Not Independent

Shartru Wealth Management Pty Ltd, its Corporate Authorised Representatives, and Authorised Representatives may receive commissions on life insurance products. For these reasons we do not refer to ourselves or our advice as independent, impartial or unbiased.

What kinds of financial services are you authorised to provide me and what kinds of products do those services relate to?

GMM can provide general advice only in the following areas:

  • Financial strategies and financial advice Superannuation (including self-managed super funds)

Please note that “general advice” does not take account of investors’ objectives, financial situation or needs. Before acting on this general advice, investors should therefore consider the appropriateness of the advice having regard to their objectives, financial situation or needs.

Who do you act for when you provide services for me?

GMM is responsible for the financial services provided to you, in its capacity as a CAR of Shartru Wealth.

How will I pay for the service?

GMM does not charge for the provision of general advice. Further, there is no charge for joining the Grow My Money platform (GMM Platform).

Do you receive remuneration, commission, fees or other benefits in relation to providing the financial services or assistance to me and how is that remuneration calculated?

GMM generates revenue by taking up to 50% commission from each cashback reward that the retailer pays; this is known as a referral commission. All cashback reward offers and amounts you see in your Grow My Money Account dashboard are net of the referral commission.

For example, if a member spends $100 with a participating retailer and the GMM Platform offers a cashback reward of 3.75%, then the member receives $3.75. GMM receives a referral commission from the retailer of up to $3.75 (a 50% referral commission).

GMM may vary its commission amounts at its discretion. We do not accept any form of conflicted remuneration.

GMM may also be paid a transaction fee which is charged directly to the participating retailer and may receive fees from third parties in relation to supplying software as a service..

Do you have any referral arrangements in place?

GMM has referral arrangements and partnerships in place with a number of providers for our members. Where you click through or take advantage of those arrangements, we’re effectively referring you to another party and we may get paid should you proceed with certain transactions.

Will you provide me advice, which is suitable to my needs and financial circumstances?

No, GMM provides general advice only. We do not take into account your individual objectives, financial situation or needs. To obtain advice that is suitable to your individual objectives, financial situation and needs you should seek personal financial advice from a financial adviser authorised to provide personal advice.

What should I know about the risks of the products or strategies you recommend to me?

GMM will only give you general advice. We do not recommend any financial products nor express an opinion on financial products. We are offering shopping rewards via cashback which you can apply to your nominated GMM Product Account (the superannuation fund, home mortgage account or other product offered by GMM in the future). You should seek personal financial advice from an authorised financial adviser to ensure this is suitable for your circumstances.

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

GMM maintains a record of your personal profile, which may include your name, month and year of birth, postcode, email address, mobile number and the details of your GMM Product Account. We also keep a record of your purchasing on the GMM Platform and the cashback rewards earned with each purchase.

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 the GMM Platform.

GMM does not store your debit or credit card details.
