Frequently asked questions

What is a discretionary trust?

A discretionary trust is one where the trustee, (often a private family controlled company), enjoys the freedom to make choices over the control and allocation of assets and income for the benefit of the beneficiaries. This includes private investment portfolios. The trustee is the legal owner of the trust assets and the beneficiaries hold the beneficial interest in the trust assets.

What is a family trust?

Family trusts are a popular type of discretionary trust used to hold assets or run a family business. They are usually established to manage certain assets or investments and support beneficiaries. A family trust is passed on to the next generation of beneficiaries, making it an effective tool for holding inheritances.

Should I invest through a trust?

You should speak with your accountant or financial advisor before setting up any form of trust to make sure it's right for you.

Can I draw-down income for expenses?

Yes, you can elect to have quarterly income distributed to you.

Can I talk to an expert for advice?

Yes, you can speak with one of our expert investment advisers whenever you need. We can also help review your existing portfolio or work with your accountant on a transition plan. Schedule a call with our advisers.

How do you know which investment strategy is right for my trust?

Our custom questionnaire allows us to find out all the details we need to know about your situation. Then our smart algorithms recommend a portfolio that’s best suited to your trust’s preferences and goals. Find out more about our portfolios and portfolio returns.

How much does it cost?

Refer to Pricing to view the Stockspot fee tiers.

Fees are charged monthly based on the average balance in your account over the month. Fees cover the ongoing management and rebalancing your portfolio, annual reviews to ensure that it continues to be the most suitable for your situation, administration and tax reporting.

We don't charge extra for brokerage and there are no other hidden costs. ETF fees are an indirect cost of approximately 0.25% p.a and come out of the ETF price.

Is my money safe? How do I manage my portfolio?

Yes, all investments are held under your own unique HIN (Holder Identification Number) which identifies you as the holder. It’s the safest way to invest because the assets are always held by you. You can view and manage your portfolio via the Stockspot dashboard and app. See how Stockspot keeps your money safe.

What kind of reporting will I get at tax time?

You'll get a simple one page statement that merges all of your individual ETF tax statements into a single, easy to read document. This will allow you to complete your tax return via myTax or you can give it to your accountant. You’ll also get a range of other tax documents to help with reporting.
