The role of a trustee is to legally and morally manage the trusts property in a responsible and productive manner. It is under an absolute obligation to act solely for the benefit of account and member beneficiaries.

Xplore Wealth Limited is one of Australia’s largest institutional investment administration firms with over $14 billion in funds under administration. It provides automated and technological administration platforms to ensure accurate record keeping, transactional execution and access to information related to your superannuation and investment accounts at all times.

Investment Account and Superannuation Fund Auditing

To ensure compliance and accuracy records of the platform accounts administered by Xplore Limited, Cashel Family Office and the Trustee of each Cashel Family Office investment products uses the services of two global leading audit firms: KPMG and BDO.

Banking Platform Partners

Cashel Family Office uses the open banking platform of Macquarie Bank to manage the day to day transactional requirements of our clients. This unique partnership enables us to provide direct relationship management in the same form that an Australian private bank would without the conflict associated with providing debt and insurance products manufactured by that same bank.

Macquarie Group Limited through its Australian Government Guaranteed Bank subsidiary has been a leader in technology and banking platforms within Australia for some time, this strength is reflected in its market capitalisation of AUD$34.5 billion (April 2018).

Investment Research

Given Cashel’s Global investment universe, we have developed our own proprietary investment research management system RMS.

The Cashel RMS is unique in its ability to gather and standardise economic, investment, and risk factors that drive our actively managed investment models.

The Cashel RMS gathers information from a range of sources including:

  • Historical fund data from Lonsec and FE Analytics
  • Securities data from global exchanges, investment banks and research houses
  • Standardises Cashel interview and risk review processes of executives of securities and portfolio manages of funds we invest in
  • Stores historical economic data which is then used for forecasting
  • Consolidates opinions of whitelisted thought leaders, and
  • Manages supplier and sector participant surveys, including from many of our family office clients who operate in the sectors we invest in.

This proprietary system provides Cashel with a unique ability to maintain a live capital asset pricing model of asset classes, sectors, geographies and investments. Through this process, we are able to apply systematic trading disciplines to accurate price investments based on predicted risks and liquidity.

The result is a complementary discipline to our long-term strategic value-based actively managed asset allocation and investment selection process in order to meet the high standards expected of each of our family members.

Insurance Product Partnerships

Cashel Family Office provides personal insurance advice on the full range of providers. With our partners, we are also able to assist with a full range of health and general insurance needs.

Examples of these insurance provider partners include ClearView, OnePath, TAL, Zurich and MLC.

Financial Advice Systems

Given Cashel Family Office’s commitment to technology innovation and seamless client and advisor experience, we have built our own custom service solution using Microsoft technology as the bedrock of this. Through this, we have been able to build massive levels of automation and a platform that through machine learning will improve the strategic financial advice we can provide clients.

Debt Advice and Credit Assistance Systems

To deliver access to the Australian regulated lending systems and their debt products, Cashel Family Office has partnered with Connective and its technology platform Mercury to enable Cashel Family Office to act as mortgage broker and secure home and investment loans from over 45 Australian lenders. Through the Mercury and Microsoft open technology platforms, Cashel Family Office has been able to create consistency and one single consolidated client record for all our clients. A simple achievement that our Australian banking peers have yet to achieve.

Outside of the regulated lenders, Cashel Family Office uses its expertise to source bespoke debt solutions from both local and international debt providers. For further details please see Debt Advisory and Structuring.

Data Management and Automation Partners

To maintain our client records, automate the collection of these records (so as to reduce time and burden on clients), automate the ongoing maintenance of these records (with Business Intelligence and Machine Learning Tools) and to keep them safe and accessible only by clients (and only parties that our clients specifically want to access them, such as tax and legal advisers) we utilise a number of different security approved partners, both Australian and International.

Legal Service Partners

Cashel Family Office is selective to who it partners with to deliver exceptional value for wealth legal advice. One thing is important to us, as a family office our mentality is one of clients first, our partners must live the same values, even if that comes second to revenue. Where possible we utilise the knowledge of our clients to ensure that briefs to legal advisors are on point, to ensure that any discussions are spent dealing with strategy and contracting commercial outcomes.

Tax Advice and Accounting Partners

Cashel Family Office works with our clients existing tax and accounting providers, or as needed introduces new relationships subject to the needs of the client. Cashel believes strongly that proactive and accurate tax advice is a key element in both retaining and growing wealth.

Annually, Cashel Family Office is subject to financial and compliance audits by RSM.
