Nature and Scope of the Advice:
We have a Financial Adviser who is a Principal and a Director of the Company. That person provides financial advice and investment planning services on behalf of the Company.
We provide financial advice in relation to:
- Retirement planning.
- Investment planning.
- General advice on asset protection and estate planning.
- General advice on taxation relating to investments.
- General advice on property investments.
We provide specific financial advice relating to products provided by the following product providers:

Fees or Expenses
We are remunerated by our clients directly for financial plans we prepare on their behalf. We are also remunerated by our clients, for monitoring and providing advice on their on-going investments arranged through us. This latter remuneration is deducted automatically from a client portfolio, on a monthly basis, and paid to us by the fund manager concerned. Clients are made aware of, and agree to, these fees before investment.
We do not receive commissions and/or incentive payments for investments. We do not receive other enticements for placing investments with any particular fund manager
Conflicts of Interest and Incentives
We do not believe we have conflicts although our Principal has a small shareholding in Lifetime Income Trust. Our Principal may also hold investments in Booster KiwiSaver; Integral Master Trust and Lifetime Income Trust.
As an owner of Financial Prosperity Limited, our Principal is remunerated for financial planning services provided by that company.
