Our network of advisers

Professional advisers. Strategic advice.

Choosing an adviser is deeply personal. That’s why we provide you with choice when it comes to selecting an adviser.

Our network of advisers includes those that work in our team at MLC Advice and advisers who work within a self-employed financial advice practice.

All advisers in our network have access to our highly experienced advice strategy and technical teams and are supported by research and insights through our external investment research providers.

Our network of advisers also strive to have the highest professional standards in the market so you can have comfort about their approach.

Advice unplugged

We asked our MLC Advice advisers to answer some of the questions you've always wanted to ask about advice – from why advice is worth the cost to how they choose the products they recommend.

Here is what they said in their own words.

Here’s an overview of our network of advisers so you can decide which one is right for you.

Who owns the advice business?

The self-employed financial advice practices are owned by a range of business owners who are passionate about running and operating their own financial advice practice. The financial advisers who work in these practices are authorised to provide advice on behalf of one of our advice licensees.

MLC Advice is a trading name for Bridges Financial Services Pty Limited, which is part of the IOOF Group.

What are your advisers’ qualifications?

Financial Advisers in our network are qualified financial advisers and some may hold a Masters in Financial Planning or are a Certified Financial Planner by the Financial Planning Association. They also undertake regular training to help keep their financial advice skills and knowledge current and to help keep them up to date on industry best practice.

If you would like further information on a particular adviser’s qualifications, you can refer to ASIC’s Financial Adviser Register.

What sort of products do you recommend?

Our network of advisers has access to a broad choice of products that allows them to tailor advice solutions to your unique circumstances and goals. Our network of advisers can provide advice across a diverse range of products, services and providers, which may include:

  • Investment platforms
  • Managed funds
  • Insurance products
  • Listed securities
  • Separately managed accounts; and
  • SMSF providers.

The range of investment and insurance products an adviser can recommend is provided on an approved product list and has gone through a stringent quality assessment. You can ask your adviser in your meeting for a copy of their approved product list.

Are there any hidden fees or commissions?

For all new clients our network of advisers work on a fee-for-service model and fees are always made clear up front. There are no hidden fees or surprises.

Financial advisers and licensees no longer receive ongoing commissions from financial product providers when their clients invest in any new super or investment products. Some financial advisers in our network of advisers and licensees may receive commissions from insurance providers when their clients take up insurance products that they recommend.

If you receive personal financial advice, your adviser will provide you details of any fees, commissions and any other benefits, in the written advice.

Transparent fees

We’re committed to being upfront and open about all fees. Your adviser will always tell you exactly what their advice will cost before you sign up. Any advice fees will be documented and approved by you through the advice process.
