Hi Paul. Do you need authorisation for personal or general advice; to deal or to operate? I could likely assist with an afsl to deal MIS/securities, general advice only. This would work for a startup who wants to design their own fund/s and outsource the RE and custody.
The afsl is owned by a client of mine, it’s a dealing license (MIS etc). I’ll confirm their pricing and come back to you by email (mine’s email@example.com if you’d prefer to send me your email address).
