About this Financial Services Guide

This is our Financial Services Guide (FSG) for products of QBE Insurance. This and similar documents that cover our other licensees make up our FSG.  The FSG has been designed to assist you in deciding whether to use the financial services we provide.  It explains the kinds of financial services we offer. It also contains general information about who we are, how we are paid and how to make a complaint.

Where required we will also provide you with a Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) before or at the time you buy any financial product as a retail client. The PDS sets out the significant features of the product and is designed to assist you to make informed choices about the financial product.

About Mitti Insurance

Mitti Insurance is an Authorised Representative (AR) of QBE Insurance (Australia) Limited (QBE)

We are authorised by QBE  to deal in general insurance products on their behalf.  These may include home building, home contents, private motor, pleasure craft, residential landlord, caravan, domestic trailer and motorcycle insurance.

We can directly issue, vary or cancel QBE insurance products as their agent in accordance with their underwriting guidelines (this is called a binder authority). In some cases we may need to arrange for QBE to do this if we are not able to act under our binder authority.

QBE as the insurer of the product and we, as their agent, do not act on your behalf.

The Mitti Insurance advisor providing you with this FSG is authorised by us to act on our behalf in providing the services we are authorised to provide for QBE Insurance.

We are authorised to give financial product advice. The nature of the advice we are giving you is general advice only. We are not able to tell you whether a product is appropriate for you specifically. Because of this, you need to consider the appropriateness of any general advice or information given having regard to your personal objectives, financial situation and needs. We strongly recommend that you read the information contained in the Product Disclosure Statement provided to you before you make a decision.

The distribution of this FSG has been authorised by QBE Insurance.
