In the spirit of our straight-up approach, we like to be 100% transparent about our duties to our clients, our fees, and how we manage complaints. You can find out more about how we engage with businesses here.
The following information provides you with an important overview of Long Burroughs Limited, our duties to you, fees and how we manage complaints.
Long Burroughs Limited FSP650369, holds a financial advice provider licence issued by the Financial Markets Authority under the Financial Markets Conduct Act. This licence also extends to include the following companies as authorised bodies of that licence to provide financial advice services.
Long Burroughs Limited provides advice to our clients about their general insurance needs.
Our Financial Advisers provide financial advice in relation to domestic general insurance, such as house, contents, landlords, motor vehicle and boat insurance, as well as commercial general insurance, such as commercial property, business interruption, commercial motor, marine, liability, professional indemnity, and cyber insurance.
When providing our advice, we access a wide range of general insurance products from various general insurance providers in both the local and overseas market.
Long Burroughs Limited may charge you a fee, and charges, for providing financial advice, and for arranging, altering or cancelling your general insurance program. For general insurance placements, Long Burroughs Limited may also charge an administration fee for processing insurance premiums. If a fee will be charged, you will be advised at the time the financial advice is provided.
In some circumstances we may recommend another service provider to assist us in providing appropriate financial advice. These providers can include but are not limited to property valuers, property surveyors, motor vehicle valuers, premium funders. These providers will charge a fee for the work they do. We will advise you of any related fees and charges prior to having them commence any work on your behalf.
Long Burroughs Limited have spent many years forging relationships with local and international insurance providers. The benefits of these relationships are seen every day in the outstanding choice, competitive pricing, coverage options and policy support services we offer our clients.
Long Burroughs Limited is paid a commission from the general insurance product provider, when arranging insurance with them on your behalf. The amount of commission received varies as it is calculated as a percentage of the insurance premium charged.
Long Burroughs Limited and its Financial Advisers may also receive indirect benefits such as business lunches, tickets to sporting and/or cultural events, corporate promotional merchandise, and other unquantifiable minor benefits.
We recognise that the above commissions and incentives may create conflicts of interests for Long Burroughs Limited and your Financial Adviser. To manage these conflicts, our Financial Advisers follow an advice process that ensures our recommendations are made on the basis of your financial goals and circumstances. All our financial advisers undergo training about how to manage conflicts of interest. We undertake compliance audits of our financial advisers, and annually audit our conflict of interest compliance framework.
We may, however, choose to rebate all or some commissions and charge you a fee based on the nature of the service we provide.
Long Burroughs Limited also maintains a professional liability insurance scheme for Architectural Designers. When providing our advice for this scheme, we use only one insurance provider, and the advice is universal to all members of the scheme. However, we also provide specific advice per client where variations in cover are required.
If you are not fully satisfied with the services provided Long Burroughs Limited, please contact your Financial Adviser or Long Burroughs Limited directly.
