How am I paid?

Commissions and Incentives

For services in relation to loan products/insurance, commissions may be paid by the product provider as follows:

Initial commission – a percentage of the value of your loan balance ranging from 0.55 % to 1.00 %; a percentage of the value of your insurance premiums ranging from 30.00 % to 230.00 %

Ongoing commission – a percentage of the value of your outstanding loan amount or premiums, usually calculated at the end of each month in which you hold the loan ranging from 0.15 % to 0.20 %; or on renewal of insurance products ranging from 5.00 % to 30.00 %.

I can also receive a referral fee or commission if I refer you to our referral partners.

The commission I receive is shared with The Mortgage Hero Limited for providing me with compliance support, training, and back-office support.

Fees and expenses

Generally, I won’t charge you any fees for the advice I provide to you. This is possible because, on settlement of a loan or issue of any insurance policy, I usually receive commission from the lender or insurer.

Any exceptions to this general position are explained below.

a. When I don’t receive commission from the lender / insurer: If you request that I provide financial / insurance advice and I do not receive a commission from the lender / insurer, I may charge you a one-off fee. Any such fee would be agreed and authorised by you in writing before I complete the services and would be based on an estimate of the time spent providing the advice.

This may arise in the rare event that you request that I provide services in relation to either a product that is offered by a lender / insurer I do not hold an accreditation / association with, or a product that is outside my usual arrangements with my product providers.

b. I may charge you for the financial advice that I provide if you cancel or refinance your mortgage within 28 months after it settles or if you cancel your insurance policy within 24 months from the date of issue. We will use the following formula to calculate the fee:  

Fee for our financial advice = $5,000 + GST for minimum 20 hours of work calculated at $250 per hour  + GST

Or

0.55 % of the loan balance, whichever is lower of the two.

Fee for our insurance advice = $3,750 + GST for minimum 15 hours of work calculated at $250 per hour + GST.

c. If you decide not to act on my advice or upon arranging an approval letter, if the loan is not drawn down by you for any reason, then I will charge you an hourly fee of $250 + GST for the services performed. This will be based on the time it has taken to prepare my advice. The average charge for this service is $5,000 + GST which is calculated at minimum of 20 hours x $250 per hour + GST.

We will invoice you for this fee and it will be payable on the 20th of the month following the cancellation of your policies. Details of how to make payment will be included on the invoice.
