Our dealing service

ASX and other exchange listed investments, including offshore exchanges (Listed investments):

Canary offers retail and wholesale clients access to the listed markets via 3rd party market participants (MP) we hire to provide such access.

Under our guidance our clients apply for an account with the MP directly filling in MP forms and supplying relevant identification.  The MP will supply their own FSG when you apply for an account.  All cash movements and settlements are handled by MP independently of Canary. Clients may also fill in forms supplied by Canary.  Canary interacts with both the MP and clients accessing the MP platform.

We act for our clients and we are not agents of the MP.  We hire the MP on a commercial basis.  A client will interact with a Canary representative and be clients of Canary not an MP.  A client will deal through Canary and the MP platform because they want access to Canary’s recommendations and service level.

You can deal with Canary via a phone or email order to a representative which will then be transacted into the MP platform.


Canary will assist you with the application process for unlisted investments and margin loans

How are we paid?

Listed investments:

Canary receives a share from an MP of the negotiated brokerage you are charged to trade.  The brokerage you pay to an MP when transacting is all you pay, there are no other fees.

Any initial public offerings (IPO) or secondary raisings that Canary representatives distribute to you may earn fees for the Canary representatives paid for by the issuers.  You will be informed about any potential fees we may receive prior to dealing.

Canary’s representatives receive a share, subject to the conflicted remuneration laws, of the brokerage, IPO and secondary raising fees, if any, that Canary receives from the MP.
