The financial advice will consider the information you provide us about your individual and specific needs, financial situation or goals.
Most of our financial advice will not incur a fee as the product provider pays us.
RSFA may charge a fee for obtaining finance for property development purposes, bridging finance, complex lending advice and related consultancy work or getting a loan through a non-bank specialist lender. The actual fee charged to you will depend on the nature and scope of the advice or service we provide.
We will discuss and agree on the actual fees with you before we proceed and explain how they are payable. The fees charged for our advice and services may be based on a combination of a set dollar amount; or a percentage-based fee. The fee will be payable when your loan is settled.
Other amounts payable
In most cases, RSFA does not charge any fee, expense or another amount for the financial advice provided to you or for implementing that advice. The product providers pay our remuneration by way of commission.
RSFA may charge a fee for the financial advice provided to a client where a client cancels a life or health insurance policy within 24 months of inception or repays their home loan within 28 months of settlement. Whether a fee will be charged and how it will be charged will be advised when the advice is provided to the client. This fee will be payable by the client within 7 days of the issuance of an invoice.
For home loans and insurance, RSFA and the financial adviser receive commissions from the lender or insurance company on whose products we offer advice. If you decide to take out insurance or a home loan, the insurer or lender will pay a commission to RSFA and your financial adviser. The amount of commission is based on the amount of the premium or home loan.
For KiwiSaver, the provider pays between $40-$240 for the initial advice we provide to clients and/or a commission of 0.1% and 0.5% of funds under management.
To ensure that our financial advisers prioritise the client’s interest above their own, we follow an advice process that ensures our recommendations are based on the client’s goals and circumstances. All our financial advisers undergo annual training about how to manage conflicts of interest. We undertake a compliance audit and yearly review of our compliance programme by a reputable compliance consultancy firm.
RSFA, and anyone who gives financial advice on our behalf, have duties under the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 relating to how we give advice. We are required to:
