Fees

Use of the Website and Mobile App to display pensions is completely free of charge. If/ when the time comes that you want to switch your pension or set up a new one, we will run through the annual fees that product providers charge for the fund(s) we’re recommending, which will form part of our analysis for reasons why the product(s) is/are suitable for you and your needs. So how do we make money? Cathedral Financial Consultants Limited t/a My Pension is paid a commission by the product provider. We may also receive other payments depending on the volume of business placed with a provider. For certain life assurance policies and PRSA’s, this commission is outlined in the quotation provided to you and details are included in the policy documentation issued by the provider. In relation to non-life insurance products details of commission receivable are available on request.

Cathedral Financial Consultants Limited t/a My Pension may also opt to charge a fee in certain circumstances. Where this applies we will confirm the fee in writing prior to the completion of any business.

Our Remuneration

 

We, Cathedral Financial Consultants Limited t/a My Pension, act as intermediary (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 intermediaries, 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 intermediary which it has agreed with its product producers.

 

What is commission?

For the purpose of this document, commission is the payment earned by the intermediary 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 intermediary shortly after the sale is completed and is based on a percentage of the premium paid/amount invested/amount borrowed.
Trail/Renewal commission model: Further payments at intervals are paid throughout the life span of the product.
Indemnity commission Indemnity 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 intermediaries in order to assist with set up costs or business development.

 

Life Assurance/Investments/Pension products

For Life Assurance products commission is divided into initial commission and renewal commission (related to premium), fund based or trail relating to accumulated fund.

Trail commission, bullet commission, fund based or renewal commission are all terms used for ongoing payments. 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 European Communities (Markets in Financial Instruments) Regulations 2007 (the MiFID Regulations), offer both standard commission and commission models involving initial and trail 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 intermediary 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 intermediary 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

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

Fees

Use of the Website and Mobile App to display pensions is completely free of charge. If/ when the time comes that you want to switch your pension or set up a new one, we will run through the annual fees that product providers charge for the fund(s) we’re recommending, which will form part of our analysis for reasons why the product(s) is/are suitable for you and your needs. So how do we make money? Cathedral Financial Consultants Limited t/a My Pension is paid a commission by the product provider. We may also receive other payments depending on the volume of business placed with a provider. For certain life assurance policies and PRSA’s, this commission is outlined in the quotation provided to you and details are included in the policy documentation issued by the provider. In relation to non-life insurance products details of commission receivable are available on request.

Cathedral Financial Consultants Limited t/a My Pension may also opt to charge a fee in certain circumstances. Where this applies we will confirm the fee in writing prior to the completion of any business.

Our Remuneration

 

We, Cathedral Financial Consultants Limited t/a My Pension, act as intermediary (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 intermediaries, 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 intermediary which it has agreed with its product producers.

 

What is commission?

For the purpose of this document, commission is the payment earned by the intermediary 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 intermediary shortly after the sale is completed and is based on a percentage of the premium paid/amount invested/amount borrowed.
Trail/Renewal commission model: Further payments at intervals are paid throughout the life span of the product.
Indemnity commission Indemnity 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 intermediaries in order to assist with set up costs or business development.

 

Life Assurance/Investments/Pension products

For Life Assurance products commission is divided into initial commission and renewal commission (related to premium), fund based or trail relating to accumulated fund.

Trail commission, bullet commission, fund based or renewal commission are all terms used for ongoing payments. 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 European Communities (Markets in Financial Instruments) Regulations 2007 (the MiFID Regulations), offer both standard commission and commission models involving initial and trail 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 intermediary 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 intermediary 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

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