Lonsec Limited – Name Change & Office Locations
It has been over two months now since FinClear Pty Ltd (FinClear Group) announced its acquisition of Lonsec Stockbroking.
At the time, we were keen to point out that there would be little change to and its operations due to this change in ownership.
Both services and staff have remained unchanged, and the experienced team of advisers in Melbourne and Sydney continue to deliver the quality investment advice, portfolio review and execution services that they are known for.
Most importantly however, there was no need to enter any new arrangements with yourself nor any need to re-paper your clients.
As part of our sale agreement with Lonsec Fiscal, the Stockbroking business is now required to undergo both a change of business name as well as relocation to new offices.
Transition To A New Brand
The stockbroking management team felt it was important to operate under a name that explains what we do, but at the same time does not detract from your brand, as we very much understand that it’s your business that the end investor deals with.
With this in mind, we will be changing the business name to FinClear Execution Ltd.
This will come into effect as of the 19th December 2016.
What does this mean for your business?
As per the previous communications detailing the acquisition of Lonsec Stockbroking by FinClear in October there is absolutely no change to our business model.
The only changes that will be identifiable is the change of name on our contract notes, CHESS statements, our Financial Services Guide (FSG), and trading forms.
Considering the change of name will end investors be repapered?
The short answer to this is No.
Regardless of the name change there is no change to sponsorship or client agreements.
Sponsorship agreements, account opening documents, direct debit/credit authorities or permissioning around CMA live links will NOT need to be re-signed with your existing end investors.
