Asgard Authority Process
The Auto EPI download facility allows you to automatically download your clients’ account data (transactions, account balances, income and expenses) to Simple Fund 360, streamlining your SMSF administration.
Data downloads are scheduled to run overnight every night. The initial data file will include all historical data for the selected client accounts. Subsequent data files will only include transactions processed since the last data file was sent.
Dealer will generally be the Financial Adviser.
Application for automatic data downloads (Dealer only)
The Auto EPI download facility is available once your dealer has completed the Application for auto downloads and accepted the Confidentiality and Conditions of Service Agreement for the third party software providers. The application can only be made at dealer level access.
1. From Tools > Data downloads select Application for EPI auto downloads.
2. Nominate BGL by checking the relevant tick box(es).
3. Select the ‘I accept’ option.
4. Select Submit.
Accessing the Auto EPI download facility
Before you begin:
1. Ensure your dealer has completed the Application for Auto Downloads for the third party software providers (see above);
2. Register each adviser who wants to receive the data feeds with BGL.
Setting up your Auto EPI download files
Once your dealer has completed the Application for Auto Downloads, auto data download files can be setup at dealer, office or adviser access levels. To ensure no duplication of data is sent to a third party provider, a warning will be displayed if there is an existing auto data download request.

3. Input a download name (maximum of 50 characters).
4. Select the download type ‘Third party’ (Auto download) and then select BGL.

Each adviser must be a registered user of the third party software and using the same third party software installation. Client data sent for unregistered advisers will be rejected and lost.

6. Nominate to ‘Include insurance products’. This is unselected by default and BGL does not currently import this data.
7. If you don’t want to include any of the selected options, untick the applicable box(es).
8. Select Save. The Auto download screen will display your new download request.
Once you have completed the setup requirements, the auto download data files will be sent to Simple Fund 360 each night. To arrange an entire data refresh for one or more advisers, remove the existing data download and add a new EPI data download.
