Forward Thinking Magazine : August 2010
b Welcome Tony Graham Executive Director Head of Macquarie Adviser Services Macquarie Adviser Services magazine In a rapidly changing industry it’s hard to predict ‘what’s next?’ This issue of Forward Thinking provides some insights into how the insurance industry is changing. In our article Insurance revolution on page 2 we chat to a number of advisers, a doctor, and a reinsurer to gain their insights and also look at how it’s shaped our new product Macquarie Life Active. On page 10, David Barrett from our technical team, MAStech, continues his strategic insight series into Expatriate games - part V. We also delve into three practices on page 22 in A roadmap for best practice advisory business to see how some advisers are developing best practice within their businesses. In terms of our business, we are pleased to be recognised in the 2010 Annual Brand Tracking report from Wealth Insights*. Macquarie Wrap topped the list of platforms an adviser would consider if looking for a new provider. Further to this, the report also revealed that respondents consider Macquarie Wrap to be the most innovative platform. Macquarie Wrap also scored highly when it came to being held in high regard, reliability and its administrative functions. Our cash team have just completed the enormous task of transferring the Macquarie CMT to the Macquarie Cash Management Account. Our mortgages team have also launched a new range of home loan products designed for borrowers who want to use their mortgage as a central part of their wealth creation strategy. We remain focussed on supporting you with products and services that drive business efficiency, while helping you grow and protect your clients wealth. I hope you enjoy this edition of Forward Thinking. * Wealth Insights Annual Brand Tracking
