Licensing information

Neil Earle Henderson (FSP28925), trading as Neil Henderson holds a license issued by the Financial Markets Authority to provide financial advice.

Neil Henderson is a Financial Advice Provider.

Nature and scope of the advice

Neil Henderson provides advice to his clients about their investments, mortgages, life insurance, health insurance and fire & general insurance.

I provide financial advice in relation to KiwiSaver, managed Funds, master trusts, investment and superannuation plans, mortgages, life insurance, health insurance and fire & general insurance.

I only provide financial advice about products from certain providers:

  • For mortgages, I work with the following banks and lenders​

    • Avanti, General Finance, Liberty, NZCU Baywide, Pepper, Prospa, Resimac, Southern Cross Financial and Sovereign

  • ANZ, ASB, BNZ, Co-op, Heartland and Westpac

    • AMP (Assure), ANZ/OneAnswer, Booster, Fisher Funds, Generate, Milford Asset Management, NZ Funds and Select Wealth Management

Fees or expenses

I do not charge fees, expenses or any other amount for any financial advice provided to my clients.

Conflicts of interest and incentives

I receive commissions from the providers on whose products I give financial advice (insurers, banks, lenders, investment managers and KiwiSaver providers). If you decide to take out insurance or a mortgage, or to take our investment or KiwiSaver advice, the provider will pay a commission to me.

The amount of commission is based on the amount of the premium or mortgage, or the investment or KiwiSaver balance.

From time to time, product providers may also reward me for the overall business I provide to them. They may give me tickets to sports events, hampers, or other incentives. To ensure that I prioritise my clients’ interests above my own, I follow an advice process that ensures my recommendations are made on the basis of each client’s goals and circumstances. I undergo annual training about how to manage conflicts of interest. I maintain registers of conflicts of interests, and the gifts and incentives I receive. I undertake a compliance audit, and a review of my compliance programme is undertaken annually by a reputable compliance adviser or company.

Complaints handling and dispute resolution​

Our internal complaints process

The internal complaints process is:

  • I aim to resolve any complaints in a timely manner and will indicate to you the time this complaint will take to resolve.

  • I will communicate with you in the method you prefer – phone, email or written.

If I cannot resolve your complaint in a manner which is acceptable then you can contact my free independent dispute resolution service.

Our external complaints process

If we cannot agree on how to fix the issue or if you decide not to use the internal complaints scheme, you can contact my external disputes resolution scheme – Insurance & Financial Services Ombudsman Scheme. This service will cost you nothing and will help us resolve any disagreements.​
