Fidante Product Information
Each Fidante product has its own unique features and risks (which include possible loss of money invested and fluctuating investment returns). These particular features and risks are set out in the relevant product disclosure statement (PDS) or other offer document (as the case may be). You should always consider whether or not a particular Fidante product is appropriate for you in light of your particular needs, objectives and financial circumstances. In particular, you should:
understand the relevant product's features and risks;
- consider seeking independent advice (particularly about such individual matters as taxation, retirement planning and investment risk tolerance); and
- read the relevant current PDS or other offer document and Target Market Determination (TMD) (if applicable) relevant to the Fidante product,
when making an investment decision. All such PDSs or offer documents or TMDs are available free of charge on this website, or by contacting your financial adviser or calling the Fidante Investor Services team on 1300 721 637.
