You may have read in the press about some financial advisers taking overseas trips as rewards from companies for selling their insurance policies. We are so pleased the Financial Markets Authority are taking a stand to make advisers disclose these trips to their clients. We’ve been in business for 10 years and RIVAL Wealth have never taken overseas trips with a product provider. We have frequently qualified for them but have always chosen to receive a marketing budget and spend this on sponsorship and education in the Wairarapa community. Last year we received $9,000 which meant we got to sponsor cool stuff like; The Artful Man Auction for Rathkeale College, Fernridge Muddy Muster, Wairarapa College 1st XI Girls Hockey Team, JAB Rugby, Masterton Foodbank, Reap House, Kid’s Triathlon, Gladstone Scarecrow festival plus so much more!
