Financial Advice Provider & Adviser Disclosure Statement

Financial Advice Provider [FAP]: Financial Insight NZ Limited

Financial Adviser [FA]: Gregory A. Coldicutt

This Disclosure Statement is effective: 15th March 2021

LICENSING INFORMATION:

Financial Insight NZ Limited (FSP72251) holds a transitional licence issued by the Financial Markets Authority to provide financial advice. Gregory A. Coldicutt is a licenced Financial Adviser (FSP67081) contracted to Financial Insight NZ Limited. He advises on life assurance and associated financial services products.

NATURE & SCOPE OF ADVICE:

Financial Insight NZ Limited provides advice to our clients about life insurance, trauma insurance, disability or income protection insurance, and health insurance. For our KiwiSaver and superannuation clients, we refer them to a trusted external Investment Adviser under a separate Agreement.

We provide financial advice about products from leading providers:

  • For life assurance, we choose to work with our preferred carriers, namely AIA NZ, Asteron, Fidelity, and Cigna.
  • For health insurance, we choose to work with our preferred carriers, namely AIA NZ and nib.
  • We also hold agencies with Booster and Fisher Funds for ancillary products.

FEES, EXPENSES, and INCENTIVES:

Financial Insight NZ Limited is primarily a ‘commission only’ agency, meaning we are paid a commission by the Insurer upon inception of an insurance policy and a small annual commission ongoing, based on the premium payable. However, in limited cases, a fee for service may be charged at a specified rate, advised to the client before the advice is given.

Your Financial Adviser, Gregory A. Coldicutt, is paid by Financial Insight NZ Limited.

In addition, Financial Insight NZ Limited may charge a fee for the financial advice provided to a client where a client cancels a life or health policy within two years of inception. Whether a fee will be charged and the way it will be charged will be advised when the advice is provided to the client. This fee will be payable by the client by the 20th of the month after the policy is cancelled.

Further, to ensure our financial advisers prioritise our clients’ interests above their own, we follow an advice process that ensures our recommendations are made based on each clients’ goals and circumstances only. As such, neither Financial Insight NZ Limited nor our financial advisers receive any incentives from Insurers. To do so may have the effect of bias on the financial advice provided to the client, and so we diligently avoid such incentives.
