Reliability HistoryNeither iNSNET nor I have been subject to a reliability event. A reliability event is something that might materially influence you in deciding whether to seek advice from me or from iNSNET. As an example, it would include legal proceedings against me, or if I had been discharged from bankruptcy in the last four years.
Fees and ExpensesShould you proceed with my financial advice and I arrange insurance for you, then a fee for implementing my financial advice may be charged. While I am unable to provide you with an estimate of the fee at this time, I will confirm this with you in my recommendation. There are no other fees at this time, however if you cancel the insurance (risk) part way through the insurance period of 24 months the commencement of the insurance policy, iNSNET will charge the total commission clawed back from the insurer. Conflicts of Interest and IncentivesWhen we arrange insurance for you, the provider(s) may pay iNSNET a commission. The amount of the commission varies between providers and products. For Fire and General Insurance, the amount of commission is based on the Company and Natural Disaster Premium and can range from 7% - 30%, depending on the insurance product involved. For Life and Health Insurances the amount of commission is between 10% and 230% of the first year’s premiums of your policy – the amount depends on which insurance company and which insurance policy you choose. iNSNET will also receive a commission of between 4% and 30% of the premium for each year the policy remains in force. For mortgage and premium funding loans we are paid a commission up to 2% of the total loan amount or interest charged on the term of the funding loan. I, follow an advice process that ensures my recommendations are made on the basis of the client’s goals and circumstances. I undergo annual training about how to manage conflicts of interest. For all transactions, I will provide a remuneration disclosure at the time of providing you advice if my remuneration is known. This will include a breakdown of the commission and any applicable administration fee for our services rendered. I don't get paid an incentive if you take a product I recommend. However, a portion of my commission is determined by the performance of iNSNET and/or my team and by the quality of my work.
