We are authorised to deal in and provide financial advice in relation to general insurance products for retail and wholesale clients. To assist in your decision making we will give you information about the particular financial product by providing you with a Policy Wording and/or Product Disclosure Statement (‘PDS’). The Policy Wording and/or PDS will help you make an informed decision about whether to choose the financial product. In some cases, we may make a general recommendation or give an opinion about the general insurance product. We will do this WITHOUT reference to your specific individual objectives, financial situation or needs. This is a general advice service only. When providing general advice, we do not act on your behalf.

You need to consider the appropriateness of any specific information we give to you. You should have regard to your specific individual objectives, financial situation or needs before acting on it.


If we offer to arrange the issue of an insurance policy to you, we will also provide you with, or pass on to you, a product disclosure statement (PDS), unless you already have an up to date PDS. The PDS will contain information about the particular policy which will enable you to make an informed decision about purchasing that policy.
