Fees or Expenses

Newpark 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.

Newpark 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

Newpark 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 Newpark 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.

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 Newpark’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.
