CONFLICTS OF INTEREST
Thompson Financial Services Limited (also trading as Super Sure) has an agreement for services with Ignite (a service company that does not provide financial advice). IGNITE has a preferred investment provider agreement with Fisher Funds Management Limited (Fisher Funds) relating to investments placed with Fisher Funds by IGNITE member clients, and a dealership agreement with nib nz Limited (nib) relating to insurance cover provided by nib for IGNITE member clients.
Under those agreements, IGNITE receives a fee equal to a small percentage of the investments placed with Fisher Funds and premiums paid to nib. No portion of any such fee is paid to Thompson Financial Services Limited (or Super Sure) or its advisers, and we aren’t under any obligation to place any particular level of business with either Fisher Funds or nib, but Thompson Financial Services Limited indirectly benefits from those fees through the IGNITE member services they help fund.
We manage the resulting conflict of interest by ensuring our advisers only recommend Fisher Funds investment products or nib insurance products where the adviser is satisfied that those products provide the best outcome for our clients, when compared with any other product we are able to recommend, having regard to the nature and scope of the service agreed with the client.
For life insurance and health insurance, Thompson Financial Services Limited (and Super Sure) and the financial adviser receive commissions from the insurance companies whose policies we can recommend. If you decide to take out insurance that we recommend, the insurer will pay a commission to Thompson Financial Services Limited (also trading as Super Sure). The amount of the commission is based on the amount of premium associated with your cover; specific commissions will be advised to you when advice is provided.
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.
To ensure that our financial advisers prioritise the client’s interests above their own and to manage the potential conflicts of interest as disclosed above, all Thompson Financial Services Limited (and Super Sure) advisers follow an advice process that ensures personalised recommendations are made on the basis of the client’s goals and circumstances, as advised by the client. Thompson Financial Services Limited (and Super Sure) financial advisers complete regular training, including how to manage conflicts of interest. Each adviser has a regular compliance review of their advice process and our compliance programme is reviewed annually by our external compliance adviser.
