Netwealth's funds under administration increased 21 per cent (or $2.7 billion) compared with the 2016-17 first half, and net inflows were $1.8 billion.
The firm's managed account saw its funds under management grow to $1.4 billion in the six months to 31 December 2017 – up 107 per cent from the prior corresponding period.

"The Netwealth team continues to do a great job delivering on our strategy to provide market-leading technology and service and this is reflected in our share of industry flows and profitability which are both at an all-time high," Mr Heine said.
