Oasis' share trading facility
|The share trading facility is available for advisers on the Oasis Asset Management administration platform. It offers real-time trading and full web-based corporate action management.|
Advisers are able to use this service to place instructions to buy and sell shares directly in the market, take up any corporate actions that may affect their clients’ holdings, view clients’ share holdings and peruse live Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) data.
Advisers can place at market orders while the ASX market is open and at limit orders at any time receiving electronic confirmation of the transaction.
The cornerstone of the solution is the individual Holder Identification Number (HIN) structure. This means that Oasis will maintain a separate HIN for each individual client, which allows advisers to maintain complete control of their clients’ share holdings.
Accessed via MoneyOne® Online, trading is performed using Oasis’ default online broker, Australian Investment Exchange Ltd (AUSIEX), or by trading off-line with any of the supported panel brokers.
