About Enva Financial Advisers Ltd (Enva)

The conditions of our licence allow us to provide the following financial advice services:

  • Personal Life Risk & Medical Insurance
  • KiwiSaver
Personal Life Risk & Medical Insurance

Enva Financial Limited provides personalised advice that takes into account your individual circumstances to determine the personal risk products that best meet your personal goals and needs.

We follow a documented advice process that looks at your personal situation to determine what’s important to you, what products you need and how much cover you should have in place. We then recommend the provider that offers the cover most suited to your stated preferences.

Providers we work with

Enva Financial Limited have chosen to work with the following personal risk insurers:

  • AIA
  • Chubb LIfe
  • Fidelity Life
  • NIB
  • Partners Life

This means that Enva Financial Limited will only consider the providers listed above when recommending a product to meet your personal risk insurance needs.

How we are paid

Enva Financial Limited does not charge any upfront fees for our risk advice services.

To ensure advice remains accessible, Enva and/or directly related companies are paid a commission by the provider of any product you put in place on the back of our recommendation.

Our financial advisers are paid via commission or by way of a fixed salary.  Our salaried advisers may also receive a discretionary bonus based on their contribution to the business.  This is based on their overall performance, including achieving client service levels, compliance obligations, new business and meeting business objectives.


Due to their focus on long-term sustainability and environmentally friendly investment, we have chosen to work exclusively with Aurora Capital when helping our clients with KiwiSaver.

We offer generalised KiwiSaver advice and do not offer investment planning or retirement planning services. This means that when we make a recommendation, it is limited to the best Fund choice for you, within the Aurora KiwiSaver Scheme list of investment portfolios.

We will discuss the level of financial risk you are comfortable with and recommend a fund type that best matches your attitude toward risk and the length of time until you plan on accessing your funds (from conservative through to aggressive).

If you would like personalised advice about your KiwiSaver, we can refer you to an investment specialist who can help.

How we are paid

Enva Financial will receive fees or commissions from Aurora KiwiSaver, based on the sum invested.

More details on the commission or fees that Enva Financial Limited will receive will be provided at the time of our advice.

General Insurance (Home, contents & car)

To ensure that our clients receive the highest level of advice and service, we have a team of Fire and General Insurance Specialists, Blanket Advice Limited that we refer all our clients to.

If you take out a policy with Blanket on the back of my referral, our advisers may receive a small referral commission depending on which insurance products you take out cover with, after taxes

Enva Financial Limited refers our clients to Enva Mortgages Limited for home lending advice. For further details please refer to the Enva Mortgages Limited Disclosure.

  • We identify and disclose the maximum level of commission we may get on the back of our recommendation
  • If our recommendation involves replacing cover, we will provide a comparison of covers and explain what the recommended provider offers that your existing cover does not.  We will also let you know if there is anything your existing provider covers that the recommended provider will not.
  • All our recommendations are provided in writing with an explanation as to how they are based on your individual needs
  • Enva Financial Limited completes internal and external reviews of our advice process to ensure we follow a thorough review process that puts client interest first.
