ANZIIF Pathway for New Zealand Compliance for Advisers

ANZIIF are excited to announce the Level 5 equivalent compliance training for New Zealand advisers in General Insurance and General Insurance Broking.

The FMA has been advised that the industry training organisation, The Skills Organisation, has successfully completed an equivalency assessment of ANZIIF’s New Zealand Compliance for Advisers (General Insurance and General Insurance Broking). The Skills Organisation has confirmed that ANZIIF’s Compliance Certificates for New Zealand advisers meet the qualification outcomes of the New Zealand Certificate in Financial Services (Level 5) Version 2 - General Insurance Strand.

ANZIIF's compliance pathway is mapped to the NZQA Level 5 Qualification outcomes of both the Graduate Profile and General Insurance and General Insurance Broking Strands. Undertaking this process has demonstrated that there is clear coverage within the overarching competencies, particularly as they cascade down to the learning elements and performance criteria, along with the performance and knowledge evidence required to be awarded each of the identified competencies.

Based on this assessment from the Skills Organisation, a person seeking to demonstrate capabilities (for the purposes of the new Code of Conduct for Financial Advisers) equivalent to this particular specialist strand, i.e. General insurance strand, would be able to do so by completing ANZIIF’s New Zealand Compliance for Advisers (General Insurance and General Insurance Broking).
