PLATFORMS & SECURITY
Highest level of Security for our clients
Our business model is structured to provide the highest level of security for clients. This includes segregation of client accounts and utilising industry leading strategic partners for certain functions such as securities dealing and settlements, cash management and custody assets.
Share Market Services
For client convenience Medallion Financial will look to facilitate portfolio transactions through a number of trading platforms including CommSec, NAB and Open Markets. In each instance clients will have their own segregated trading account, HIN and cash settlement account established with one of Australia’s leading banking institutions.
We also offer clients automated portfolio administration and reporting services through various wealth management platforms. By mitigating the burden of administration of your investment portfolio, you and your adviser can focus on the more important matters.
Bonds which are purchased over-the-counter (OTC) are required to be held with a licensed custodian until the bond matures or the investor decides to sell.
As CHESS does not cater for OTC bonds, Medallion uses the custodial services provided by the National Australia Bank (NAB) who hold an electronic record of an investor’s beneficial ownership of a bond.
NAB will also provide a range of services including account administration, transaction settlements and reporting.
Compliance & Monitoring
We are regulated by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission
(ASIC) and as such we maintain risk and compliance practices to provide appropriate oversight and compliance with the requirements of a Corporate authorised representative of an Australian Financial Services Licence provider.
