The ways AMP distributes products
Our advisers cover a range of topics and specialities, and are available across New Zealand.
Where you’re dealing with advisers not directly employed by AMP, they’re still representatives of AMP and provide the level of service you’d expect from us.
Advisers in the AMP Qualifying Financial Entity (QFE)
AMP Services (NZ) Limited provides financial adviser services through AMP employees or AMP adviser businesses (who have agency agreements with AMP). These advisers are all nominated representatives of the AMP QFE.
AdviceFirst offers financial advice and planning. AdviceFirst advisers work across Auckland, Waikato, Manawatu, Wellington and Canterbury. They are also members of AMP’s Quality Advice Network. AdviceFirst also incorporates the Roost brand.
Spicers Portfolio Management Limited provides financial adviser services to customers through its network of advisers. All Spicers advisers are nominated representatives of the Spicers Portfolio Management Limited QFE.
Other financial advisers
AMP also distributes financial products through financial advisers in addition to those mentioned above. They are not part of the AMP QFE and are not nominated representatives. AMP’s QFE does not take responsibility for any financial adviser services provided by them although they are still regulated by the Financial Markets Authority (FMA).
The financial advice process
Once you’ve got in touch with an adviser, they’ll contact you to discuss your current situation and go through your financial goals. They can then personalise their recommendations, which comes in a document called a Statement of Advice (SOA).
The SOA might suggest new products or strategies for you, or make changes to existing products. It’s completely up to you to choose whether you want to use their advice.
Why you can trust our advisers
You can be confident that you’ll get sound financial advice from our advisers. That’s because the majority of our advisers get specialist professional development, training and business support from our Quality Advice Network (QAN).
What is AMP's Quality Advice NetworkShow more
AMP’s Quality Advice Network (QAN) has been developed with advisers for advisers. This ensures you’re receiving the best quality information from your adviser.
It helps your adviser access comprehensive training, up-to-date product information, and business support so they can give you great service.
