Commissions, Fees & Conflicts

Product providers may pay a commission for any business that is written. This commission is based on a percentage of the annual premium.

This commission is paid to Wealthpoint Limited who has an agreement with the product provider to distribute their financial products.

Wealthpoint Limited on-pays the commission received to Dunlop Insurance whilst retaining a portion of the commission. Wealthpoint may also pay Dunlop Insurance rebates on a periodic basis.

The amount of commission paid and whether there are ongoing commission payments will depend on the specific financial provider and type of financial product.

Dunlop Insurance advisers are paid by Dunlop Insurance and may receive bonuses depending on the amount and value of financial products I distribute.

Wealthpoint advisers may receive subsidised professional development training from financial providers.

Wealthpoint Limited and Dunlop Insurance may receive payments from product suppliers and financial platform providers for the amount of business placed with them.

Wealthpoint may receive funding from suppliers to market and contribute at periodic conferences.

To ensure Wealthpoint advisers prioritise the client's interests above their own, our advisers follow an advice process that ensures our recommendations are made on the basis of the client's goals and circumstances. All our advisers are regulated by the FMA and are subject to a Wealthpoint quality assurance process for compliance purposes.
