How does one find those companies that one can become an authorised representative of (assuming they have the authorisations one needs)?

Thanks for your question.
ASIC maintains registers of both AFSL holders showing their authorised representatives, and of authorised representatives showing their licensees. However, there is no easy way to find a licensee with the particular authorisations you require. You may or may not find that licensees listed on the ASIC register are willing to appoint authorised representatives. Depending on the industry you are in, the best course may be to seek potential leads from industry bodies, but you will otherwise need to rely on your own network.
Becoming an authorised representative is a big decision and there are several things you need to consider. We would recommend that you familiarise yourself with the procedures and obligations located here. This will ensure that the AFS licensee you identify as a potential partner not only has the necessary authorisations, but is a good cultural fit for your business. You should also bear in mind that there are some financial services that only a licensee can provide.
Please feel free to contact our Financial Services Team for further information.
