February 2023

Well, it’s certainly been a wild start to 2023!

With many areas across the country hit by wild weather over the last month, we hope you, your family and your customers are safe and well.   


No it’s not a typo... a quinquagenarian is a term used for someone in their 50’s. Bet you can’t say it out loud!

This year we’re celebrating 50-years as a successful homegrown NZ business. We’d like to say thank you for helping us get here. Financial advisers have been fundamental to our success so far.

After all, we were founded by adviser, Gordon Watson, and his wife Shirley, under the motto “for advisers, by advisers”.

Hear from our CEO Melissa Cantell and Chief Sales and Services Officer, Bronwyn Kirwan about our 50th, what’s going on in our industry, and what’s coming up for advisers over the course of 2023.
