Poll Result: It’s Almost 50-50 On Merger Benefit


With October’s merger of Kepa and NZFSG settled, and what with SHARE and Newpark Group joining forces recently, industry consolidation in New Zealand continues.

With that in mind, last week we asked if the merging of dealer groups is good for financial advisers.

While our poll is still open, the results based on those who have so far voted show that 50 per cent say ‘no’ – dealer group mergers are not good for advisers; 42 per cent say ‘yes’ they are, and 8 per cent aren’t sure.

Are dealer group mergers good for the adviser community?

  • No (54%)
  • Yes (38%)
  • Not sure (8%)
