Why IDS Limited
Financial advisers make a significant difference to the financial well-being of New Zealanders. It’s a role that is highly rewarding but also brings with it considerable responsibility and regulatory requirements. That is why we set up Independent Development Solutions Ltd (IDS).
IDS helps financial advisers and adviser groups to effectively manage their compliance responsibilities, and importantly, to turn compliance into a tool for best practice and business growth.
Since 2010, IDS has supported over 4,000 advisers with a comprehensive range of compliance services. We offer annual programmes or one-off compliance services for individuals and groups – tailored to your business needs. In 2016, we launched two new services: (1) complaints resolution support – including best practice processes, initial complaints guidance, representational negotiation and independent mediation; and (2) learning and development services – including workshops, adviser learning resources and Continued Professional Development planning and facilitation.
New Zealanders deserve quality financial advice. Financial advisers play a crucial role in providing quality advice. IDS is proud to support the development of the advice industry and the many positive outcomes it delivers.
