As such, any information or advice we provide does not take into account your objectives, financial situation or needs. Accordingly, before acting on any information or general advice we provide (including deciding whether to acquire or hold a product), investors should consider the appropriateness of such advice or information to their particular circumstances and read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) for the Fund, available on the DomaCom website at www.domacom.com.au or by phoning 1300 365 930.

What financial services are available through DomaCom?

DomaCom holds an AFSL (No. 444365) under the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth).

DomaCom is authorised under its AFSL to provide general financial product advice to retail and wholesale clients on the following classes of financial products:

  • deposit and payment products limited to basic deposit products and securities; and
  • interests in managed investment schemes excluding investor directed portfolio services.

DomaCom is also authorised to deal in financial products. In particular, DomaCom is authorised to:

  • issue, apply for, acquire, vary or dispose of interests in managed investment schemes excluding investor directed portfolio services; and
  • apply for, acquire, vary or dispose of a financial product on behalf of another person in respect of deposit and payment products limited to basic deposit products and securities.

DomaCom is also authorised to make a market in units in sub funds of the Fund. DomaCom intends to make a market in units (that is, to regularly state prices at which it is willing to buy and sell units in a sub-fund) and it will provide the facility for the buying and selling of units on the DomaCom platform. DomaCom acting on its own behalf, may bid or offer to buy and sell units in a sub-fund from time to time, at its discretion entirely and will stipulate the prices at which it will do so. MSC is the issuer of the financial product under the PDS and the relevant supplementary Product Disclosure Statement. However, MSC is not involved in any way with the liquidity facility.

When providing these financial services, we act on our own behalf.

Our Client Services team does not have any alliance with any other fund manager.

What are the fees, charges and commissions?

Managing the Fund

DomaCom does not charge retail clients fees for any information or general advice provided to retail clients. DomaCom as Investment Manager of the Fund receives a management fee from MSC . The fees payable for investing in the Fund are described in detail in the PDS which is available on our website at www.domacom.com.au. The management fee payable to DomaCom cannot exceed 0.22% per annum (inc. GST) for the value of investments in the Fund Cash Pool (as defined in the PDS) and 0.88% per annum (inc. GST) for the value of investments in a sub fund of the Fund (as defined in the PDS).

There are no commissions payable to DomaCom for any general advice or services delivered. No rebates are payable to DomaCom in relation to its services relating to the Fund. DomaCom staff receive a salary that incorporates base salary along with bonuses and other benefits from time to time.

Making a Market

DomaCom will charge a fee of 2.75 (0.0275%) basis points inclusive of GST on the consideration it pays or receives when it buys or sells units in a sub fund in the course of making a market for those units.

Insurance and Compensation coverage

Under the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) (Act), and regulations made under that Act, DomaCom as the holder of an Australian Financial Services Licence is required to have professional indemnity insurance that is adequate having regard to the nature of our business and the potential for compensation claims.

DomaCom has an investment managers’ insurance policy in place which covers professional indemnity, crime, information technology and directors’ and officers’ liability insurance. DomaCom is satisfied with the adequacy of that cover. The cover available to DomaCom extends to include losses arising from the conduct of former employees or representatives of DomaCom (which occurred during their employment with, or service for DomaCom) as if those persons were still employed by, or were still representatives of DomaCom. Senior management reviews the insurance coverage and policies annually.

These arrangements satisfy the requirements for compensation as required under the Act.
