the Australian market and is a wholly owned and non-guaranteed subsidiary of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia.

Structure


  • Individual accounts will be held by the custodian, with a separate account established for each member or investor.
  • The underlying registration of the account and HIN will be in the name of the custodian. All holdings are CHESS broker-sponsored. AUSIEX is the sponsoring broker (including all trades executed by an external panel broker).
  • Oasis will provide adviser details to AUSIEX in order for the adviser to be given access to the share trading facility.

Adviser licensing and authorisation


  • Advisers must be appropriately licensed through their dealer to provide advice and deal in listed securities and/or warrants.
  • New investors will be required to provide their adviser with standing authority to submit trading instructions on their behalf.
  • Before submitting an investment instruction on behalf of an existing client, the adviser must ensure that he or she is appropriately authorised by the client to submit that instruction. The adviser must also keep a record of that authority.

Adviser trading access


Step 1: Ensure that you have MoneyOne® Online access. If you do not, please contact Client Services, who will arrange this.

Step 2: Complete the 'MoneyOne adviser and share trading access' form:

  • This form not only allows you to establish share trading for yourself and/or office staff, but also allows you to nominate your office staff to have [trading or view only] access to your investors' accounts.
  • If you have multiple adviser accounts with one login code, share trading will be available on all adviser codes.
  • If you have a corporate account, you will need to provide the adviser name who will be using the corporate account login code. All other advisers and office staff should have their details provided in step 2 - linked user access request.
  • Accessing share trading will take approximately three working days once we have received the form.

  • Step 3: Complete the 'Share trading facility and adviser authority' form for any existing investors for whom you wish to perform share trading. For new investors, complete the 'Listed securities nomination and dividend election' section of the individual application form.
