We white-label and customize each solution, user console and communication tool to give businesses the latest in branded financial technology.


Segmented investment, operational and administrative apps that can be individually implemented, assembled as a customised collection of modules, or delivered as a full end-to-end digital solution. This building block approach allows businesses to address specific pain points without having to commit to a full end-to-end digital solution.

Modular Approach

As well as seamless integration and connectivity with both internal and external 3rd party systems and platforms, a BetaSmartz solution allows for the integration of a financial institution's chosen product set, process, views and assumptions, creating a hybrid solution that retains and preserves the financial institution’s core DNA and approach.

Open Architecture

From paperless account opening in minutes to automated portfolio allocation, rebalancing and reporting, BetaSmartz work centres on reducing cost, maximising the efficiency and scale of financial institutions and optimising the investment journey and experience of their clients.
