Welcome to the new register

The Financial Service Providers Register was updated in March 2021 to support the Financial Services Legislation Amendment Act 2019. This new Act made significant changes to the way financial advice is regulated and delivered in New Zealand.

An extension to the register

Individuals, who have had their registration for the ‘Financial Adviser’ (RFA) service accepted while our online services were unavailable, are recorded on an extension to the FSPR.

This list was last updated Wednesday 14 July 2021.

Lenders and mobile traders

Lenders providing consumer credit, and mobile traders selling on credit, will soon need to be certified by the Commerce Commission.

FAPs linking to financial advisers

Financial advisers need to be covered by a licensed Financial Advice Provider (FAP) licence. Find out how a FAP engages (links to) a financial adviser on the new FSPR.

Annual confirmation

To remain registered as an FSP, every year you must confirm your FSP's details and services. Find out how to file your confirmation on the new FSPR.

News and notices

New certification requirement for lenders and mobile traders

From 1 October 2021, lenders providing consumer credit, and mobile traders selling on credit, will need to be certified by the Commerce Commission.
