Searching the Financial Service Providers Register

Your search options and the information we hold about financial service providers

You can search the FSPR to identify financial service providers (FSPs) and find information about them — such as which services they're registered for and, if applicable, are licensed or certified to provide.

How to search

You can search for an FSP by entering any of the following details in the search field:

  • FSP number
  • New Zealand Business Number (NZBN)
  • current or previous name
  • trading name
  • other name (alias)

You can also specify whether the FSP you’re searching for:

  • contains the characters you’ve entered, or
  • equals the characters you’ve entered (an exact match).

Advanced search options

You can use the advanced search to find specific results for:

  • types of FSPs — for example search only for individuals or only for entities
  • the status of an FSP — for example search only for FSPs that are registered or that have been suspended or deregistered
  • FSPs registered on certain dates (or between 2 specific dates)
  • Keywords within a business address — for example by including a street name or a city
  • financial services that FSPs are registered to provide.

You can combine different fields to narrow down your results.
