FAQ – Getting our own AFSL

To give financial advice in Australia you need to either have your own Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) or pay an organisation to licence you. We had previously been licenced by Financial Wisdom who has now decided to stop offering this service. We have consequently elected to get our own AFSL and share with two other 10+ year financial advisers. We have set up a separate company to hold the licence called Investplan Pty Ltd.

Previously on advice documents it has said Chandler Private Wealth licenced by Financial Wisdom, it will change to Chandler Private Wealth licenced by Investplan.

Will I need to change my investments, super, protection, my financial plan? No – nothing changes as a result of this movement. As always, if your circumstances have changed then it may be time for a review.

Is there anything I need to do? No – we will be in touch in the normal course of business, but please contact us if you need anything.

Will I notice any changes? If you are paying your advice fees via direct debit from your bank account you will see a change in the description from ‘Financial Wisdom’ to ‘Investplan’. On our advice documentation, you will also notice a branding change.

Will you still pay for external research? Yes, as part of our normal business we will still pay for external research on investments, direct equities, insurance and superannuation funds.

Will you still pay for professional indemnity insurance? Yes, all AFSL’s need to maintain PI cover as part of ASIC’s requirements.

Is there anything else I need to know? This is a positive move for us and our clients, and we hope that going forward our advice documentation will be concise and structured in a way that is easier to follow and written in simple, plain language.

As always if you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact us via phone or email.
