About us and the financial services we are authorised to provide to you

We are authorised to provide general financial product advice in relation to securities and derivative products. We are authorised to provide these services and products to both retail and wholesale clients.

Who will provide the financial services to you?

Services are provided by qualified employees for and on behalf of Options Trading IQ.

How will the services be provided?

Upon becoming a client of Options Trading IQ, you will have access to online educational material where you will be taught about the financial markets.

We will provide you with general financial product advice through a number of means including:

  • In Person
  • Email / Website
  • Discord

We will only provide services to you, with your prior, informed consent. If you do not understand any of the information in this FSG, or have any other questions relating to the terms on which we will be acting, please contact us.

In providing our services, other financial matters may arise. However, we are not authorised to provide services in relation to any financial product except those listed in this FSG. You should seek specific advice from the appropriate professionals on other matters relevant to you.

What is general advice?

There is an important difference between ‘general advice’ and ‘personal advice’. We provide you with ‘general advice’ which means that we have not considered any of your individual objectives, financial situation and needs. If we provide you with general advice, we will provide you with a warning that the advice may not be appropriate to your needs, financial situation or objectives.

Please retain this FSG for your reference and any future dealings with us. We may also add documents at a later date which will also form part of this FSG, and these should be read together with the FSG. These documents will include the word ‘FSG’ in the heading.

What risks are involved in trading the financial products we may advise you on?

The derivative products we provide general advice on involve risk. A description of the risks associated with each product will be outlined in detail in the relevant Product Disclosure Statement (PDS), which will be provided to you by the product issuer.

You should consider the information contained in the relevant PDS before investing in or trading on any financial market.

Other documents you may receive

We may provide other documentation as required. These documents may include educational material, client agreements or other offer documents.

What fees and commissions are payable to us?

Fees for providing you with our services may be received by either the Licensee or Options Trading IQ.

All fees described in this FSG include GST unless otherwise stated. We will explain all fees payable by you prior to any general financial product advice being offered to you.
