CHAPTER 7 - FINANCIAL SERVICES AND MARKETS  

PART 7.6 - LICENSING OF PROVIDERS OF FINANCIAL SERVICES  

Division 5 - Authorised representatives  

SECTION 916E   LICENSEES ACTING UNDER A BINDER  

916E(1)   [ Binder given by insurer]  

Despite section 916D , a financial services licensee (the authorised licensee ) may be the authorised representative of another financial services licensee who is an insurer, if the authorised licensee acts under a binder given by the insurer.

916E(2)   [ Effect]  

For all purposes connected with contracts that are risk insurance products, or with claims against the insurer, in respect of which the authorised licensee acts under the binder:


(a) the authorised licensee is taken to act on behalf of the insurer and not the insured; and


(b) if the insured in fact relied in good faith on the conduct of the authorised licensee, the authorised licensee is taken to act on behalf of the insurer regardless of the fact that the authorised licensee did not act within the scope of the binder.
