From this commission, we also pay a monthly fee to New Zealand Financial Services Group (NZFSG) for their license under which we are authorised to operate, and for the services and support that they provide us.

Our advice to our clients is unbiased and is in the best interest of our clients, based on their needs and requirements.

  • Always recommending the product best suited for the purpose of our clients regardless of type and amount of commission we receive.
  • Ensuring the amount of loan is in accordance with our clients identified needs.
  • Following an advice process that ensures we understand our clients needs and goals so that we can always recommend the best product to our client regardless of the type and amount of commission we will receive.
  • Providing our clients with a schedule showing commission amounts and type by product provider. This schedule is contained within each Financial Adviser’s personalised Disclosure Guide.
  • By undergoing annual training about how to manage conflicts of interest and ensuring that all our Financial Advisers are up-to-date with any changes and requirements.
