Our advice services: How we operate
To ensure that our financial advisers prioritise the client’s interests above their own, we follow a robust advice process to ensure our recommendations are made on the basis of the client’s goals and circumstances.
One Partner Limited, and anyone who gives financial advice on our behalf, have duties under the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 relating to the way that we give advice.
We are required to:
- Give priority to your interests by taking all reasonable steps to make sure our advice isn’t materially influenced by our own interests
- Exercise care, diligence, and skill in providing you with advice
- Meet standards of competence, knowledge and skill set by the Code of Professional Conduct for Financial Advice Services (these are designed to make sure that we have the expertise needed to provide you with advice)
- Meet standards of ethical behaviour, conduct and client care set by the Code of Professional Conduct for Financial Advice Services (these are designed to make sure we treat you as we should, and give you suitable advice).
This is only a summary of the duties that we have. More information is available by contacting us, or by visiting the Financial Markets Authority website at https://www.fma.govt.nz.
Fees and Remuneration
One Partner Limited may charge an Introducer Fee of up to $995 and our lenders charge an Establishment Fee which can vary from $80 up to $450 depending on the Lender. These fees are added on to the loan amount you are borrowing.
One Partner may also be remunerated in either of these ways depending on the lender:
1. Commission: We may receive a commission from the lender when a loan is completed. The commission amount is a percentage of the loan amount and will vary depending on the lender.
2. Interest Income: A portion of the interest payable by you to the lender based on the amount financed and the term of the loan, paid to us at settlement.
If we help you obtain Credit or Asset Insurance from Provident Insurance, Autosure or Quest Insurance, in conjunction with a vehicle or personal loan, we may receive a commission from that insurance provider.
Conflicts of Interest; Commissions and Incentives
One Partner Limited receives income from lenders. This income varies depending on the lender.
From time to time, product providers may also reward us for the overall business we provide to them. They may give us tickets to sports events, hampers, or other incentives. We maintain registers of conflicts of interests, and the gifts and incentives we receive.
We take any perceived or real conflicts of interest very seriously and have a dedicated policy for dealing with such issues whereby we avoid, disclose and/or manage any conflicts so that our client’s interests are placed first and foremost.
All our financial advisers undergo annual training about how to manage conflicts of interest. We undertake a compliance audit, and a review of our compliance programme annually.
