Our Remuneration

Our Remuneration

We, Kalm Investments Limited T/A Santiago Investment Advisors act as Broker between you, the consumer, and the product provider with whom we place your business.

The background

Pursuant to provision 4.58A of the Central Bank of Ireland's September 2019 Addendum to the Consumer Protection Code, all Brokers, must make available in their public offices, or on their website if they have one, a summary of the details of all arrangements for any fee, commission, other reward or remuneration provided to the Broker which it has agreed with its product producers.

What is commission?

For the purpose of this document, commission is the payment earned by the Broker for work undertaken on behalf of both the provider and the consumer. The amount of commission is generally directly related to the quantity or value of the products sold.

We are remunerated by commission and other payments from product producers. When assessing products, we will consider the different approach taken by product providers in terms of them integrating sustainability risks into their product offering. This will form part of our analysis for choosing a product provider.

 

Our Brokerage commission options are displayed as a range, showing the maximum amount which can be received. The level of commission depends on individual circumstances, based on the following factors: The factors that may impact a variation in charges include; • Client segmentation • Adviser discretion • Competitive pressures • Investment/pensions/saving size • Schemes size • Term/timeline of a policy or service • Complexity of advice • Preferential terms in the market, available to a Brokerage & client at the time

There are different types of commission models:

Single commission model:where payment is made to the Broker shortly after the sale is completed and is based on a percentage of the premium paid/amount invested/amount borrowed. 
Recurring commission model:For Pensions, Savings & Investments recurring commission refers to further payments at intervals that are paid throughout the life span of the product & may be based on a percentage of the value of the fund or the annual premium.

For Protection products recurring commissions refers to further payments at intervals that are paid throughout the life span of the product & are based on the annual premium.
Indemnity commissionIndemnity commission is the term used to describe a commission payment made before the commission is deemed to be 'earned'. Indemnity commission may be subject to a clawback (see below) if the consumer lapses or cancels the product before the commission is deemed to be earned.

Other forms of indemnity commission are advances of commission for future sales granted to Brokers in order to assist with set up costs or business development.

Profit Share arrangements

In some cases, the Broker may be a party to a profit-share arrangement with a product provider and will earn additional commission. Any business arranged with these product providers on a client's behalf will be placed with the product provider because that product provider is at the time of placement, the most suitable to meet the client's requirements, taking all the client's relevant information, demands and needs into account.

Life Assurance/Investments/Pension products

For Life Assurance products commission is divided into initial commission and Recurring Commission (related to premium)

Recurring Commission is the ongoing remuneration facilitated on a financial advice product to allow for the ongoing service, administration & review processes that are linked to financial advice for Protection, Pensions, Investments & Savings products. Recurring commission can also be described as trail or fund based renewal commission on Pensions/Investments/Savings, or renewal commission on Protection. Where an investment fund is being built up though an insurance-based investment product or a pension product, the increments may be based on a percentage of the value of the fund or the annual premium. For a single premium/lump sum product, the increment is generally based on the value of the fund.

Examples of products include Life Protection, Regular Premium Life Assurance Investments, Single Premium (lump sum) Insurance-based Investments, and Single Premium Pensions.

Investments

Investment firms, which fall within the scope of the S.I. 375 of European Communities (Markets in Financial Instruments) Regulations 2017 (the MiFID Regulations), offer both standard commission and commission models involving initial and recurring commission. Increments may be based on a percentage of the investment management fees, or on the value of the fund.

Clawback

Clawback is an obligation on the Broker to repay unearned commission. Commission can be paid directly after a contract is concluded but is not deemed to be 'earned' until after a specified period of time. If the consumer cancels or withdraws from the financial product within the specified time, the Broker must return commission to the product producer.

Fees

The firm may also be remunerated by fee by the product producer such as policy fee, admin fee, or in the case of investment firms, advisory fees. Include arrangements etc

Please Note

The enclosed commission guidance section gives indicative values across every product provider and every product advised whereby a commission or fee is received within our business. This is the maximum our Brokerage will take and is subject to change, in certain cases our Brokerage may take a different remuneration than the enclosed percentages/amounts. This will be disclosed to each client as per the Central Bank Consumer Protection Code regulations, on a client by client basis.

Other Fees, Administrative Costs/ Non-Monetary Benefits

The firm may also be in receipt of non-monetary benefits such as:

  • Attendance at product provider seminars
  • Assistance with Advertising/Branding

Please note that Santiago Investment Advisors is precluded from accepting free hospitality such as golf trips and tickets to sporting events. 

Further detail on the providers we work with, the products we sell and the maximum commissions available to us are outlined below.

CONEXIM PLATFORM: 

DEDUCTION AND REMITTANCE OF ADVISORY FEES 

Please note that all fees and commissions processed on the Conexim Platform meet the definitions required to be considered ‘independent advice’ as defined under the MiFID Regulations and the Consumer Protection Code 2012 (as amended). 

Accounts on the Conexim Platform are legally and beneficially owned by the client in the case of Personal, Joint and Corporate Accounts, and beneficially owned by the client in the case of Trust based accounts (e.g. where the Trustee is the legal owner). Under Central Bank of Ireland guidance, in the case of single member pension schemes, the firm looks through to the underlying beneficiary in terms of conduct of business rules under MiFID. 

When a client opens an account on the Conexim Platform, the client states on the application form that: “The charges payable to my financial advisor which will be levied and deducted from my account are X%/€X Implementation, X%/€X Annual Charge. I hereby consent to the deduction of these charges from my account(s).” 

From the above, the client agrees to a specified fee payable to their financial advisor (not Conexim), and also agrees for it to be deducted from their accounts and paid to their financial advisor – i.e. Conexim are acting on the client’s behalf in paying the advisor the fee from the client’s assets. The narrative on the client account when deductions are made, separate the Conexim Platform fee from the advisor fee, and they are recorded separately in the books and records of the firm. 

Conexim does not set the level of remuneration payable to a financial advisor – it is agreed between the client and the advisor. Conexim therefore is collecting what is clearly identified as a standalone advisor charge and remitting it to the advisor from the client account, based on a fee level agreed between the advisor and the client when using the Conexim Platform. This advice may be provided on an independent or non-independent advice basis by the advisor, but in no cases do Conexim and the advisor have bundled fee arrangements.   

For the avoidance of doubt, Conexim does not pay any remuneration to advisors for account referrals, persistency lapse rates, volume considerations, soft commissions or other metrics, and as there are no ‘lock in periods’ for investments on the Conexim Platform - there are no exit penalties, clawbacks or other detrimental fees levied on redemption or account closure.
