Refer a client on the Digital Hub

Why has a new digital process to refer a client been put into place?

To give advisors real-time reference status tracking.

Where can I see the status of a referral?

Why is a cell phone number mandatory in the referral process?

Undertaking process for your clients' banking product overview

Why do we need to sign an undertaking form?

What undertaking do I need to sign?

If an advisor only has an insurance licence, can they see the overview of their clients’ banking products?

If I didn’t sign during my first log in, how can I sign the undertaking form to obtain access to the clients banking product overview in the Digital Hub?

Click on the profile tab located at the top right of the screen and select My profile and click on the Sign undertaking button.

Clients’ banking products overview

Where can I see my clients banking product overview?

Under the Clients tab, select your client’s name and then the Portfolio tab. The details of the products held by your client will appear.

Why am I unable to see the banking products held by my client?

Once you have signed the undertaking form, your clients must consent to sharing their information with you.

How can my clients provide consent for me to see the overview of their banking products?

For all
products held prior the launch of the Digital Hub, they can phone in to provide their consent. For all subsequent referrals made through the Digital Hub, they will be invited to give their consent by signing electronically.
