Best Practice manual
Strategi has published a new Best Practice manual and templates, this new manual was developed to meet the environment and obligations within the financial service provider industry. We delayed doing so until the new Regulator and regulations were in place and to ensure the contents and associated templates were current and relevant.
Advisers can now purchase this comprehensive manual that covers all aspects of Best Practice and compliance.
Alongside this manual sits over 55 templates including new Statement of Advice templates for investment, KiwiSaver and risk. In addition, there are a multitude of checklists and templates that will simplify how you do business and enable you to meet legislative and regulatory requirements.
Purchasing the Best Practice Manual will entitle you to ongoing amendments and updates as they occur.
Contact us to order your Best Practice manual and templates.
Strategi also offers comprehensive Best Practice and compliance review packages for advisory businesses, see our Best Practice packages.>> Back to top
Operations manual template
For some busy advisers, the construction of a company Operations Manual can be a daunting task.
Strategi has developed a manual template of approximately 100 pages as part of its Best Practice and compliance services to take the guesswork out of what information this document should contain. It includes all the sections you need to consider and is a great starting point so you can customise the contents to fit your business. This operations manual template is a natural complement to your ABS.

A Reference Guide to Key Legislation and Code of Professional Conduct (Edition 2)
Strategi Institute has developed a comprehensive handbook, which not only provides assistance with what needs to be studied for the Standard Set B examination, but also provides an ongoing reference guide to the relevant legislation, regulations and Code relating to operating as a financial adviser. It is designed as a simple to read, easy to navigate handbook that will be an indispensible part of your advisers’ and other front-line staff’s compliance kit for years to come.
Strategi Institute's Standard Set B half-day workshops provide valuable guidance on how the Standard Set B examination will be conducted, what to expect, how to best prepare for it, plus insights into the new regulation and legislation.
This workshop also equips support staff, who perhaps don't need to sit SSB, to understand the new environment the adviser and adviser business must operate in.
Visit our Strategi Institute website to order your Handbook - $36, excluding GST, + P&P (or wholesale, 10 copies or more, $32, excluding GST + P&P) and/or enrol in a half-day workshop.>> Back to top
