It does not form part of the terms and conditions for Vested Equities products or services. The information provided on this website is not intended as, nor is it a substitute for, personal financial services advice. As this website has been prepared without consideration of any specific client's investment objectives, financial situation or needs, a financial advisor should be consulted before any investment decision is made. Readers acting on this information without first consulting an adviser do so entirely at their own risk. Where the general advice relates to the acquisition or possible acquisition of a particular financial product, the client should obtain a specific Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) relating to the relevant product and consider the PDS before making any decision about product acquisition.
