H W W Limited (FSP699611, trading as Delray Group) holds a transitional licence issued by the Financial Markets Authority to provide financial advice.  Timothy Scott Lethlean (FSP24921) is authorised by that licence to provide that advice on behalf of Delray Group. 

 

Nature and Scope of that Advice

Timothy Lethlean provides advice to our clients about their life insurance and health insurance.

We only provide financial advice about products from certain providers:

 

  • For Life, Trauma, Total & Permanent Disability, Income/Mortgage Protection (Key Person) insurance we work with five companies – AIA, Asteron Life, Cigna, Fidelity Life, Partners Life.

 

  • For medical insurance we work with four providers – AIA, Nib, Partners Life and Southern Cross Health Society

 

Fees or Expenses

Delray Group may charge a fee for the financial advice provided to a client where a client cancels a life or health insurance policy within two years of inception.  Whether a fee will be charged and the manner in which it will be charged will be advised when the advice is provided to the client.  This fee will be payable by the client by the 20th of the month after the policy is cancelled.

 

Conflicts of Interest and Incentives

To ensure that we prioritise the client’s interest above our own, we follow an advice process that ensures our recommendations are made on the basis of the client’s goals and circumstances.  Our financial adviser undergoes annual training about how to manage conflicts of interest.  We maintain registers of conflicts of interests, and the gifts and incentives we receive.  Delray Group monitors these registers and provides additional training where necessary.  Delray Group also undertakes a review of its compliance programme annually but does go through a compliance audit by a reputable compliance adviser every two years.
