An NZX Firm is one that is authorised by the New Zealand Stock Exchange to buy and sell investments on behalf of their clients. This authorisation comes with rules that we must follow as to how Somerset Smith Partners and its advisers must act in terms of its dealings with its clients and also the stringent financial requirements that are imposed on the Firm regarding both client assets and the Firm’s own financial position. All of which affords clients greater certainty and protection in their dealings with an NZX Firm like Somerset Smith Partners.
