 If you decide to take out insurance or take our KiwiSaver advice, the provider will pay a commission to Allcover Financial Limited and to your financial adviser. The amount of commission is based on the amount of the premium 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 the client’s interests above their own, we follow an advice process that ensures our recommendations are made on the basis of the client’s goals and circumstances.

 All our financial advisers undergo annual training about how to manage conflicts of interest. We maintain registers of conflicts of interests, and the gifts and incentives we receive.
