Assign Models to Accounts
If you are utilizing models in your practice, you can assign models to your accounts once a model has been added to your Firm Collection. Click here to for more information about building models and accessing your Firm Collection.
A model must be assigned to each account and household portfolio before you can rebalance. Even if you do not use your dashboard to trade and rebalance the accounts, it is still good to connect the portfolio model to each account so that its security and class makeup is clearly represented for you and the client.
You can assign models to accounts from three different places:
Once you have created models for your firm, you can assign them to accounts or portfolios by clicking on the model name in the Model Name column on the Managed Accounts grid (accounts with no model assigned will state Assign Model). Once a model has been assigned, the model deviation will be calculated and displayed on the grid. Please note that in order to assign a model from this page, the account needs to have both an account owner and type assigned to the account.
Whenever you select the name of a model from your Firm Collection you will be shown the model detail. From this view, you can select the "$" icon to link the model to any account that does not already have an assigned model.
