"Doing business ethically is an integral part of establishing trusting relationships and an effective business culture, and I am delighted that the Institute of Business Ethics will be able to contribute towards a stronger appreciation of professional ethics in the New Zealand finance sector by working with the IFA," says Philippa Foster Back OBE, Director of the IBE.
"The leadership displayed by the IFA in this area will help ensure that financial advisers in NZ are indeed amongst the best trained and most professional at what they do. I hope that this partnership will be the first of many in New Zealand.
