What services we may provide to you

Stockopedia may provide general financial product advice through its platform, (herein referred to as the “Stockopedia App”), its licenced agents and through its directors and employees.

The Stockopedia App is available through an online site www.stockopedia.com/en-au and is available to Retail investors.

Stockopedia provides access to its analysis of all listed companies and entities on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), including market and stock specific commentary. We also provide information on companies and other listed vehicles on global exchanges through the Stockopedia App. For further information on Stockopedia App subscriptions, please read our Terms of Use.

The Stockopedia App is not in itself a ‘financial product’ as defined under relevant law, but it may provide financial services in the form of general financial product advice. Stockopedia is authorised to provide these services by DFGPL (AFSL 521404).

We may also provide general financial product advice to you on securities via another financial services provider (e.g. an adviser), who has a subscription to use the Stockopedia App. General advice you receive from us under this arrangement will be sourced by your other financial service provider separate from the Stockopedia App and provided to you in a written report form, which will include our details.

Where we provide general financial product advice through the Stockopedia App, we act for the clients to whom these services are provided. (In the above example, the services are provided by us to an adviser – so, we act for the adviser, not for you.)

Who will be providing financial services to you?

Financial services will either be provided to you by Stockopedia through the Stockopedia App and/or Stockopedia’s employees and agents. The most relevant relationships are disclosed below.
