Frequently asked questions
What is a financial advisor and what do they do?
A financial advisor is an expert who provides customers with specialist advice on how to manage their money. Some focus on wealth management while others specialise in business finance, retirement planning or insurance, among other areas.
A financial advisor’s role is to provide customers with bespoke advice, search the market for the right products for their needs and negotiate the most favourable deal possible.
All financial advisors in Australia must hold industry-standard qualifications and abide by a strict code of regulations.
A mortgage broker, or a home loan broker, is a specific type of financial advisor who specialises in home loans and related products such as bridging finance.
Some mortgage brokers can advise on and arrange residential home loans, while others focus on investment loans and commercial. There are even some who do all of these things.
How does our matching service work?
We help customers find the right advice by introducing them to the expert that’s best positioned to cater for their needs and circumstances, whether that’s a home loan broker, a financial advisor or anything else.
We handpick the experts that we work with and we’re selective about the ones we choose. We match customers with these advisors for free to ensure that they get the right advice every time, whatever their background.
How are you free?
Making an enquiry with us won’t cost you a cent and the experts we work with will only charge on success. We only get paid when the advisor successfully helps you get what you need, so it’s in our interest for you to get the best service.
This success-only model is one of the many things that sets us apart from other introducers, many of whom are charge an upfront fee and aren’t incentivised to be of help to those that enquire.
For certain financial products, such as home loans, advisors earn commission from the provider, which is usually a percentage of the deal’s value. For these products, there are advisors who operate on a commission-only basis. They take their cut when the agreement reaches completion and are only paid on success.
Many of the experts we work with operate this way, but we will only introduce you to a no-fee advisor if they are the one best positioned to help you.
What fees will a financial advisor or broker charge?
The cost can vary depending on what the expert is advising on. With home loans, for example, the fee is usually a small percentage of the loan, but this will only be payable if your advisor gets you the outcome you’re looking for.
Whether you need a home loan broker or a financial advisor, your initial consultation with your expert will be free, with no obligation to act on their advice. During your free chat, they will offer complete transparency about the costs you will incur if you proceed.
Is my data safe and secure?
Yes, we take data security very seriously and are very proactive about data compliance. Everything we do is in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs).
We only let advisors into our network that meet our standards of expertise for a given area and share our core values.
Fill out a quick form and we’ll find the best advisor for your circumstances.

What questions should I ask my advisor?
Below you’ll find a list of questions that we will ask your financial advisor or broker on your behalf.
To match our customers with the right expert, we like to know the following…
- What fees do you charge and how do you bill customers?
- Are you independent and do you have access to the whole market?
- Do you have the right qualifications?
- Do you have a strong track record in the relevant field?
- Will you provide ongoing advice to the customer, included in the cost?
You are, of course, welcome to ask your advisor these questions and more for your own peace of mind before proceeding, but we will find out the answers to all of the above when matching our customers to the right financial advisor for them.
