Why is there no transaction history?
Unfortunately it was not possible to migrate your historic transaction data to the new My Brown Shipley. Whilst this restricts what you can view initially, over time and as your transaction history builds, you will begin to see what the new system can offer. If you require older transaction history, please contact your Brown Shipley Adviser directly and they will be able to provide this for you.

What are the ‘Other transactions’ I can see?
The last movement date on the positions you hold is shown. When you view the holding price history you will be able to see the last movement date. The reference of ‘other’ is simply because this is a migrated transaction date from the old My Brown Shipley system.

I want to see more fields?
The initial standard view has been designed to be as simple and easy to understand as possible, however based on client feedback we have now added additional fields to provide more detail. We will continue to review and improve the display based on your feedback. If you still wish to have a more detailed view of your portfolios please contact your usual Brown Shipley Adviser who will be able to assist.

On the App I can’t see the names of the portfolios?
Based on mobile screen sizes and associated security issues the mobile App does not currently display the names of portfolios. The names of portfolios are displayed on our desktop version and each portfolio has a unique portfolio number. As you become more familiar with these numbers it will become clearer which portfolio is which in the App. Please contact your usual Brown Shipley Adviser if you need any further assistance.

What are ‘Z-Groups’ and why can I see them?
If your portfolios are managed or reported on a ‘grouped’ basis, a fixed consolidation view of these portfolios will be available to access – these portfolios are prefixed with ‘ZU’. You can view your portfolios individually or by your fixed “group”. If you want to view a consolidated view of all your assets please take care and to not include your ‘Z-Group’ as this may cause a double count.

Why have you changed My Brown Shipley?
The new My Brown Shipley is considerably more powerful than previous versions and offers you a much greater insight into how your portfolios are performing. For more information on navigating My Brown Shipley please view our handy user guides above or contact our Dedicated Helpline on 0800 916 6911*.

Can I do ‘online’ payments?
The My Brown Shipley system does not currently offer the option to perform online payments, however, we are investigating this functionality and it may be available in the near future.

Why does the ‘Face/ Fingerprint ID’ feature also require my PIN?
Face and fingerprint ID make it far easier to access the My Brown Shipley App, however, for security reasons we will always ask you for 2 factor authentication when you are accessing My Brown Shipley. For more information on staying safe online please see our Online Security Section.
