QFE Disclosure Statement

It is important that you read this information: It is general information which will help you to compare financial advisers and choose the one that best suits your needs. Your insurance is underwritten by State, a business division of IAG New Zealand Limited (“IAG”). IAG is a Qualifying Financial Entity (“QFE”) under the provisions of the Financial Advisers Act 2008. You can check this information on the Financial Service Providers Register at www.fspr.govt.nz.

As a QFE, IAG is licensed to take responsibility for its advisers and to ensure that they exercise due care, diligence and skill when providing financial advice to you.

IAG’s QFE advisers can provide personalised advice about general insurance and warranty products.
