We never provide financial advice without first considering a person's individual circumstances and all our financial advice is provided in a written form inside a Statement of Advice document (SoA).
(yep it's different from financial advice - we think that's crazy too.)
Drew Browne is an Authorised Credit Representative of Australian Credit Licensee Vision Aggregation Credit License number #389961 ABN 50 867 155 934. He will be acting on behalf of the ACL if he recommends credit products to you later after considering your circumstances.
And just so we are clear, advice about residential property investment is provided by Drew Browne of Sapience Financial, and not provided by our AFSL.
And just while we're on the topic of whose responsible for what, and who provides the very helpful information on this site, the Good Advice in our Blog is compiled by the complex mind of Drew Browne (unless otherwise stated or linked to its author) and not by our AFSL.
The Sapience Group of clever brands recognise individuals may identify and be recognised within the community as a gender other than the sex they were assigned at birth or during infancy, or as a gender which is not exclusively male or female. Persons with diverse sexual orientation and or diverse characteristics are encouraged to identify as they so choose. Where sex and/or gender information is collected and recorded in a personal record, individuals are given the option to select M (male), F (female) or X (Indeterminate/Intersex/Unspecified).
We are a purpose-designed Trauma Informed Organisation. (TIO) This means we have reconsidered and evaluated all the components of our financial advice system through an understanding of the impact of violence and trauma in the lives of people and those we seek to serve.

The Sapience Group of clever brands where possible use eSignatures (electronic signatures) to save our clients time and preserve their privacy. Our eSignature platform is managed by DocuSign. Electronic Signatures have been recognised by law in Australia since 1999, with the passage of the Electronic Transactions Act. Additionally, the Insurance Contracts Amendment Act 2013 (Cth) specifically allows for the use of electronic communication.
Sapience holds a number of professional memberships.
Financial Advisers in Australia are familiar with the obligations of the FASEA Code of Ethics – requiring Advisers amongst other things, to develop and maintain high-levels of relevant skills and act with integrity and put the needs of the client before our own.
FASEA Code of Ethics Standard 12 introduces a new enforceable concept on financial advisers.
- 'Individually and in cooperation with peers, you must uphold and promote the ethical standards of the profession, and hold each other accountable for the protection of the public interest'.
If you are a Financial Adviser outside our network of clients, friends and supporters, please do not go through our systems pretending to be a prospective client or and representing yourself as a future potential client, just to gain our intellectual property. We, like you are obligated to comply fully with the FASEA Code of Ethics and report unethical behaviour.
The right to Privacy is the core of a civilized society.
'No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor attacks upon his honour and reputation.' - Universal Declaration of Human Rights
