How I am paid

Personal Life Risk & Medical Insurance
Finance Bloom provides personalised advice that takes into account your individual circumstances to determine the personal risk products that best meet your personal goals and needs.
I follow a documented advice process that uses your personal situation to work out what’s important to you, what products you need and how much cover you should have in place.
I then recommend the provider that offers the cover most suited to your stated preferences.

How I am paid
Finance Bloom does not charge any upfront fees for my risk advice services. To ensure advice remains accessible, I am paid a commission by the provider of any product you put in place on the back of my recommendation.
There are two exceptions to this general position which are explained below.
We may charge you a one-off fee in the following situations:
No commission: If you request that we provide services in relation to a product or service and we do not receive a commission. Any such fee would be agreed and authorised by you in writing before we complete the services, and would be based on an estimate of the time spent providing the advice. This may arise in the rare event that you request that we provide Services in relation to either a product that is offered by a provider that we do not hold an accreditation with, or a product that is outside our usual arrangements with our product providers.
Repayment of commission: If a product or service provider requires that we repay commission within 24 months of settlement of your issuance of your risk insurance policy. Any such fee would be no more than $2,000.00 (plus GST) and would be calculated based on a rate of $280 (plus GST) per hour of the financial adviser’s time spent providing services to you in connection with the applicable insurance. The fee charged will not exceed the amount of commission clawed back from the provider. Should we need to charge you a fee, you will be invoiced and will be given 30 days to make payment.
Finance Bloom works with different referral partners and we get paid commission split from them.
How I am paid
