All fees are payable to Danton. Gareth is one of the owners of Danton and shares in the profits that are made.

General advice

We may charge you a fee for any general advice we provide to you. That fee may be either a fixed fee or based on the amount of hours it takes us to prepare and provide you with the general advice. The amount of these fees usually ranges from $1,100 to $3,300 but may exceed this range in complex cases. Details of the fee will be agreed with you beforehand. You may request information about these fees within a reasonable time after receiving this FSG but before you are provided with any general advice.

Personal advice

We will charge you a fee for any personal advice we provide to you. That fee may be either a fixed fee or based on the amount of hours it takes us to prepare and provide you with personal advice. The amount of these fees usually ranges from $3,300 to $9,900 but may exceed this range in complex cases. These fees will be agreed with you beforehand and will be disclosed in a SoA or RoA which will be provided to you.

Ongoing fees

Our ongoing fees depend on the ongoing service that we provide to you. They are typically charged as an agreed fixed price of between $3,300 and $7,700 but may exceed this range in complex cases and are paid monthly.  The amount of ongoing fees will depend on your total assets under management and other factors such as the complexity of your portfolio, the regularity of reviews and any additional services we are providing.

Any ongoing fees will be agreed with you in our service agreement.

Brokerage fees

We do not charge you for brokerage but brokerage fees may be payable to third parties who execute transactions on your behalf.

The services and fees will be set out in the SoA or RoA that we provide to you.

Insurance commissions

We receive a one-off upfront commission when you take out an insurance policy we recommend.  The upfront commission will be between 0% and 66% of the first year’s annual premium.

We also receive an ongoing commission payment of between 0% and 27% of the annual premium for as long as you continue to hold the policy.

For example, for an insurance product with an annual premium of $2,000, where the issuer pays us an upfront commission of 60%, we will receive $1,200. The issuer will pay us 10% of the annual premium as ongoing commission for as long as you hold the product. Assuming an annual premium of $2,000, this equates to $200 per year.

You will be advised of the exact amount of these commissions in the SoA or RoA.

Other Benefits

We may also receive additional benefits by way of sponsorship of educations seminars, conferences or training days. Details of any benefits received above $100 will be maintained on a register which is available to you on request.

Adviser remuneration

Our representatives are paid a base salary and do not receive commissions from product issuers. However, we are owned by Gareth Daniels and Andrew Johnston and they share in the profits that we make.


We are required to disclose any associations or relationships between us, our related entities and product issuers that could reasonably be capable of influencing the financial services we provide to you.

No such associations or relationships exist.

Conflicts of Interest

Our representatives may recommend investments in shares that they hold or may hold in the future. You will be advised where a conflict of interest may exist and how the conflict will be managed.
