What kinds of financial products and services can Zeller provide?

Zeller is authorised by EML to provide general financial product advice to retail and wholesale clients in relation to deposit and payment products limited to:

  1. Basic deposit products; and

  2. Non-cash payment products.

The Card is a facility for making non-cash payments (a reloadable prepaid Mastercard product) issued by EML.

This means that Zeller can:

  1. Arrange for the issue of the Card by EML to you;

  2. Provide general financial advice in relation to the Card; and

  3. Publish or issue certain promotional material in relation to the Card.

 

Zeller and its associated companies are not authorised to provide (and EML itself does not provide) personal advice about financial products. Personal advice is advice when your objectives, financial situation or needs have been or would be expected to be considered. This means that Zeller will not take your objectives, financial situation or needs into account whenever it gives general advice (in publishing or issuing promotional material) about the Card.

It is your responsibility to decide whether any general financial advice given by Zeller in its promotional material is suitable for you, or to get personal advice from a financial adviser who holds an Australian Financial Services licence or who is an Authorised Representative of an Australian Financial Services licence and who is authorised to provide personal advice.

Zeller can only provide general advice on basic deposit and non-cash payment products limited to the Card. Zeller cannot advise you on, or influence you in favour of, a financial product that is not a product that we are authorised to provide advice on.

Please be aware that EML shall not be responsible where the Representative provides any services to you, which are outside of their authorisation limits. You should therefore ask the Representative to confirm specifically that the service or product relates to deposit and non-cash payment products, prior to acting on any general advice.

 

A Product Disclosure Statement will be provided to you

Before or at the time you are offered the Card, EML or Zeller will also provide you with, or explain how to access, a Product Disclosure Statement ("PDS") for the Card. The PDS contains information about the costs, benefits, risks and other features of the recommended financial product. You should read this information to enable you to make an informed decision prior to acquiring the Card.

 

Can I provide Zeller with instructions?

You may provide the Authorised Representative with specific instructions by letter, email or other means (as agreed with the Authorised Representative).

 

Disclosure of any relevant conflicts of interest

EML and Zeller are not related entities. Zeller does not have any relationships or associations that might influence them in providing you with its services.

 

How are EML paid for providing financial services?

Fees and Charges to be paid by the Cardholder (all fees quoted are inclusive of GST)

Fee Description

Fee Amount

Foreign exchange fee

2.99%

Disputed transaction fee (per transaction)

$10.10

The table above represents a summary of the fees payable by the Cardholder to EML in connection with the Card. Further information, including details of other fees, is contained in the PDS for the Card.

EML receives interest income from Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited ABN 11 005 357 522 (AFSL 234527) (“ANZ”) (an Authorised Deposit Taking Institution) on the total cardholder funds held in ANZ’s accounts in relation to the Card. This interest income cost is not borne by Cardholders. Employees of EML do not receive, whether directly or indirectly, any fee, commission, benefit or advantage (pecuniary or otherwise) in connection with the financial services provided.

Zeller directors and staff are remunerated by salary that includes superannuation benefits. Zeller’s staff may also be eligible for an annual bonus payment based on agreed performance levels. Employees of Zeller do not receive, whether directly or indirectly, any fee, commission, benefit or advantage (pecuniary or otherwise) in connection with the financial services provided.

The Available Balance on your Card is in Australian dollars. Transactions made in a currency other than Australian dollars will be subject to the prevailing Mastercard exchange rate at the time plus a 2.99% foreign exchange fee.

Example of Foreign Exchange Fee:

          You make a purchase from a merchant located outside Australia (e.g. USA);
          At the time, Mastercard’s prevailing exchange rate is US$1.00 = $0.95 Australian; You spend US$200.00;
          The Australian dollar amount is US$200.00 x $0.95 = $190.00; The foreign exchange fee is therefore 2.99% x $190.00 = $5.68

 

EML’s record keeping obligations

EML will seek to ensure that comprehensive and accurate records of all services and products and client dealings are properly maintained.
