I have been involved in the banking and finance industry for over 40 years, so have a strong overall understanding of the industry and what is available for my clients. I have a New Zealand Diploma of Business, and I am a Registered Financial Adviser.
In 2006 I became a self employed Mortgage Adviser, enabling me to offer a wider range of products, which meant more opportunities for my clients. In 2008 I joined Mortgage Link, buying into Mortgage Link Waikato Ltd as a joint company director, and later becoming the sole director.
I now offer mortgage and insurance advice and see myself as a risk management consultant who helps Kiwi’s build wealth through property ownership and helps to protect them and their families financially from unforeseen events.
The best thing I can do for my clients is to offer sound advice on their mortgage and insurance products to ensure that both these products continue meet their individual needs. Getting these structured correctly is crucial. To do this I keep up to date with what products are available as insurance companies in particular are continually changing/enhancing what they can offer and regularly review my clients needs.
I grew up in Te Awamutu, and have been living in Hamilton since 1983. I am married to Adele and we have 3 adult children, and one grandson. I enjoy all sports, and have represented New Zealand in power lifting, waka ama and dragon boating. My dedication to training to be a high achiever in these sports is the same dedication to looking out for my clients needs.
