Press release

Milliman and Netwealth deliver a unique and affordable investment solution, for advisers and their clients

Milliman, Inc. a global consulting and actuarial firm, has formed a strategic alliance with Netwealth, Australia’s largest non-institutional platform provider, in a significant move which aims to widen the distribution and availability to Australians, of its first range of managed account portfolios with in-built protection, to dampen the effects of market volatility and potential for capital losses.


Spending patterns — providing comfort to retirees in a volatile market

The faster-than-expected drop-off in retiree spending casts doubt on some common rules of thumb and suggests that financial plans for retirees that assume a steady or increasing spending over time may be conservative relative to actual behaviour.

SmartShield is available on the following platforms

Please contact your platform BDM for more information or alternatively, you can contact Milliman below.


Demonstrating SmartShield to your clients

We have designed a complementary digital tool, to help you have better, more personalised client conversations, when discussing the suitability of SmartShield with your clients.

Simple to use, the tool is powered by Milliman’s financial modelling platform, running thousands of simulations to present you with robust scenarios, for each SmartShield Managed Account portfolio.
