“I’m pleased to announce from 30 April we’re increasing our pendulum commission offering for new business to give you increased flexibility around how you’re paid and to support you to grow value in your business,” says Hand.

The changes will provide an increased up-front component when advisers choose either the 15%, 20% or 30% renewal option.

“This higher pendulum offering is further enhanced by our paying of renewal commission from month two,” says Hand. “We’ve also increased our disability income upfront rate and pendulum options.”

Hand says the changes reflects the ever-increasing importance of advisers to the firm.
