General Advice

The nature and scope of the advice given by Kalkine and provided on the Kalkine website (https://kalkine.co.nz/), in our reports and other publications, and through our customer service support center, is limited to general financial advice only. This means that Kalkine’s advice does not take into account Your individual investment objectives, financial situation or needs. You should consider the appropriateness of any advice provided by taking into account your own objectives, financial situation and needs and seek independent financial advice from a financial advice provider on your personal position before making any financial decisions.

Trading in financial products involves the risk of loss (for example, due to market movements). It is your responsibility to understand the risks of investing and seek financial advice on your personal circumstances from a financial advice provider as necessary before acting on any advice. Not all investments are appropriate for all people.

Fees, expenses, or other amounts payable

Service Fee: We only charge You an annual subscription fee when You subscribe to one of our research services. At the end of the year, you have the option to renew and pay the then applicable subscription fee (including the option to change the service Kalkine provides to you and pay the applicable fee for that service).  You could also let your subscription lapse, in which case no further subscription fees will be payable. Our subscription fees range from NZ$199 to NZ$14,999 incl. GST per annum, depending on the service You select and are payable annually in advance. Kalkine’s multi-year subscriptions may be sold at a discounted price. Monthly subscriptions may be offered in certain cases (in Kalkine’s absolute discretion), in which case the annual subscription fee will be adjusted on a pro rata basis, and any payment must be made in advance before the month in question. The subscription fee may change from time to time as a result of ongoing promotional offers, and you will be advised of these changes if they apply to You and your subscription. If You have signed up to one of Kalkine’s free trial subscription products, there is no payment required during the trial period. All fees and expenses will be disclosed to You before You receive any financial advice from us.

In the future, Kalkine may offer premium subscription packages which will involve additional fees for the additional benefits or additional reports.  The relevant fees will be disclosed to You before you receive any additional financial advice from us, and You may have the option to purchase such premium subscription packages. 

From time to time, subscriptions may be offered for sale at a discounted price and/or with additional benefits as part of special promotions.

Remuneration of Kalkine employees:

All employees and directors of Kalkine receive a salary and may also be eligible to receive performance-based bonuses (which are discretionary) if they meet a pre-set agreed performance indicator, with an overriding discretion as to the amount of the bonus based on quality of audit calls, conduct and complaints.

Apart from the subscription fees referred to above, neither Kalkine nor its employees receive any other remuneration, commission or any other form of benefits in respect of, or that is attributable to, its provision of the financial advice services or for referring another person to Kalkine.

Commissions and other incentives

Kalkine conducts independent research in relation to equity securities and performs technical analysis on commodities and does not receive any form of commission or incentives from financial product issuers of those equity securities and commodities for its recommendations nor for providing financial advice services. 

Conflict of interest

Neither Kalkine nor its affiliates have any associations or relationships with issuers of financial products which might reasonably be expected to be capable of influencing Kalkine in providing the Services.

Kalkine’s related group entity, Kalkine Media New Zealand Limited (company number 8107196) (“Kalkine Media”) conducts an investor relations and media business that is separate from Kalkine’s businesses of providing the financial advice services. Kalkine Media may from time to time have relationships with financial product issuers in relation to marketing, publicity and other matters which form part of Kalkine Media’s business.

Kalkine avoids potential conflicts of interest where possible by not undertaking or publishing research reports on product issuers which are Kalkine Media’s clients. Where it is not possible to avoid a conflict of interest and where such a report is published, Kalkine discloses specific conflicts of interest to its clients prior to providing the financial advice service to enable the client to make an informed decision as to whether to accept the provision of the relevant service.

Kalkine has implemented conflict management processes to ensure that any relationships between Kalkine Media and product issuers as part of Kalkine Media’s separate business could not reasonably be expected to be capable of influencing Kalkine’s provision of the financial advice services. The arrangements that Kalkine Group has established for managing conflicts of interest include: 

Our duties and obligations when providing general financial advice

Kalkine is bound by the duties under the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 to:

Reliability History

The FMA issued a Direction Order to Kalkine New Zealand Limited on 10 August 2022 to stop making outgoing sales calls to people in New Zealand.  The FMA considered Kalkine had materially breached various fair dealing provisions in Part 2 of the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013. The FMA also considered Kalkine’s marketing conduct fell short of the requirements of Code Standard 2 of the Code of Professional Conduct for Financial Advice Services, which requires all persons who provide regulated financial advice to act with integrity. The direction stipulates that Kalkine must not make outgoing sales calls to persons in New Zealand until the FMA is satisfied that Kalkine’s compliance processes are sufficient for outgoing sales calls to resume.

Later, on 21 December 2022 FMA issued a letter stating that Kalkine may resume making outgoing sales calls under clause 3 of the Direction Order (given pursuant to section 414(2)(c) of the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 (the FMC Act)) dated 10 August 2022.
