Fostering a thriving future for financial advice

Our commitment to our members is this: we will work tirelessly to help build a New Zealand in which getting advice is an intrinsic part of life – a valued and trusted service that Kiwis naturally look for.

As your professional body, 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. And of course, you can count on us to help you navigate the changing environment – be that regulatory change or technological advances.

As a member of Financial Advice New Zealand, amongst many benefits, you’ll be part of an association that’s constantly out in the public helping Kiwis understand quality advice; you’ll stand out from the crowd as an adviser committed to quality outcomes for Kiwis; and you’ll be supported by a decisive and active voice that advocates for your needs and seeks opportunities to make a positive difference.

Join us to forge a new era for financial advice in New Zealand.
