You can now use Macquarie Authenticator to verify certain tasks on Adviser Online. This is just the start of how we’ll be enabling your clients to authorise certain actions and transactions you submit on their behalf next year.

We're also upgrading some Cash Management Account systems this weekend, which is an exciting and important upgrade that forms part of our ongoing commitment to continually enhancing our platform technology and will provide improved platform stability. Learn more below. 

We're upgrading some Cash Management Account systems this weekend


There is a planned system upgrade set to occur on Saturday 4 December and Sunday 5 December.


During this weekend, some Cash and Wrap functions including cash online applications, payments, portfolio transacting, online reporting and account balance information will be temporarily unavailable. Your clients may also have some interruption to their online Cash and Wrap services during this time.

Please try to avoid logging into the adviser portal over this weekend, as your online experience may be disrupted. 

Migrating our Cash Management Accounts to the Cloud - Why this upgrade is important 

This is an exciting and important upgrade that forms part of our ongoing commitment to continually enhancing our platform technology and will provide improved platform stability. Similar to when we migrated our Wrap platform to the Cloud in August, upgrades like this one help to deliver improved platform performance, resilience, and security, and is a significant step towards unlocking all the other benefits that will come with a Cloud-based platform solution. 

There is a planned system upgrade set to occur on Saturday 4 December and Sunday 5 December.

What's next?

Soon you’ll be able to submit ad-hoc pension payments and withdrawals via Adviser Online

We’ve heard your feedback to digitise this process and give you more control and flexibility with initiating pension payments for your clients.

From December, you’ll be able to submit ad hoc pension payments and lump sum withdrawals up to $30k via Adviser Online without a client signature.

Payments will be paid directly into your client’s nominated bank account which is currently set up to receive regular pension payments. As part of this new process, the request will also show in Request Centre for tracking. Payments will typically be made within three business days.

We have provided a Product Update for this new feature, which is available at This Product Update should be provided to new clients along with the Product Disclosure Statement.

When this feature becomes available, you will be informed when you login to Adviser Online. Before using this on behalf of your clients, you should inform them of the changes (via the Product Update) and obtain the relevant consent for your records.

Improving our online application experience to reduce follow-ups and enhance security

We’re removing the Application Management section from our online Cash Management Application (CMA) application with new features to improve your client’s experience with receiving the approval email.
