Complaints/notification of claims to the liquidator

Investors who believe that they were provided with negligent or improper advice and/or who believe they have suffered financial loss by the actions of Sherwin Financial Planners Pty Ltd or DIY Superannuation Services Pty Ltd should urgently consider notifying the liquidator (Taylor Woodings) of their claim.

ASIC requires financial planners to hold professional indemnity insurance cover (
PI cover). PI cover is generally offered by an insurer on a 'claims made' basis - that is, any claim to which the PI cover might potentially respond needs to be made or notified within the 'period of cover'.

Notification of claims to the Administrator should be made as a matter of urgency and in any event before 31 March 2013, as there is reason to believe that the PI cover, in favour of Sherwin Financial Planners and DIY Superannuation Services Pty Ltd, may lapse on 31 March 2013. Given the fact of the entry into liquidation of Sherwin Financial Planners Pty Ltd and DIY Superannuation Services Pty Ltd it is most unlikely such PI cover will be renewed by the Administrator (or offered for renewal at a premium that is not prohibitive to the Liquidator) beyond 31 March 2013.

ASIC recommends that investors/clients of Sherwin Financial Planners Pty Ltd and DIY Superannuation Services Pty Ltd, take legal advice in relation to this issue.
