The purpose of this FSG

This FSG sets out the services that we can offer you. It is

designed to assist you in deciding whether to use any of those services and contains important information about:

  • the services we offer you;
  • how we and others are paid;
  • any potential conflict of interest we may have;
  • our internal and external dispute resolution procedures and how you can access them;
  • arrangements we have in place to compensate clients for losses; and

When we provide advice

If we provide you with General Advice or assist you in obtaining a Retail insurance product (as defined in the Corporations Act

2001), we provide you with a general recommendation or opinion about a product which does not take into

consideration your financial needs, situation, or objectives. In these circumstances we will provide you with a General Advice Warning. We recommend that you read the relevant Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) in order to determine if that product is right for you.

The PDS will contain information about the particular policy which will enable you to make an informed decision about purchasing that policy.

We will provide you with further information whenever we provide you with Personal Advice which takes into account your objectives, financial situation, and needs. This information may include the advice that we have given you, the basis of the advice and other information on our remuneration and any relevant associations or interests. This information may be contained in a Statement of Advice (SOA).

When you ask us to recommend an insurance policy for you, we will usually only consider the policies offered by the insurers or insurance providers that we deal with regularly. In giving you advice about the costs and terms of recommended policies we have not compared those policies to other policies available, other than from those insurers we deal with regularly.

Product Disclosure Statement

If we offer to arrange the issue of an insurance policy to you, we will also provide you with, or pass on to you, a Product Disclosure Statement (PDS), unless you already have an up-to-date PDS.

The PDS will contain information about the particular policy which will enable you to make an informed decision  about purchasing that product.

From when does this FSG apply?

DKG holds a current Australian Financial Services Licensee Number 231146. The contact details for DKG are on the front of this FSG.

In some cases, our services may be provided by Authorised Representatives, Distributors, or Referrers (collectively referred to as Representatives) who have been provided with specific authority to provide services on our behalf.

For other financial services we may refer you to other authorised licensees who are qualified to provide the required advice or service.

Sometimes we will act under a binder or agency from the insurer.

When we act under a binder or agency we will be acting as the agent of the insurer. This means that we represent and act for the insurer, not for you. We will tell you when we act under a binder or arrangement.

Will I receive tailored advice?

Maybe not in all cases. However, we may need information about your personal objectives, details of your current financial situation and any relevant information, so that we can arrange insurance policies for you or to give you advice about your insurance needs. We will ask you for the details that we need to know.

In some cases, we will not ask for any of this information. If we do not ask, or if you do not give us all of the information we ask for, any advice you receive may not be appropriate to your needs, objectives, and financial situation. You should read the warnings contained in any SOA, or any other warnings that we give you, carefully before making any decision about an insurance policy.

Where we provide you with advice about your insurance arrangements, that advice is current at the time that we give it. We will review your insurance arrangements when you  inform us about changes in your circumstances at the time of any scheduled status review or upon renewal of your insurances.

What information do you maintain in my file and can I examine my file?

We maintain a record of your personal profile, including details of insurance policies that we arrange for you. We may also maintain records of any recommendations or advice given to you.

We will retain this FSG and any other FSG given to you as well as any SOA or PDS that we give or pass on to you for the period required by law.

We are committed to implementing and promoting a privacy policy, which will ensure the privacy and security of your personal information. A copy of our privacy policy is available on our website,

If you wish to look at your file, please ask us. We will make arrangements for you to do so; our files are all digitally maintained by appropriate scanning and archiving software.

How will I pay for the services provided?

For each insurance product the insurer will charge a premium that includes any relevant taxes, charges, and levies. We often receive a payment based on a percentage of this premium (excluding relevant taxes, charges, and levies) calledcommission, which is paid to us by the insurers. However, in some cases, we will also charge you a fee. These will all be shown on the invoice that we send you. You can choose to payby any of the payment methods set out in the invoice. You are required to pay us within the time set out on the invoice.

If there is a refund or reduction of your premium as a result of a cancellation or alteration to a policy or based on a term of your policy (such as a premium adjustment provision), we will retain any fee we have charged you. We will also retain commission depending on our arrangements with the insurer or charge you a cancellation fee equal to the reduction in our commission.

