Our Thoughts




  • IRESS XTOOLS provides the ability to run projections past 100 years of age. 
  • IRESS XTOOLS provide a picture of how investments will grow over the course of time and base this on underlying assets as well as providing the ability to enter expected growth rates.
  • The tools provives the ability to prioritise goals which is importnat as every client will have a different set of goals.




  • IRESS XTOOLS provides advisers the ability to demonstrate the need for protection and the IRESS suite encompases varios tools that allow this.




    • IRESS XTOOLS is a great system but the system doesn’t link with Personal Financial Management tools which can be used to highlight customer spending.

    • The tool also doesn’t link to customer accounts and fails to utilise open banking.
