Fees, Expenses, or Other Amounts Payable

YG Financial Services Ltd receives commissions based on the business you place with the providers we work with. We typically do not charge fees or expenses; however, if we do, further details are listed below.

For Health and Risk insurance advice, YG Financial Services Ltd may charge a fee, at their discretion, for the financial advice provided to you. This fee will be calculated on the following basis: a base advice fee of between $500 - $2000 (including GST), then $200 (inc GST) per hour after the first 10 hours. This fee will be discussed further with you when determining the Scope of the advice. The fee will be payable after the Statement of Advice has been provided to you by the 20th of the month.

For Health and Risk insurances, YG Financial Services Ltd may charge a fee for the financial advice provided to you when you cancel a health or life insurance policy within two years of inception. Whether a fee will be charged and the manner in which it will be charged will be advised. This fee will be payable by you by the 20th of the month after the policy is cancelled. This fee is also known as a clawback charge. *

For KiwiSaver advice, a fee of $150 is applied if you choose to invest with Milford Investment. For NZ Funds and Generate products, there are no initial advice fee.

All KiwiSaver providers pay a commission to YG Financial Services Ltd, and the financial adviser based on the total amount of fund held in the portfolio.

If fees are charged, fees for advice and implementation are based on the complexity and time required, and they will be clearly outlined in your invoice. Adjustments to your insurance during the policy period may also incur a fee, which will be indicated on your invoice.

YG Financial Services Ltd reserves the right to waive this fee at their discretion if the client continues to use their services to organise replacement finance.

* A clawback is where a payment received from product providers for business placed, is reversed due to the policy being cancelled within a two-year period.

Conflicts of Interest and Incentives

We want to be transparent regarding potential conflict of interests.

  • Yang Gu and Channel Lee, directors at YG Financial Services Ltd, also serve as directors at YG General Ltd. While we are dedicated to managing this conflict effectively, we believe it's important to inform you so you can make informed decisions. We assure you that we have internal processes to mitigate any conflicts. If you have questions, please reach out.
  • When arranging insurance, providers pay YG Financial Services Ltd and the financial adviser a commission based on the amount of the premium. In the event of policy cancellation and commissions clawback, a professional advice fee may be charged to you for the time spent on providing advice.
  • Referral arrangements may involve us paying a percentage of commissions and/or fees to the referring entity. If conflicts of interest arise, we will disclose them and take appropriate action to ensure your interests are prioritised.

Our financial advisers are committed to prioritising your interests above their own, and we maintain a register of conflicts, gifts, and incentives to uphold transparency.
