OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH SECURITOR
We operate a privately owned and run business, and we are not employees of Securitor or any company in the Westpac Group.
As your adviser, we strive to provide you with quality advice as well as the personalised service that is usually associated with a small business.
However, Securitor remains responsible for the quality of advice provided by us under Securitor’s AFSL. This means Securitor provides significant support and supervision, with the aim of ensuring you receive quality financial planning advice.
Securitor requires its Authorised Representatives to complete external assessments and annual training programs to maintain knowledge. As an Authorised Representative, we are also subject to regular reviews from experienced compliance professionals, who assess the quality of our advice.
Securitor provides extensive resources and dedicated teams to support us, including technical experts in areas such as superannuation and retirement planning.
