Licensing services

Whether you have one or many advisers, Strategi can help you achieve your licensing goals

Disclosure review

The new disclosure regulations provide significant flexibility in how to provide clients with disclosure information. 

We can review your website and advice process, to ensure you are providing clients with the appropriate four stages of disclosure at the right time.

FAP operations manual review

The business operations manual is a key document that sets out how a FAP intends to meet FAP licence obligations.  There is never a ‘one size fits all’ situation when it comes to licensing.

Larger FAPs will want detailed standalone policy documents which include processes, controls, and checklists. Smaller FAPs and one adviser operations usually combine all the policies, processes, and controls into one comprehensive manual that becomes its day-to-day operating bible, while also being the key supporting document for the FAP licence application. Strategi can review your operations manual to ensure it includes all the essential information you need for your full FAP licence.

Advice process and document reviews

We can review your advice documents to ensure you are meeting the FAP licence and good conduct obligations. 

The right advice process and documents can transform your business when integrated correctly, and with the right technology. Strategi Compliance has been developing advice processes and documents for over 20 years with its documents currently used by thousands of New Zealand advisers.

We have everything from our purely paper-based ‘Gen 1’ documents, right up to our new ‘Gen 3’ digital suite of advice documents - which are shorter, quicker to produce and, far easier for clients to understand.  We can build bespoke documents.

We also offer advice process workshops where we work through what is possible and what you want to achieve. Or you can tell us what your specific needs are and we can build from there.

Conduct reviews

Good conduct is now a major consideration for all FAPs, and Strategi Group has developed a number of solutions to help. We offer:

  • conduct training modules within Radar (our online education platform). This enables you to upskill staff each year;
  • bespoke or template conduct policies; 
  • detailed conduct reviews, culminating in a conduct assessment report; and 
  • a good conduct assessment tool – enabling internal self-assessment of how well the business is demonstrating good conduct.

Combined reviews

If you have additional licence obligations, e.g. DIMS, we can do a combined review of your licence obligations.  By combining the reviews, there is less interruption to your business, making it more time and cost-effective. 

We can also complete the AML/CFT audit at the same time.

FAP licence remediation work

Businesses evolve and sometimes FAP licences need to be amended or improved due to FMA feedback, findings from compliance reviews and audits, regulatory changes, new regulator guidance notes, or material changes that the business wants to make to reflect a new business initiative. 

Remediation work often requires expert assistance and the team at Strategi Compliance has the experience for this. We can project manage the complete workstream or just do the technical parts you need help with.
