Financial advice process
We recognise that the objectives and personal circumstances of each client are different.
Where we provide personal advice, we will listen to you to understand your objectives and circumstances. We will also ask questions to make sure we provide advice which is in your best interests.
When we first provide personal advice to you it will be explained thoroughly and documented in a Statement of Advice (SoA) which you can take away and read.
The SoA will explain the basis for our advice, the main risks associated with the advice, the cost to you of implementing the advice, the benefits we receive and any conflicts of interest which may influence the advice.
For administration platforms, managed funds and personal risk insurance products we will provide you with a Product Disclosure Statement. This contains information to help you understand the product being recommended.
At all times you are able to contact us and ask questions about our advice and the products we recommend. You can provide instructions to us in writing, via phone or via email. In some cases, we may require you to provide signed instructions.
We may provide further advice to you to keep your plan up to date for changes in your circumstances, changes in the law and changes in the economy and products.
If we provide further advice it will typically be documented in a Record of Advice which we retain on file. You can request a copy of the RoA document at any time up to 7 years after the advice is provided.
All fees are payable to Brela Group Pty Ltd.
