Disclosure Statement

Please refer to www.insurancepartners.co.nz/di... for the primary disclosure statement.

Identifying Information
I am a Financial Adviser and I am giving advice on behalf of Insurance Partners Group Ltd (IPG, we, our, us).

My details are as follows:


Paul Johnston

FSP Number:



022 170 8258




100 Spring Street, Tauranga, 3110

Nature and Scope of the Advice
I will only provide you with financial advice about General Insurance from a wide range of New Zealand based and overseas providers.

When providing you with financial advice I will consider:
(a) insurance products that you currently have;
(b) insurance products that you don’t have;
(c) your budget and/or financial position;
(d) your risk appetite; and
(e) risk management techniques.

If I recommend changing any insurance products you currently have, I will notify you of the
important differences and benefits between them.

Reliability History
Neither Folio, IPG nor I have been subject to a reliability event. A reliability event is
something that might materially influence you in deciding whether to seek advice from me or
from Insurance Partners Group Limited. As an example, it would include legal proceedings against me, or if I had been discharged from bankruptcy in the last four years.

Fees and Expenses
Should you proceed with my financial advice and I arrange insurance for you, then a fee for
implementing my financial advice may be charged.

While I am unable to provide you with an estimate of the fee at this time, I will confirm this with
you in my recommendation.

The fee will be shown separately on (but incorporated into) the final invoice to be payable by
you by the due date noted on the invoice, or paid via a Premium Funding company’s monthly
instalments if arranged.

Sometimes other fees are charged that do not relate to my financial advice such as credit card
fees. If so, I will confirm this with you in my recommendation.

A breakdown of the fees will be provided in the final Disclosure information that accompanies
your invoice.

Conflicts of Interest and Incentives
When we arrange insurance for you, the provider(s) may pay us a commission. The amount
of the commission varies between providers and products and is based on a percentage of
the Company Premium and Natural Disaster premium (if applicable).

Folio.Insure retain a percentage of this commission for the services they provide to Insurance Partners Group

Typically the commissions range between 10-30% of the company premium for most
insurance products, and commissions between 5% - 10% of the Natural Disaster premium.

I will disclose the exact amounts when I know what insurance products and providers I am
