Broadbent Risk provides advice services to our clients about their life insurance, trauma, income and mortgage protection, total & permanent disability and health insurance.
Our financial advisers provide insurance advice only.
We only provide insurance advice about products from certain providers:
For new life insurance policies we work with 4 companies: AIA, Asteron, Fidelity and Partners Life.
In providing you with financial advice, we will only consider existing term life, trauma, income & mortgage protection and health insurance policies (if any). We utilise independent Quality Product Research to assist in our recommendations when dealing with existing covers and possible replacement.
Broadbent employ or contract three Financial Advisers under our licence;
Michael Broadbent (FSP117927) – Michael is an adviser, director and shareholder of Broadbent Risk
Paul Bates (FSP659751) – Paul is an adviser and our General Manager
Jonathan Lester – (FSP760831) – Jono is a part-time contract adviser
Our advisers are remunerated either via salary, bonuses or a percentage of insurer payments depending on their own contract. They will disclose remuneration method and payments we receive from product providers for the advice service they provide you in their personal disclosures.
Broadbent Risk does not charge fees, expenses or any other amount for the financial advice services provided to its clients. We do not charge a fee for clients to implement an insurance plan.
For life insurance and health insurance, Broadbent Risk receives commissions from the insurance companies on whose policies we give advice. If you decide to take our insurance, the insurer will pay Broadbent Risk.
We receive payments from the relevant insurance company if you take out insurance following our advisers advice. The payments are between 0% and 230% of the first year’s premiums of your policy – the amount depends on which insurance company and which insurance policy you choose. We also receive a payment of between 5% and 20% of the premium for each year the policy remains in force.
To ensure that we prioritise your interests above our own, we follow an advice process that ensures our recommendations are made on the basis of your individual insurance needs and circumstances. Advisers complete annual training about how to manage conflicts of interest.
We undertake a Financial Advice Provider compliance audit, and a review of our compliance programme annually to ensure we are meeting our duties.
