Editorial Policy

OUR PURPOSE

Here at No More Practice Education Pty Limited ACN 615 591 949 (NMPE), we are extremely passionate about connecting you with professional money managers (Managers) both in Australia and overseas. We do this so you can learn directly from the experts who make it their living to invest and manage money.

We want to cut out the middle man – the brands or commenters who stand between you and the direct knowledge of how professional money managers go about doing what they do – allowing you to go straight to the source.

OUR APPROACH

We believe the next generation of investors want short, entertaining and to the point education on how to grow their wealth. We take great pleasure on connecting incredibly smart people to a public that can use that knowledge to their own advantage.

At our core we are storytellers. It’s a story we were born to tell. We hope it helps you write your own wealth story.

WORK WITH A FINANCIAL ADVISER YOU TRUST

We encourage everyone to work with a financial adviser they trust. The series provides generic information only. We don’t intend this site to take away the function of a good advice partner. They will always understand your personal needs and goals in a way this community cannot.

HOW WE SELECT MANAGERS

We select the Managers to appear on our series and website based on three criteria:

  • quality ratings from our research partners, including Morningstar
  • they must have a passion to educate both professional wealth advisers and the public. All the Managers who appear on our show and on this site have a genuine desire to share what they know
  • they must be regarded as high quality by their industry peers, even if they’re not a household name. Many times in financial services there are quality boutique fund managers, who are highly regarded within the industry, but not known outside it. It is an exciting opportunity for us to be able to connect you with this calibre of investment professional.

COMMERCIAL CONSIDERATIONS

Each Manager that appears in our show or on our website pays a fee to participate in the creation of our education content. This fee is paid to NMPE.

NMPE has a strict Editorial Policy to ensure that the payments by the Managers do not influence how the series is produced and edited, and do not influence any advice given by NMPE. NMPE also has a Conflicts of Interest policy requiring the management of any conflicts that arise between your interests and the interests of NMPE, their directors and staff including founder Vanessa Stoykov who appears in the series. Further detail about our remuneration and relationships are set out in our Financial Services Guide.

By managing any conflict of interest that arises, NMPE is able to provide the series to the community without charge.

EDITORIAL POLICY

NMPE is committed to ensuring that the commercial considerations of the Managers have no influence on editorial decisions made by NMPE.

NMPE achieves this through the following actions:

  • checks and balances: the series is produced by NMPE in accordance with its obligations as an Authorised Representative. NMPE obtains a compliance signoff of all series content
  • Managers have no editorial role in the production of the series. They are permitted to review the produced content for factual accuracy only
  • NMPE Conflicts of Interest Policy: As an Authorised Representative, NMPE is required to have adequate arrangements for the management of conflicts of interest. This Policy requires:
    • the disclosure of whether any benefit is given by a Manager to NMPE and compliance with measures in the Editorial Policy to prevent such benefit having any influence on advice given by NMPE in the series
    • identification of any actual or potential conflict of interest including any financial, personal or other relationships with product providers that could inappropriately influence, or be perceived to influence, advice given by NMPE in the series, and
    • disclosure of remuneration or other benefits to be received by NMPE, its employees or directors and associates.
  • Ensuring that where historical performance of Managers is discussed, a prominent warning is given in accordance with ASIC’s Regulatory Guide 53.
  • Ensuring that where future performance of Managers is discussed, there are reasonable grounds for this information and warnings are given in accordance with ASIC’s Regulatory Guide 170.
  • Providing a proper explanation or reference to information about any rating given by a research house to a product so that the impression of a product created by any rating house accurately reflects the rating.
  • Give accurate and balanced information about products and due prominence to benefits and risks of products.
