Conflicts of Interest and Incentives
Bay Financial Partners Limited receives payments from the providers of many investment and insurance products. We may receive an upfront payment and/or a trail payment depending upon the product and the provider. These are usually a percentage of the amount of business our clients have placed with them through us. A percentage of these payments are then paid to our Advisers. To minimise any conflict of interest that may be of detriment to you we use a range of providers and will not place your money with one provider just because they are paying us more. We do not enforce on our Advisers any quotas or minimums with any Provider. The Practise Manager monitors all business placed to look out for irregularities.
Our Advisers may receive gifts and other gratuities such as dinners or drinks from various parties including the providers of Investment and Insurance Products. From time to time we are invited to attend meetings, functions or seminars purporting to be educational but sometimes more entertainment than education. These may include subsidised travel or accommodation. We sometimes take advantage of these opportunities but do not let them influence Bay Financial Partners Limited decisions.
We are required by law to put your interests first.
