What is ProductRex?

ProductRex is a free product research solution for financial advisers, paraplanners, administrators and anyone working in financial planning. ProductRex offers advisers a way to compare products and fees to help in the creation of their Statements of Advice and allows direct integrations with third party providers (such as Sharesight). With ProductRex advisers can:

  • Complete their product recommendations and research

  • Compare asset allocation and fees between products

  • Create easily customisable output that matches their SoA

  • Access data for 400+ super, pension and investment platforms.

ProductRex is the core of an adviser’s recommendation workflow, with the system being used before product recommendations have started, during the advice formulation process and directly before implementation of the advice.

Why has ProductRex connected to Sharesight?

Connecting to Sharesight opens up a world of possibilities in terms of data aggregation for financial advisers – with access to pricing and performance data for over 500,000 stocks, ETFs and funds, in addition to ProductRex’s existing data for super, pension and various other investment platforms. This is crucial for financial advisers looking to ProductRex to help them prepare their SoA.

"The integration partnership between ProductRex and Sharesight for professionals makes it easy for financial advisers to import share data directly from Sharesight into their scenarios, removing the need for manual data entry," says ProductRex founder Nick Topham.

"And for advisers new to Sharesight, gaining access to reports such as the Diversity Report or Historical Cost Report (a useful tool for SMSF reporting) is another time-saving resource that can assist advisers in formulating insights and communicating them with their clients."
