How we are paid
In place of an upfront fee, Haven and/or directly related companies are paid a commission by the providers for arranging the lending on your behalf.

How we manage conflicts of interest and put your interest first
All of the services Haven offers are provided free of charge to our clients. This is because we are paid by the lending providers when one of their products is taken up on the back of our recommendation.

Although we are paid by the providers, we always put your interests first:

  • We let you know any limitations of the service we offer
  • We explain how and why the recommended lender meets your individual needs over other providers we work with
  • We identify and disclose the maximum level of commission we may get on the back of our recommendation
  • If our recommendation involves replacing any existing lending, we will explain the advantages that provides such as overall cost savings
  • We provide a written summary that explains the process we undertook to arrive at your final lending solution
  • Haven completes internal and external reviews of our advice process to ensure we follow a thorough review process that puts client interest first

  • give priority to your interests by taking all reasonable steps to ensure that the advice given to you is not materially influenced by our own interests or the interests of any other person connected with the giving of advice; and
  • exercise care, diligence, and skill that a prudent person engaged in the occupation of giving related financial advice would in the same circumstances; and
  • meet the standards of ethical behaviour, conduct, and client care set out in the Code of Conduct, to treat you as we should and to provide you with suitable advice
