Provider's licence details

A person who offers financial products and advice must be one of the following:

  • an Australian financial services (AFS) licence holder
  • a director or employee of an AFS licence holder
  • an authorised representative of an AFS licence holder.

If the person or organisation offering you the arrangement doesn't hold a valid licence issued by the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC), they could be operating illegally and your investment may not be protected if things go wrong.
