Who will be providing the financial service to me?
Your adviser is a representative of SWA.
This FSG is issued with the authority of SWA on the 01/04/2012.
What kinds of financial services are you authorised to provide me and what kinds of products do thoseservices relate to?
SWA is licensed to provide advice and arrange transactions in relation to the following financial products:
Basic and Non-Basic Deposit Products
Life Products, including Income Protection, Life/Death, Trauma, Temporary and Permanent Disability
Investment Life Insurance Products, including Annuities, Insurance Bonds, Complying, Term and Allocated Pensions
Superannuation, including Public Offer Super funds, Corporate
Superannuation, Self Managed Super Funds
Retirement Savings Accounts
Managed Investment schemes, including investor directed portfolio services
Your adviser is in turn authorised to advise on and deal in these products as a representative of SWA.
SWA offers both personal advice and general advice. Where general advice is given, we will provide you with a warning which outlines the requirement to seek personal advice that would be appropriate to your needs, objectives and circumstances prior to acting on any advice.
We can also provide regular reviews of your portfolio. Our review service is detailed within our Statement of Advice.
In addition, your adviser may also assist you in the following areas:
Risk Management & Protection of Assets
Retrenchment and Redundancy
Access to Direct Share Advice
Some of these services may fall outside your Adviser’s authorisation under SWA and will not be covered under SWA’s Professional Indemnity Policy. However, they may be covered under your Adviser’s separate professional insurance cover
Who do you act for when you provide financial services to me?
As a representative, your adviser acts on behalf of SWA when providing financial advice to you. SWA is therefore responsible to you for any advisory services your adviser provides. Your adviser’s primary duty is to you, the client.
How will I pay for the service and do you receive remuneration, commission, fees or any other benefits in relation to providing the financial services to me and how is that commission calculated?
Commission and Fees
SWA may receive initial commission on investments or insurances that you purchase as a result of advice provided by your adviser, in which case the payment will be made by the provider of that product, that is the fund manager or life company. We may charge a fee for the preparation of a statement of advice. If a fee for service is to apply we will discuss this with you prior to preparation.
The amount of commission may range between 0% to 10% for investments and 0% to 121% for insurances, dependent on the product provider. The commissions will be payable to SWA by the product provider upon proceeding with a transaction relating to that product.
For investments, commission is included in the entry fees charged by the fund manager or is paid by the fund manager where there is no entry fee. For insurances, commission is included in the premium charged by the life company. The amount of commission received will be based on the amount of the transaction and may vary from product to product.
SWA may also receive ongoing commission on an annual basis for the duration of your investment or insurance. This may range between 0% to 5% for investment and 0% to 15% for insurance depending on the product provided.
Your adviser is entitled to receive remuneration in the form of commission payable as a result of your investment or insurance. Your adviser will provide you with specific details of any of these benefits if they are applicable, and relevant to the recommendation made to you when personal advice is provided, within a Statement of Advice.
FEE SHARING ARRANGEMENTS
SWA may also receive financial incentive payments from fund managers or platforms for volumes of business generated. These amounts are included in ongoing management fees and are not additional to any fees charged. If relevant to the recommendation provided, further details are provided in the Statement of Advice where personal advice is provided by your financial adviser.
After careful research, SWA produces an Approved List of Fund Managers ‘Financial Products’ and these product providers are invited to sponsor training days and conference programs. In return, SWA provide opportunities to present at these events, as well as advertising opportunities at adviser functions, training days and in adviser newsletters.
Do any other relationships or associations exist which might influence you in providing me with the financial services?
No such relationships or associations exist at this time.
When you get our advice
Will you give me advice that is suitable to my needs and financial circumstances?
Yes, but to do so we need to find out your individual objectives, financial situation and needs before we recommend any financialproducts or services to you.
You have the right not to divulge this information to us, if you do notwish to do so.
In that case, we are required to warn you about the possibleconsequences of us not having your full personal information. You should read the warnings carefully.
What should I know about any risks of the financial products or strategies you recommend to me?
We will explain to you any significant risks of financial products and strategies which we recommend to you. If you feel that you need further clarification then please ask your adviser.
What information do you maintain in my file and can I examine my file?
We maintain a record of your personal profile which includes details of your objectives, financial situation and needs.

Privacy Disclosure Statement
We are required pursuant to the Corporations Act 2001 (“Act”), certain regulations issued by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission to collect information about you for the purpose of providing you with the following services:
Preparation of your financial plan
The provision of financial planning and risk insurance advice to you
Making financial product recommendations
Reviewing your investments and insurances
Other activities as directed by you
We will from time to time disclose information about you to authorised representatives/representatives of SWA and to other professionals, insurance providers, superannuation trustees and product issuers in connection with the purposes detailed above.
In the event we consider it necessary to use or disclose information about you for purposes other than those detailed above, or related purposes, we will seek your consent.
Can I provide you with instructions and tell you how I wish to instruct you to buy or sell my financial products?
Yes. You may specify how you would like to give us instructions. For example by telephone, fax or other means.
If you have any complaints
Who can I complain to if I have a complaint about the provision of the financial services to me?
We are a member of the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).
If you have any complaint about the service provided to you, you should take the following steps.
1. Contact us and tell us about your complaint.
2. If your complaint is not satisfactorily resolved within three days, please contact our complaints manager or put your complaint in writing and send it to us at the address noted at the beginning of this FSG. We will try and resolve your complaint quickly and fairly.
3. If you are not satisfied with our response, or if you have not received a response within 45 days, you may lodge a written complaint with the Financial Ombudsman Services Limited (‘FOS’), GPO Box 3, Melbourne Victoria 3001. You can phone FOS on 1300 780 808. This service is provided to you free of charge.
Stage 1 of the FOS process is where FOS facilitates discussions and negotiations between the parties. All relevant documents are exchanged and the issues in dispute are identified.
Stage 2 is conciliation and the parties come face to face with a conciliator from the FOS national panel. The role of the conciliator is to assist the parties to explore options for settlement of the dispute and to help parties to agree on their own outcome.
Stage 3 is where the independent adjudicator is requested to make a decision “on the papers” taking into account the relevant law, fairness and reasonableness. If you accept the adjudicator’s decision it is binding on the member.
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has a free call information line on 1300 300 630 which you may use to make a complaint and obtain information about your rights.
What compensation arrangement do we have for retail clients?
We have a Professional Indemnity (PI) Insurance underwritten by ACE Insurance that satisfies the requirements for compensation arrangements under s912B of the Act. The PI insurance provides a”run-off” cover for a certain period of time for Authorised Representatives who are no longer connected with us.”
