Licence status and conditions

Baileys Insurance Ltd holds a financial advice provider licence, issued by the Financial Markets Authority (FMA) to provide financial advice.  
Our Financial Markets Authority Reference Number is: CAS-75396-Y7R8M1 / NTF220538567.

Nature and scope of financial advice service

This website is an on line facility to purchase pleasure craft insurance for your recreational vessel. This does not provide quotations or advice on any other insurance product. The insurance policy here is underwritten by the marine division of Vero Insurance NZ Ltd. This facility does not provide any comparisons or quotations on any pleasure craft policies from other Insurers. The policy available here has been arranged based on our extensive experience in the marine insurance market. Key features and benefits unique to Baileys Insurance are highlighted in the full quotation provided. Once the policy is purchased, we provide expert assistance with any claims you may need to make. This on line system is set up for boat owners to obtain boat insurance. All of the policy information is available before you make your decision to purchase. If you have any questions or would like to discuss any aspect of the policy or coverage please call us on 0800 89 85 85. The on line facility is only used for new business. Your policy will be reviewed each year and a renewal offer will be sent to you prior to the policy expiring. You are free to turn down this offer. The on line facility can be cancelled at any time without any notice being given.

Fees, expenses or other amounts payable

We charge a policy fee to help cover administration costs.  The fee for trailer craft is NIL.  The fee for moored vessels is:
Up to $100,000 sum insured: $50.
Over $100,000 sum insured:  $75.
Any fee charged will be clearly shown on your invoice and is part of the total amount due.

Premium funding

Premium funding products enable you to pay the insurance premium over the term of your policy by instalments rather than as one amount. Premium funders charge interest and they take a power of attorney over your insurance policy, which means they have the ability to cancel your insurance policy if you fail to pay an instalment.  We own Baileys Premium Funding Ltd, a premium funding company.  Under certain circumstances this company may allow you to fund your premium allowing you to spread the payments over the term of your policy.  Additional charges apply, which will be clearly advised to you if we agree to you using this facility.

Commissions and incentives

Our remuneration is paid by Vero Insurance Ltd, by way of commission. The commission rate is 20% of the Company Premium shown on your invoice. We are also a member of Steadfast NZ Limited (Steadfast). Steadfast supplies technology platforms, management, marketing, professional, technical, and buying benefits and services to support us in providing our financial advice. Steadfast has arrangements with insurance companies under which Steadfast receives a professional services fee of up to 1.5% of the premium paid for each policy arranged by us with those insurers. These payments are used to operate Steadfast. We will receive a proportion of the professional services fee paid to Steadfast, being 35% of that fee. This will be paid to us by Steadfast at the end of each financial year.

We receive no other incentives or inducements.
