Fees & Expenses

Any remuneration received by For Life Investments Ltd is used to pay the costs incurred in providing advice, e.g., office, staff, research, and marketing costs, along with personal remuneration for your adviser.

We are remunerated through the following ways:

The initial meetings you have with us are FREE.

The insurance companies pay our professional fees on completion of the underwriting process when a policy is issued by way of commissions. These commissions can be clawed back by the insurance company if the policy is cancelled in the first two years.

For Life Investments Ltd may charge you a service fee of $150 per hour + GST based on a reasonable amount of hours required to complete the advice provided. This will apply, should you complete an insurance application and cancel during the application process or within 2 years of the policy issue date due to any reason that is no fault of For Life Investments Ltd or the relevant insurance company.

For some situations we can create significant savings on ACC levies to help fund a comprehensive Income Protection policy.  Should we complete an application with ACC on your behalf, we will require a one-off administration fee of $250.00 + GST.

Conflicts of Interest and Incentives

For Life, Health and General Insurance, For Life Investments Limited and our financial adviser receive commissions from the insurance companies on whose policies we give advice. If you decide to take out insurance, the insurer will pay a commission to For Life Investments Limited and our financial adviser. The amount of the commission is based on a percentage of the premium.

To ensure that our financial advisers prioritise our clients’ interests above their own, we follow an advice process that ensures our recommendations are made based on each client’s goals and circumstances. Our financial adviser undergoes annual training about how to manage conflicts of interest. We undertake a compliance audit, and a review of our compliance programme is undertaken annually by a reputable compliance adviser.
