Conflicts of Interest and Incentives
We receive commissions from the providers on whose products we give financial advice. The amount of the commission is based on the amount of the loan.
From time to time, product providers may also reward us for the overall business we provide to them. They may give us tickets to sports events, hampers, or other incentives.
To ensure that our financial advisers prioritise our clients’ interests above their own, we follow an advice process that ensures our recommendations are made on the basis of each client’s goals and circumstances. All our financial advisers undergo annual training about how to manage conflicts of interest. We maintain registers of conflicts of interests, and the gifts and incentives we receive. These registers are monitored and additional training is sought where necessary. Our compliance program is also subject to an annual audit.
The initial conversation is where we get to know you. Who you are, what your goals are and how we can help. By the end of this meeting you should have a clear idea of what our plan is and how we are able to assist you.
This is where we flesh out the details from our first conversation, you will complete a Fact Find and Statement of Position and provide all the supporting documentation necessary, we will compile this into a clear loan application.
We then submit this application to the bank on your behalf and work through any issues until we have an approval. If there are any conditions on this approval, we will work with you to have them satisfied so that you can purchase unconditionally.
Structure and Rates
This is where we negotiate interest rates on your behalf, then assist you in deciding how you will structure your lending. The correct loan structure can save you thousands of dollars over the life of the loan, so we take this meeting very seriously.
Our commitment to you does not end when your loan is settled. We will be here to look after your financial needs for the rest of your life. We will assist you when your interest rates need to be re-fixed, or if you have a change of circumstance.
