Design and Distribution Obligations (DDO) is intended to help consumers obtain appropriate financial products by requiring issuers and advisers to have a consumer-centric approach to designing and distributing products. Three ways the obligations help consumers.
- Product issuers such as Fidante Partners, need to design financial products that are consistent with the likely objectives, financial situation and needs of the customers for whom they are intended.
- Product issuers and distributors, need to take ‘reasonable steps’ to ensure the financial products reach customers in the target market; and
- Product issuers need to monitor customer outcomes and review their financial products to ensure that customers are receiving financial products that are likely to be consistent with their likely objectives, financial situation, and needs.
