Disclosure Statement

Our licence information March 2023

JMI Wealth Limited (‘JMI’, ‘we’, ‘us’) holds a Financial Advice Provider (‘FAP’) licence issued by the Financial Markets Authority (‘FMA’) in accordance with the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 (‘FMCA’) to provide financial advice services in New Zealand. JMI gives this FAP disclosure in accordance with the FMCA and its regulations. As a FAP licence holder, we provide financial advice services through our employees who are Financial Advisers (‘Advisers’).

Our Financial Service Provider Registration numbers FSP93061. This FAP Disclosure Statement is important because it provides you with information about the services that our Advisers provide. It should help you decide whether to engage a JMI Adviser and whether to follow their financial advice.

What types of products do we provide Financial Advice for?

Our Advisers provide advice on a wide range of investment products including, direct New Zealand and Australian equities, New Zealand bonds, foreign exchange, Managed Investment Schemes (including Clarity and Devon Funds) and KiwiSaver (including Select Wealth KiwiSaver Scheme).

What fees will you pay?

We charge a fee for the financial advice and monitoring service that we provide. This fee will be based on your funds under advice and is typically calculated on a percentage basis. This could be up to 1.25% p.a. JMI may also charge an implementation fee for the advice provided. In all cases, fees charged for financial advice and implementation will be agreed with you beforehand and set out in your Investment Proposal.

Once fees are agreed, you have the option to be invoiced directly for fees or have them deducted from your custodial account. If you choose to be invoiced directly, payment is due by 20th of the following month.

There may be other charges when we invest your money, for example: brokerage and foreign currency fees. We will discuss and agree these with you at the time and capture them in your Terms of Engagement.

Our conflicts of interest, commissions and other incentives

JMI, Clarity Funds Management Limited (Clarity), TAHITO Limited(TAHITO), Select Wealth Management Limited (Select) and Devon Funds Management Limited (Devon) are wholly owned subsidiaries of the Investment Services Group Limited (ISG).

Clarity is the licenced manager of the Clarity Funds Scheme. Devon is the licenced manager of the Devon Investment Funds. Select is the licenced manager of the Select Discretionary Investment Management Service (DIMS) and distributor of the Select KiwiSaver Scheme. JMI are the investment manager for the Select DIMS portfolios and the Select KiwiSaver Scheme. JMI Advisers are distributors and promoters of ISG products.

If our Advisers recommend you invest in a financial product or service managed by an ISG related party provider, any fees generated will be a benefit to the licenced manager and ultimately ISG. All fund and portfolio fees are specified in the relevant Product or Service Disclosure Statements and paid to the respective licenced managers.

Our Advisers are employees paid a base salary with potential for a bonus. Individual product recommendations to clients do not affect their salary, but may result in an increase to funds under advice and advice fee revenue. To be eligible for a bonus all Advisers must be able to show how they have complied with their duties under FMCA.

Our Advisers may from time to time recommend an investment purchase. For example, a new product issue. New product issues may result in JMI receiving a commission from the product provider. We will present this to you in writing to help you make your decision.

We have frameworks in place to manage these conflicts of interest and any others that may arise which include:

  • Our Advisers follow an advice process that ensures each client's interests are prioritised, their objectives and needs are identified, and recommendations of financial products are made based on those objectives and needs.
  • We disclose and explain any perceived or potential conflicts of interest to each of our clients before providing financial advice to that client.
  • We have a conflicts of interest policy, maintain a conflicts of interest register and provide staff with regular updates and training.
