Our Charges

We, Shankill FS Limited act as 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 Brokers, 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 Broker which it has agreed with its product producers.

What is commission?

For the purpose of this document, commission is the payment earned by the Broker 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.

There are different types of commission models:

Single commission model: where payment is made to the Broker shortly after the sale is completed and is based on a percentage of the premium paid/amount invested/amount borrowed.
Recurring commission model: For Pensions, Savings & Investments recurring commission refers to further payments at intervals that are paid throughout the life span of the product & may be based on a percentage of the value of the fund or the annual premium.

For Protection products recurring commissions refers to further payments at intervals that are paid throughout the life span of the product & are based of the annual premium.

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 Brokers in order to assist with set up costs or business development.

General insurance products

General insurance products, such as motor, home, travel, health, retail or liability insurance, are typically subject to a single or standard commission model, based on the amount of premium charged for the insurance product.

Profit Share arrangements

In some cases, the Broker may be a party to a profit-share arrangement with a product provider and will earn additional commission. Any business arranged with these product providers on a client's behalf will be placed with the product provider because that product provider is at the time of placement, the most suitable to meet the client's requirements, taking all the client's relevant information, demands and needs into account.

Life Assurance/Investments/Pension products

For Life Assurance products commission is divided into initial commission and Recurring Commission (related to premium)

Recurring Commission is the ongoing remuneration facilitated on a financial advice product to allow for the ongoing service, administration & review processes that are linked to financial advice for Protection, Pensions, Investments & Savings products. Recurring commission can also be described as trail or fund based renewal commission on Pensions/Investments/Savings, or renewal commission on Protection. 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 S.I. 375 of European Communities (Markets in Financial Instruments) Regulations 2017 (the MiFID Regulations), offer both standard commission and commission models involving initial and recurring commission. Increments may be based on a percentage of the investment management fees, or on the value of the fund.

Credit Products/Mortgages

Commission may be earned by Brokers for arranging credit for consumers, such as mortgages. The single, or standard, commission model is the most common commission model applied to the sale of mortgage products by mortgage credit Brokers (Mortgage Broker).

Clawback

Clawback is an obligation on the Broker 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 Broker 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
