Important considerations

Becoming classified as a wholesale investor may be appropriate for you if you are an experienced investor and able to make informed investment decisions. Wholesale investors generally need to be able to assess the risks involved in financial transactions because the advice process and compliance obligations differ significantly. It is important that you understand the differences between operating as a wholesale versus a retail client.

  • Wholesale investors are not required to receive a Financial Services Guide (FSG), Statement of Advice (SOA) or Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) from their advisor, whereas retail clients must be provided with these documents.
  • Compared to retail clients, wholesale investors are generally not provided with the same level of consumer protection, as set out in the Future of Financial Advice (FOFA) reforms.
