Common Cents Financial Services Ltd in conjunction with an AFS Licensee, EQ Financial Pty Ltd, are promoting the formation of a dealer group to be wholly owned by its Authorised Representatives. An arrangement is in place for the acquisition of EQ Financial as a going concern licensee, subject to the achievement of critical mass, being the participation of a minimum number of Founding Advisers. It is proposed to establish ownership of the licensee by its Authorised Representatives through a Limited Partnership operating not for profit. The concept is similar to Vanguard, one of the largest global fund
managers, which is a mutual and distributes profit to its customers in lower ongoing fees.
At this pre-launch stage, Common Cents is seeking nothing more than Expressions of Interest without obligation from advisers seeking an opportunity to consider the benefits of a licencing solution which offers control over their destiny. To register an Expression of Interest visit:

Association Partner

The Association of Independently Owned Financial Professionals [AIOFP] was registered in 1998 by a group of independently owned Advisers to differentiate their practices in an institutionally dominated market place. To be a member the practice must not have any institutional ownership, be of good fame and operate its own AFSL. The AIOFP now also accepts individual members under these conditions.  

AIOFP’s founding objective was to protect and promote the interests of members and their clients without fear or favour, we have and always will act in our members best interests. AIOFP’s point of difference to other market options is its members, Board and management are all from the independently owned sector - we are not influenced or dictated to by other agendas or factions in our membership.   

The AIOFP are pleased that ASIC has recently recognised the role AIOFP and its members play by allowing our members to display the AIOFP logo on promotional material subject to a suitable disclaimer.   

AIOFP is the largest Association representing the Independently owned sector with over 3,000 advisers in its membership.
