Conflicts of interests and incentives

For the above products, Financial Wellenss Partners and the financial adviser receive commissions from the financial services company on whose policies we give advice. The amount of the commission is based on the amount of the premium, or the amount of funds under management.

 

To ensure that our financial advisers prioritise our clients’ interests above their own, we

follow an advice process that ensures our recommendations are made on the basis of each client’s goals and circumstances. We maintain registers of conflicts of interests, and the gifts and incentives we receive. Financial Wellness Partners monitors these registers and provides additional training where necessary.
