In the March 2018 Strategic Insights quarterly platform market update, Netwealth said it achieved the highest platform flows for the year ended March, gaining $4.6 billion of total net flows.

The platform provider also said it would be taking advantage of current favourable industry trends by increasing its investments in its distribution team, while also adding an additional IT development team focused on data analytics and artificial intelligence.

Netwealth said its administration fee for the quarter of 48.5 per cent of net flows was lower than recent quarters due to an increased proportion of net flows coming from higher-value wrap accounts where balances exceed the fee cap.
