Level of Advice
All financial product advice are labelled under two types of advice: general advice or personal advice. ASIC has provided guidance as to the difference between general advice and personal advice. Both general advice and private advice are outlined under section 766B of the Corporations Act.
Mentor Education’s RG146 General Insurance Short Course covers general advice only, personal advice is not covered.
General Advice relates to financial products or investments that can be obtained from an individual that holds an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) or similarly works for a company that has an AFSL.
The advice is classified as general information provided to a client on a particular product or strategy but does not take into account the clients’ personal financial circumstances.
Furthermore, for general advice the individual will receive a current Financial Services Guide (FSG) from their adviser at the first meeting and if a product is discussed, a Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) for each product will be provided if strategies are discussed, and a relevant client fact sheets will also be provided.
Individuals seeking to provide Tier 2 compliant advice on General Insurance products are required to successfully complete the Insurance course as General Advice.
