Central Financial Planning Limited (FSP745331) holds a license issued by the Financial Markets authority to provide financial advice.

What we do

We provide financial advice and planning solutions to our clients to help them make confident and informed choices  about how best to achieve their financial objectives and can advise on a wide range of managed funds, direct shares, bonds, term deposits and cash.

We also provide advice on a wide range of KiwiSaver solutions.

Fees and Charges

  • We do not charge for initial meetings. This is an opportunity to see if there is a mutual benefit in working together.

  • We charge a fee (subject to GST) for the preparation of your personalised financial plan. This fee will be discussed and agreed with you once the scope of the advice you require is known. This fee is payable within 30 days of presenting of your personal financial plan.

  • We charge a percentage fee for ongoing financial planning advice and management based on the funds we manage for you. This fee is charged monthly in arrears to your investment portfolio. 

  • We will discuss and agree with you on the fee for any advice prior to commencing any work.



Conflicts of Interest and Incentives

Central Financial Planning Limited follows an evidence-based advice process that ensures our recommendations will help you make confident and informed decisions about your circumstances and future ambitions. We prioritise our client’s interests above our own. All our financial advisers undergo annual training about how to manage conflicts of interest. We have no contractualy obligation  to use any one solution over any another. Our clients pay an advice fee for our financial planning services and do not accept brokerage or commisions for placing business with any provider.


KiwiSaver fees of up to 0.5% of the funds under management invested in KiwiSaver are paid to us by the KiwiSaver providers and are included as part of the fund manager fee charged by these organisations.


We have a System and Service Level Agreement in place with Consilium NZ Limited (Consilium).  Consilium is a private company incorporated in 2012 and provides access to institutional pricing, investment advisory research, portfolio and client management systems to independent financial advisers. Central Financial Planning Limited pays Consilium a monthly fee for all systems and services provided under this Agreement.
