IOOF said Advice net inflows included around $400 million of transfers from IOOF BT badges to BT’s recently restructured direct offer, BT Wrap Open. It said the total revenue impact is less than $1 million on an annualised basis.

Earlier this month, IOOF launched a new BT Wrap Solution, Insignia Wrap and Insignia SuperWrap, which it said has identical pricing to BT Wrap Open.

In addition to Insignia Wrap and Insignia SuperWrap, IOOF said it will offer adjusted pricing on its badged version of Panorama from November 2018. It estimated the revenue impact of launching new BT badges at around $7 million in fiscal 2019.

IOOF said Investment Management net outflows stood at $134 million, down from $152 million previously and also reflecting the timing effect of distributions.

IOOF managing director, Christopher Kelaher, described the continued significant inflows into the financial services firm’s proprietary platforms as “a very pleasing outcome in an extremely competitive environment”.

“We differentiate our platform offering by exceeding our clients’ expectations with superior service, which is delivering inflows,” he said.

So platform inflows are down 8% and advice inflows are down 77%?

One wonders how much worse it will get if they have to stop using their deceptive "independent" advice brands like Bridges and Shadforths.
