Our fees

The actual fee charged to you will depend on the nature and scope of the advice or service provided through Assura Group Ltd. I will discuss and agree the actual fees with you before we proceed and explain how they are payable. Particularly for group insurance or training-based services, these fees may be based on a set dollar amount for a fixed term contract or a percentage-based fee for an ongoing contract.

For services relating to insurance, commission may be paid to Assura Group Ltd by the product provider, with the initial commission being a percentage of the initial and renewal insurance premiums.

Other costs

Where other costs are incurred in the process of providing advice and services to you, you will be liable for these costs. These may arise from travel and accommodation costs or venue hire. I will always agree such costs in advance.

Conflicts of interest (if any)

Your interests are my priority and I will always advise you as best as we can. I also have business relationships with product providers. From time to time they provide access to professional development training, workshops and conferences.

In addition, I have developed online estate planning modules which will be distributed from 2021 through a financial services training provider. As a director and shareholder of the company that invested in the development of these, MAC Innovations NZ Limited, I will receive remuneration by way of dividends.

I manage these potential conflicts of interest by ensuring your interests are above those of my own. My advice is based on understanding your objectives and circumstances and providing recommendations which are based on research. I have a Register of Conflict which allows me to actively manage any conflicts which arise.

Internal complaints process

If you have a problem, concern or complaint about any part of my advice or service, please tell me by phoning 0274-579-480 so I can try to fix the problem. Unless there are mitigating circumstances, I will reply to you within 24 hours during a working week.
