Having the right technology behind you is a given, but it is just as important to ensure that technology works seamlessly with your business and does not itself become a burden.
Introducing Centra - Designed by advisers, for advisers
Centra is The SimplyBiz Group's market-leading end-to-end financial planning tool which seamlessly encapsulates risk profiling, research, and suitability reporting into one easy to use system. Powered by Defaqto, Centra is a true one-stop solution for advisers and what’s more - we provide this complimentary for our Members.
Technology doesn’t stand still and that’s the same for Centra, continually developing. In 2020 alone, we added ESG reviews, DC Pension Switching tool, video conferencing and Defaqto's new ATR questionnaire.
Over the past few years, the demand for ESG investments has grown significantly. As a result, advisers need access to reliable and credible ESG fund research. We have launched ESG Reviews in Centra to provide you with an easy way to access the data you need.