When you pay us your premium it will be banked into our trust account. We retain the commission from the premium you pay us and remit the balance to the insurer in accordance with our arrangements with the insurer. We will earn interest on the premium while it is in our trust account or we may invest the premium and earn a return. We will retain any interest or return on investment earned on the premium.

If you pay by credit card, we may charge you a credit card (including arrangement and handling) fee, which will be disclosed and shown separately on your invoice, they are non-refundable. This fee covers the cost of bank charges etc. associated with these facilities.

You may also pay your invoice utilising premium funding. If you do use premium funding, you are able to pay your premium by instalments, although you will incur a fee and interest. Any benefit we may receive as a result of premium funding being arranged for you is set out in this document.

How are any commissions, fees or other benefits calculated for providing the financial services?

Our commission will be calculated based on the following formula: X = Y% x P

In this formula:

X = our commission

Y% = the percentage commission paid to us by the insurer. Our commission varies between 0% and 30%. The commission varies from policy to policy.

P = the amount you pay for any insurance policy (less any government fees or charges included in that amount).

Any fees that we charge you will be based on the amount of time it will take us to place and maintain the policy of insurance for the insured period.

We do not often pay any commissions, fees or benefits to others who refer you to us or refer us to an insurer. If we do, we will pay commissions to those people out of our commission or fees (not in addition to those amounts), in the range of 0% to 30% of our commission or fee.

Our employees (representatives), that will assist you with your insurance needs, will be paid a market salary for the policies we arrange for you. They may receive a benefit from the sale of a product to you and may also receive bonuses based on the overall performance of our business.

Our employees may also be invited to annual conferences, receive sponsorship for conferences, functions, meals, or other non-monetary benefits from external parties such as insurers, underwriting agencies, or reinsurers. You do not bear the cost of these events and such relationships are managed under our conflicts of interest policy. Our policy is that any of the above received by us or our representatives that exceed $250 per item or transaction in estimated value are potentially material and must be disclosed to our Compliance and Risk Manager in writing.

Details of any remuneration, commission, and other benefits that you, or other persons, will or reasonably expect to receive in respect of (or that is attributable to)the service to be provided.

If we give you personal advice, we will inform you of any fees, commission, or other payments we, our associates or anyone referring you to us (or us to any insurer) will receive in relation to the policies  that are the subject of the advice.

Do you have any relationships or associations with the insurers who issue the insurance policies or any other material relationships?

DKG is a Steadfast Group Limited (Steadfast) Network Broker. Steadfast has exclusive arrangements with some insurers and premium funders (Partners) under which Steadfast will receive between 0.5 – 1.5% commission for each product arranged by us with those Partners. Steadfast is also a shareholder of some Partners.

We may receive a proportion of that commission from Steadfast at the end of each financial year (or other agreed period).

As a Steadfast Network Broker, we have access to member services including model operating and compliance tools, procedures, manuals, and training, legal, technical, banking and recruitment advice and assistance, group insurance arrangements, product comparison and placement support, claims support and group purchasing arrangements. These member services are either funded by Steadfast, subsidised by Steadfast or available exclusively to Steadfast Network Brokers for a fee. You can obtain a copy of Steadfast’s FSG

If we arrange premium funding for you, we may be paid a  commission by the premium funder. We may also charge you a fee (or both). The commission that we are paid by the premium funder is usually calculated as a percentage of your insurance premium (including government fees or changes). If you instruct us to arrange or issue a product, this is when we become entitled to the commission.

Our commission rates for premium funding are in the range of 0% to 4% of funded premium. When we arrange premium funding for you, you can ask us what commission rates we are paid for that funding arrangement compared to the other arrangements that were available to you. The amount of our commission and any fee that we charge will be set out in the premium funding contract.

If a person has referred you to us, we may pay them a part of any fees or commission received. If you are a Retail Client and receive Personal Advice full remuneration details will be disclosed in the SOA or invoices related to the advice.
