    • If you're applying for an Investment account you have the option to set up your client investor status as retail or wholesale. Where the client's investor status is retail, you will need to confirm personal advice has been provided recommending the applicant's acquire the product

You can make amendments to Wrap applications via Adviser Online:

  1. Log in to Adviser Online
  2. Select Applications and click Wrap pending applications
  3. Select the application you want to amend
  4. Click through to Stage 6 and select Make changes.

This will allow you to edit the application. As mentioned above, your client will still need to sign the final version before it can be submitted successfully

For print, sign and upload applications, anything marked with a red asterisk in the initial stages will be locked after you’ve printed the application. If you or your client want to make any changes, select Make changes in the application screen. Please note that this will void the previous version of the application and require your client to re sign the new version created.   

We won’t accept any amendments made in pen or pencil under any circumstances. 

Once your client’s signed application has been submitted, any further amendments will void the application. When this happens, you’ll need to create a new application. 

What happens next?

We’ll process the application and open the account provided the account details are correct and your client passes the required AML verification steps. 

Once the account is open, we’ll send a welcome email to your client so they can view their account information online.
