How are any commissions, fees or other benefits calculated for providing the financial services?
Generally the payment we receive will be based on the amount you invest. It may vary from one Financial Product issuer to another. Details of the payment we receive are contained in the Product Disclosure Statements for most Financial Product issuers available from your adviser. Your adviser can give you full details. If you receive personal advice from us, we will tell you about any commissions, fees and any other benefits, where possible in actual dollar amounts, in the Statement of Advice. Our adviser will give you this Statement of Advice, before we proceed to act on your instructions.
• We may be paid by the Financial Product issuer at the time you invest or contract, and during the life of your investment or contract.
• We may charge you a fee, depending on the time we spend developing your strategy, or depending on the value of funds you invest.
• We may invoice you for a fee when you receive our written recommendations.
• You may have to pay us a management fee annually or in instalments.
• We may receive an ongoing payment from the Financial Product issuer.
Your adviser will tell you in writing in the Statement of Advice what fees we may charge you, when you have to pay and what payments we may receive from the Financial Product issuer/s.
Our range of fees is as follows:
A fee for service of 0.935% (inclusive of GST) is applied to all funds where assistance is provided in managing the investment(s).
