Not all of SHARE’s financial advisers will be able to provide advice in relation to all of these financial advice products or from all of these providers.  For more information about the financial advice products that each adviser can provide and from which providers, please see our section in Find My Adviser.

Fees or Expenses

SHARE does not charge fees, expenses or any other amount for the financial advice provided to clients unless these are agreed in advance with the client such as, for example, in the particular circumstances set out below.

SHARE may charge a fee for the financial advice provided to a client where a client repays or refinances a mortgage or cancels a life or health insurance policy within two years of inception. Whether a fee will be charged and the manner in which it will be charged will be advised when the advice is provided to the client.

Conflicts of Interest and Incentives

SHARE and our financial advisers receive commissions from the providers on whose products we give financial advice (the lenders, insurers, investment providers and KiwiSaver providers). If you decide to take out a mortgage, insurance, investments, or to take our KiwiSaver advice, the provider will pay a commission to SHARE and to your financial adviser. The amount of commission is based on the amount of the mortgage, insurance premium, amount invested or the KiwiSaver balance.

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.

Most of SHARE’s advisers have a financial interest in the business of SHARE as a shareholder of SHARE NZ Limited and/or its wholly owned subsidiary SHARE NZ Service Limited.  Any issue of shares, payment of dividends or other distributions to shareholders by SHARE NZ Limited and/or SHARE NZ Services Limited has no effect on the service provided.

To ensure that our financial advisers prioritise your interests above their own, we operate a comprehensive and robust framework of policies and procedures and follow an advice process that ensures our recommendations are made on the basis of your goals and circumstances.  Our financial advisers undergo an annual compliance review and receive training about SHARE’s policies and procedures including managing conflicts of interest. We maintain and monitor registers of conflicts of interests, and the gifts and incentives we receive.

Complaints and Dispute Resolution

If you are not satisfied with the service you have received from SHARE please contact us.  We have an internal complaints process and undertake to investigate your concerns promptly and fairly.

Please contact your adviser directly in the first instance and you may contact us to make a complaint by telephone or in writing and preferably by email at admin@sharenz.com.

We will attempt to address your complaint with your adviser in the first instance and, if necessary, will escalate the complaint to SHARE’s Chief Executive Officer for a final determination.  We will let you know when we have received your complaint and will generally respond to your complaint within 10 business days.

If you feel your complaint has not been resolved to your satisfaction, then you should contact the adviser’s independent dispute resolution provider, which in most cases will be the Financial Dispute Resolution Service (www.fdrs.org.nz).

This service will cost you nothing and you can contact them at
