Getting help with the financial decisions that matter to you
I specialise in Risk Insurance, Personal Loan, and KiwiSaver. Based on your request or information gathered from you, my scope of service to you for insurance products will be one of them:
√ Personalised Advice: My advice and recommendations will be personalised to your specific situation, taking into account your goals, objectives,
personal situation, or your specific needs.√ Product Advice only: I will make product recommendation options for you as you do not want personalised advice. You will decide the coverage
type and amount according to your current budget.√ Execution only/ No advice: You know what you want, you don’t want advice and you are looking for assistance with acquiring or disposing of insurance
products. √ Referral Service: In this service, I will refer to an in-house specialist for Fire & General Insurance and Lending for more specialist help.
It is your responsibility to provide me with accurate and relevant information at the time that the initial information is being gathered by way of the Fact Find or Needs Analysis, whichever takes place first. If you provide me with incomplete or inaccurate information, I may not be able to provide you with the advice, products or services you are seeking.It is important that you understand your obligation to provide me with accurate and relevant information in order for the financial services provider to appropriately assess the risk and make an informed decision about the products you may be seeking.For insurance/lending products, in order for the insurer/lender to assess the risk and the appropriate premium, the law requires you to disclose all the information you know, or should know, that would influence the judgment of a prudent insurer/lender in deciding whether or not to insure you or to provide credit, and if so on what terms and at what cost. This is called your duty of disclosure. For example, you should disclose your current income, medical history, and all information about insured and uninsured losses and claims.

Fees, Expenses and Conflicts of Interest
When I arrange insurance for you, the provider(s) may pay us a commission or fee or both. The amount of the commission or fee varies between providers and products and is based on a percentage of the Annual Premium or Total Lending (if applicable). The commission varies from .45% to 230% or the fee from $40 to $390. Insurance Network retains a percentage of this commission or fee for the services they provide to me. The providers also may pay a renewal fee or commission when your policy or lending annually renews. This amount can vary from .15% to 15%. I don't get paid an incentive if you take a product I recommend. However, a portion of my commission/pay is determined by the performance of Insurance Network and/or my team and by the quality of my work.
Insurance Network and I do not charge any fees or commission for the advice or work I provide to you. There are no other fees at this time, however, if you cancel the insurance or lending partway through the cancellation period of 24 months from the commencement of the policy or lending, Insurance Network will charge the total commission clawed back from the provider.
