ASSET - NZ's boutique renaissance

New Zealand's independent investment houses have been given a boost with the PIE regime and KiwiSaver lifting their long-term prospects. This month we discover there are many boutique managers who fancy their chances in the new environment.

Monday, April 14th 2008, 3:58PM
There are several features in ASSET this month, including the ability for advisers to earn CPD credits. To do this all you have to do is read several selected articles and then answer a set of questions online at assetmagazine.co.nz

Other features this month include:

Economics: World growth outlook poor
London-based economist Andrew Hunt provides his views on the state of the world markets.

Insurance: And freedom for all
Prior to Christmas, Liberty Adviser Network unwrapped its 'no strings' dealer group, but freedom might be the greatest gift of all for many independent advisers.

Profile: Introducing Maurizio Piglia
It's a long way from Milan to Auckland but Piglia has packed his bags, put in the air miles and his feet under the desk at Savings & Loans Superannuation and Investments. We hear of his plans to bring some Euro hedge fund glamour to the NZ market.

Practice Management
ASSET has a strong practice management section with articles designed to help advisers grow their businesses.

This month we have:
The Learning Curve: Five ways to get on top of 'Clause 26'
The Financial Adviser Bill contains stringent new benchmark behaviour that will transform industry practices. Colin James, Adviserlink business services manager, gives tips on how to prepare.

Columns
ASSET brings you some great columnists each month. PAA chief executive always has interesting ideas for advisers; economist Donal Curtin puts the mundane economic matters into words everyone understands; AMP's Anthony Edmonds delves into the tax files, and Russell Hutchinson provides an insight into issues impacting on advisers' businesses.

  • Professional Advisers' Association: Talking about my association
  • Hutchinson: Financial services in a jam? Try honey
  • Economy: Gloom with a view
  • Tax files: No more leaks

Our book review this month is
