Upcoming Webinars

Wednesday 13 October – Taking care of your clients when you can’t – how to include a locum adviser agreement in your BCP

You’re a solo adviser running your own Licensed FAP. Let’s talk about why is having a locum adviser agreement is a good strategy.

How does a locum adviser fit in with your plans to continue to service your clients in the event that you are not available?

It could be a long holiday or an unexpected event that requires someone else to step in and look after your business when you cannot. Planning for this type of event is key to being able to continually meet your FAP licence conditions. 

We will uncover what you need to consider, what to arrange and how we can help you meet your obligations and look after your clients in your absence from your business.

Your Business Continuity Plan should refer to this plan with all the details required to activate this arrangement.

This is a not to be missed webinar which will also have some tools which you can implement in your business.

Wednesday 20 October – Staying compliant with business replacement strategies

Replacement of products can be contentious when it is seen to be maximising advisers revenue. However, we know  good advice allows the adviser to recommend the best solution to meet the needs and goals of their clients.

In this webinar we have a panel of experts to discuss the key principles to making sure any replacement of products result in good outcomes for your clients. Business being replaced is not only insurance but could be mortgage refinance or switching KiwiSaver funds too.

Our panel from each of these product sectors will give practical examples of what they are seeing as good practice and guidance to help you stay compliant with this important part of your advice process.

Michelle Sargeant – National Sales Manager, Pepper Money

Wednesday 27 October – Panel discussion with the experts – The new competency requirements – do you know what they are?

To provide regulated financial advice under the new regime, you need to comply with the Code of Professional Conduct for Financial Advice Standards. In particular, Part 2 – Competence, Knowledge and Skill. These have changed in the new regime and for some financial advisers the competency requirements are much higher. If you breach these competency standards it will impact on your FAP and you as a financial adviser.

Did you know there is a safe harbour? Do you qualify? What if you change the type of advice you are providing? Is KiwiSaver advice considered investment advice?

In this webinar we will drill into what competency means and how to meet your obligations. Derek Grantham (FMA) will facilitate a panel discussion with special guests Angus Dale Jones (Code Committee Chair), Kath Williams (SKILLS), and John Botica (FMA).
