Helping Kiwis Thrive

In 2018, Financial Advice New Zealand was created by three founding bodies – the PAA, IFA and NZFAA. We represent the interests of the public and our members, and strive to help Kiwis, and New Zealand as a whole, be financially better-off.

WE WORK TOWARDS OUR VISION BY…

Representing the interests of the public: For Kiwis, you can count on us to make your interests the priority in any initiative, change or discussion. You can count on us to be the voice for quality advice; to support quality advisers; and to make a stand when your interests could be better served.

Representing the interests of our members: For our members, you can count on us to champion the role of quality advice, and you – the individual that helps Kiwis thrive. You can count on us to invigorate pride and trust in your profession, and to drive widespread awareness of the value you offer.

The most essential element of financial well being is quality financial advice. By helping advisers do what they do best, and helping more Kiwis access quality advice, together we’ll help New Zealand be financially better off.

Standards

We stand for quality advice and advisers and a commitment to high professional standards. In early 2019 we’ll be launching our Quality Service Mark – a trusted mark of distinction for advisers and Kiwis

Advocacy

We’re dedicated to influencing policy so that more New Zealanders can benefit from the value of advice, and so that advisers are well supported in providing this crucial service and sharing their expertise.

Promotion

Quality advice changes lives for the better. We’re dedicated to helping more New Zealanders understand what good advice is, how to find it, and what they should expect from a quality adviser.
