Things you should know

 

If you qualify for a GO Professional account you will be treated and classified as a Wholesale Client. This means that you will not be treated the same as a Retail client who would be afforded additional investor protections under Chapter 7 of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) (Act).

We will continue to fully segregate your money and assets in the same way as before – in accordance with the client money provisions of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth).

Please note that you will not be entitled to the following protections under the Corporation Act 2001 (Cth)

  • You will not benefit from the protections afforded under ASIC’s product intervention measures for CFDs, including leverage restrictions and negative balance protection.
  • You will not be given a Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) or Financial Services Guide (FSG).
  • The applicable Future of Financial Advice (FoFa) requirements relating to conflicted remuneration will not apply to you.
  • GO Markets is not required to provide you with access to our Internal Dispute Resolution scheme but we’ll still make this service available to you at no cost.
  • While you can still access the external dispute resolution provider Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA), you may be treated differently given your status as an experienced wholesale investor and AFCA may exclude your matter at their discretion.

Please consider the risks and other important information detailed in the Wholesale Clients Trading Information Statement and CFDs Trading Terms and Conditions.
