4.3.1 Asset Revaluation

To ensure your Fund’s portfolio is correctly valued, it may be necessary to revalue certain Fund assets from time to time. For example, you may receive a statement from a Managed Fund advising of a change in unit value, and wish to record this. Or the value of a property, art work, motor vehicle, etc. may change due to market conditions.


IMPORTANT CAUTION:  When transitioning between Accumulation, Pension or Transition to Retirement phases, it may be imperative that asset valuations are updated on a critical date. This may require professional revaluation of Property and other assets. Consult a professional for advice if a Fund member is planning a transition.


Fortunately, Mclowd makes recording updated asset values process simple.


NOTE: Mclowd updates values of most Direct Equities listed on the ASX by direct data feed. You do not need to revalue most Direct Equity investments.


To revalue assets other than Direct Equities, click the ASSETS tab.

Mclowd displays a list of your Fund’s assets.

Assets Tab Button Menu

Click ASSET VALUATION.

Mclowd displays:

In the Valuation Date field, select the date the valuation change occurred.

In the Select Account field, select the account that owns the revalued asset, or leave the setting at the default ”Fund” if ownership is shared among all Fund members.
