MEET OUR TEAM
Gary has been a Finance and insurance Advisor in the Financial Services Industry for 30 years.
During that time he has run his own Finance Company, placed many millions of dollars of lending and insurance cover as well as assisting many into their first home.
He has even been involved in designing new insurance and lending products over the years.
With a wide range of contacts in the Industry and experience managing his own and other business’ Gary is well placed to advise and design business and shareholder insurance packages.
Many clients have been surprised at the comprehensive levels of cover they can achieve for similar premiums that they have already been paying.
Gary’s mantra is all about ensuring that the client is getting the best value for their premium dollar.
Sometimes that means redesigning existing insurance packages or getting insurers to offer new ones. Almost any situation can be insured, it’s just a matter of finding a reputable insurer and striking a rate.
Putting together commercial finance packages for developers or those adding to their Investment portfolio takes more than being able to crunch numbers.
Having long term relationships with the lenders is also critical and with 30 years experience, Gary certainly has these and is happy to use them to his clients advantage.

IN HIS OWN WORDS:
I am married for 5 years now and we are blessed with two beautiful daughters. My wife is a New Zealand Registered Nurse working in Northshore Hospital Elective Surgery Department. She comes home with stories I wish I could help with or better yet provide relief to families that are exhausted from processing requirements before they can have the surgery, unfortunately, most of the time re-scheduled. I have a young family and as immigrants, we do not have much family support here in NZ, that is why I value having insurance in place to look after me and my family when needed most
I’m Laarnie and I am from the Philippines. I am a registered nurse based in Hamilton. I have been living here in NZ with my family for more than 8 years.
My goal is to help clients from ensuring the best insurance products that meet their family’s/individual needs as well as helping them in stressful times that they have to make a claim.
With my medical background, I am aiming to provide a more comprehensive advice on insurance products specially those that relate with clients health needs.
