What If Planning Ltd, (FSP648749), trading as “Moneta” holds a license issued by the Financial Markets Authority to provide financial advice.
Moneta and our financial advisers provide advice to our clients about their investments, personal and business insurance.
We provide advice and service around the following;
Insurance - Life, Trauma, Income, and Health Insurance
Investment - KiwiSaver, Managed Funds, Fixed Return Investments, and Retirement and Financial Independence Planning
We only provide financial advice about products from certain providers:
For life, trauma, and income insurances, we work with seven companies – AIA, Asteron Life, CHUBB, Fidelity Life, Partners Life, Pinnacle Life and Resolution Life.
For health insurance, we work with five companies – Accuro, AIA, nib, Partners Life, and Southern Cross.
For KiwiSaver and investment products, we use ten companies – AIA, ANZ Wealth, Asteron Life, Booster, Fidelity Life, Generate, MCF, Milford, NZ Funds, Select Wealth, Summer, and Synergy (AKA Consilium).
We charge a fee for investment advice.
This fee will be calculated on the following basis:
Investment Plan - $1,000
(An additional $120 per hour if required, but this will be discussed beforehand. No surprises).
The implementation of your plan is at our cost.
We are paid a finder's fee of between $50 and $100 for a new KiwiSaver application.
We are paid to review and manage your plan by the investment companies at a rate of between 0.5% and 1% of the total money you have invested.
We are also paid to review and manage your KiwiSaver by the KiwiSaver provider at a rate of between 0% and 0.5% of the total money you have invested.
All fees exclude GST and are payable by the 20th of the month after an invoice is issued.
We may charge a fee for the financial advice provided where an insurance policy is canceled within two years of inception, to change to another provider/adviser. This fee will be based on covering our costs/expenses.
Conflicts of Interest and Incentives
For insurances, we receive commissions from the insurance companies.
If you decide to take out insurance, the insurer will pay a commission to Moneta based on the amount of the premium. If we refer you to another professional to provide a service we cannot, we may receive a referral fee.
From time to time, product providers may also reward us for the overall business we provide to them. They may give us gifts or other incentives.
To ensure that our financial advisers prioritise the clients’ interests above their own, we follow an advice process that ensures our recommendations are made on the basis of the clients’ goals and circumstances.
All our financial advisers undergo annual training about how to manage conflicts of interest.
We undertake a compliance audit, and a review of our compliance programme regularly by a reputable compliance adviser.
Moneta and anyone who gives financial advice on our behalf, have duties under the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 relating to the way that we give advice.
As per the Act we are required to:
• give priority to your interests by taking all reasonable steps to make sure our advice isn’t materially influenced by our own interests,
