Our desire is to provide you with personalised insurance advice where you understand the why, the what and the how. Why is this cover required, what cover do I need and how will it protect me if something was to go wrong.

We work with you to ensure your cover continues to protect all that is important, as you move through your different life stages.  We focus on building long term relationships built on trust and personalised service. We do this by understanding your situation, preparing a plan tailored to your situation and then regularly reviewing the plan to ensure it continues to meet your needs. We work with all the leading insurers in New Zealand so you can be sure that any recommendation is based on the best solution for you.

"Guy has looked after our insurance needs at work, and also for me personally for a very long time. During this time it hasn't simply been a case of rolling over the policy year after year. Guy has always worked to make sure we have the best policy for our needs at the time. This has involved savings, better cover, and further options. It has never been about always increasing the cover, but more about make sure the right cover is in place. Working with Guy is easy because you know he really does care about the outcome for the client."
