The Dover Group

About The Dover Group

Dover encourages advisers to run their practices in line with their own business plans. Dover does not require you to recommend specific financial products or meet any minimum funds under management or sales quotas. You are free to run your practice the way you want to run your practice. Our sole interest is compliance.

Dover encourages advisers to prepare statements of advice that deal with the wide range of issues facing clients, not just financial products. Dover emphasises SOAs that place the adviser at the centre of the client’s affairs with a need for on-going advice and assistance over the client’s financial life. We encourage you to discuss issues such as home ownership, buying or starting a business, tax planning, investing in the home, negative gearing, debt management, self-managed superannuation, direct shares, home improvements, life coaching and estate planning. Whatever is in your client’s best interests.

Dover is not connected to any financial institutions. This means Dover is truly product neutral and free of institutional bias. Dover does not tell advisers how to run their practices. Dover lets you run your practice the way you believe is best for your clients.

Dover has industry leading systems in place to ensure SOAs meet ASIC’s requirements, are in your client’s best interests and are appropriate to your client. Dover emphasises short, easy to read SOAs that allow your client to make an informed decision about accepting your advice and acting on your recommendations.

Dover has a culture of compliance and involves advisers in all aspects of its ASIC compliance program, from its detailed Combined Adviser Handbook and Compliance Manual to weekly up-dates on practical compliance matters. Every SOA is reviewed by our legal team, and every contentious SOA is reviewed before it goes to your client. Dover’s solicitors can even write your SOA for you. Dover’s emphasis on ASIC compliance means you have maximum protection from litigation and similar risks, and can achieve “best practice” in all aspects of your professional life.
