Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Feel free to get in touch with the person who introduced you to Genistar or Jeff Lestz if you can't find the answers you're looking for here.

Is This A Legitimate Company?

Genistar is regulated and authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority # 472050. We are registered with the Office of Fair Trading and have a Consumer Credit Licence. Our co-CEO’s Jeffrey Lestz has more than 30 years of experience in the financial services industry and have built a top-class reputation.

We are an approved distribution company working with some of the finest names in the financial services Industry.

Is This Opportunity For Real?

Genistar is not one of those gimmicky “pyramid-type things”. Many of our associates start part-time and earn income on a commission basis when they educate families and improve their financial future. We have a distribution model which allows us to hire and train the right individuals who then become qualified, and can advance into management and open new offices. We do not charge clients for our services, nor are our associates required to purchase products. We are paid by the financial companies that we can introduce our clients to.

It Says That You Cannot Hold Client's Money; Why?

We are a third party intermediary; which simply means that when we handle financial transactions for clients, the money goes directly to the servicing company, not us. So we do not have separate accounts for holding clients’ money.

Is This A Job?

At Genistar we embrace the free enterprise system. Fortunately, there are many people in this world who prefer a normal, routine job, but we are not among them! Many of us sacked our bosses years ago, or plan to shortly! We are looking for like-minded people who want to have the freedom of being self-employed but desire the stability and support of a company. With the exception of our administrative team, all of our people are independent contractors on a commission basis. We like it that way- no bosses, no nine to five. Freedom with personal discipline.

And an unlimited future!

Is It For Me?

Genistar is definitely not for everybody. Do you have an entrepreneurial spirit, not looking to be controlled? Are you becoming frustrated that at your present position it will take far too long to reach your goals and dreams? We are looking for the right people, with the heart of a champion, who want to be Somebody Special. It is imperative that our people be: 1) honest, 2) enjoy helping others, and 3) love to compete!

In addition, we hire people with the following criterion in mind: Would I be willing for this person to come to my home for dinner and spend time with my family?

What About Customer Service?

In the Financial Services Industry there is a core tenet of Treating Customers Fairly. We desire to go beyond that. At Genistar, we answer to the moral principle of, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. It is our company’s belief that the customer is always right, and we want to provide the highest level of service in the United Kingdom.

Is There Any Expense?

Like any career in the Financial Services Industry, there is training and course work. We supply most of the training and materials. However, we want to know who is serious- minded. As a result we require a £140 fee that goes to offset training, materials, money-laundering checks, background checks, address verifications, FCA authorisation, etc.

This fee is 100% refundable within the first two weeks should you change your mind for any reason.

How Can I Find Out More?

We have a two-step interview process.

The first step is where most people come to one of our Company Overviews in one of our local offices (in some areas it may be a larger venue) to learn about who we are and what we do and the various opportunities within Genistar. This means we won’t waste your time or ours with a series of one-on-one interviews only to discover that there is no mutual interest. Secondly, after the Company Overview, if we both like what we see, then the next step is a one-to-one interview to answer each other’s questions and get to know each other better.

If you would like to be put in touch with one of our local Executive Vice Presidents, please feel free to contact our Co-CEO Jeff Lestz at jeff.lestz@genistar.net

My Finances Are A Mess, Can I Do This?

We have found that some of our best Associates were previous clients! We have helped many people who then become so excited about what we were able to do for them that they want to help others. Having perfect finances is NOT a prerequisite; being a good person is. We do a series of background checks, Money Laundering, Right to Work, Terrorism Screening, and more.

If you are a good and honest person who wants to help others, you can do this. We will train you.

What Kind Of Money Can I Make?

At Genistar we are all independent, self employed contractors; not employees (except the administrative staff). You can make as much or as little as you want. We get paid for results. If you do not complete the training, you will make nothing! Many of our part time people make an extra £500 – £1,000 per month. Others make much more. Our top full time person, Steve Jenkins, earned over £100,000 in his first year, full time.

You tell us how much you need to earn, and we will help you design a programme and work schedule to accomplish that.

Will I Fit In?

We are a company of positive, optimistic dreamers! We love life and love helping people. If we’re not the right business for you, then find something that you can be passionate about!

Change YOUR world!
