Progress Report - March 2024

An illustrative graphic with a warm orange gradient background, titled 'Parmenion Progress Report'. There are four white outlined icons connected by a dotted arc: a star, an adjustment control with sliders, a checkmark inside a shield, and a line chart with an upward trend. Each icon is encircled and linked to emphasize progression. The design includes decorative elements such as small dots and sparkles, adding a festive or celebratory feel to the report.

Headlines this month

Welcome to our first Progress Report, designed to keep you updated on the service enhancements we’ve been working on.

Covering everything from platform developments to updates to our investment offering, this is your one stop shop to find out what we’ve delivered to make your and your clients’ lives easier.

We’ll also give you a sneak peek of what’s coming up and when you can expect to see them. Some of these things might change, be pushed back or get reprioritised depending on how complex they are, feedback from advisers, or if we need to pivot to new laws or regulations. But we’ll keep you posted here when this happens.

Without further ado, here’s March’s update, covering everything since the start of the year.

Feature Highlight

Updates to New Money Pending screen

You see what we see. We’ve made some big updates to the New Money Pending screen, making it easier to see the progress of your clients’ transfers.

With clearer, more consistent updates, you can see where the money is and when it was last chased. For in specie transfers you’ll also see a breakdown of individual fund progress, including conversions. 

New Money Pending

Enhanced CGT reporting

New realised gains report

Throughout the year we’ll be focusing on enhancing our CGT reporting. 

To start, we’ve updated the realised gains report with an option to include all GIA portfolios. Simply log in and find a client, then head to Reports, click on the Everything tab, then select realised gains.

Bulk realised gains reports

We can also generate Bulk realised gains reports for all your clients, at adviser and/or firm level,  in a .csv format.

To request a bulk realised gains report, please get in touch with

We’re looking to make these available directly from the platform after Tax Year end.

Your platform

What's happened?

Better data

  • The New Money Pending screen has been enhanced, so you can now see where the money is and when it was last chased. For in specie transfers you’ll also see a breakdown of individual fund progress, including conversions. You can also input a book cost yourself if we haven't received one from the other provider. More on this in the feature highlight above.
  • We’ve added new integrations for several new financial planning, back office and suitability and compliance systems. For the latest integrations head over to our Integrations page
  • We’ve updated your client’s Investment Report Packs to make them clearer. They’re now more streamlined with less repetition and unnecessary sections. Performance and asset allocation information has been improved (no more single colour donut charts!) and the Investment Summary section has been redesigned.

Digital first

  • Our mobile app is getting better and better. Since the start of the year, we’ve added performance information, the ability to update SIPP expression of wish - all this on top of stronger account security with MFA, and more. Find out more about the updates to our brilliant app here.
  • We’re reducing our reliance on paper. In February, we moved online clients to digital reporting. Most of our letters are also now digital for online customers (though we’ll still need to send some in the post for fraud prevention reasons).

Financial Planning

  • We’ve improved the realised gains report with an option to include all GIA portfolios. More in the feature highlight above.
  • We can also generate bulk realised gains reports for all your clients in a CSV format, upon request. More on this in the feature highlight too.
