The Financial Advice Code Working Group is designing a new code of conduct that will apply to financial advisers in New Zealand.
It will set standards of ethical behaviour, client care and competence for a wide range people who give financial advice – from quick recommendations through to detailed investment planning.
If you are receiving advice on mortgages, insurance, term deposits, KiwiSaver, and other investments, or computer-generated financial advice (sometimes called “robo-advice”), the new code of conduct affects you.
The Code Working Group wants to hear from you - consumers of financial advice. You can fill in their short online survey, which is open until 15 May 2018.
