About Lifetime

Our Story

In 1999, a 10-person strong team of AMP advisers flew the coop to launch their own advice business. With the mission to provide full service financial advice, they established Argent Financial Services in a purpose-built head office in Peterborough St, Christchurch.

They quickly grew, facilitating several significant mergers and acquisitions over the years, including the namesake Lifetime purchase in 2006, Staniford Insurance in 2007, Swain Financial Services in 2009, Meridian Brokers in 2012, Rothbury Life in 2016 and more recently, merging with Camelot in 2018.

Today, Lifetime employs over 140 people in 16 locations throughout New Zealand. As a market leader in financial advice, Lifetime is proud to have advised over 100,000 clients.

At Lifetime, our team are highly experienced in a broad range of financial disciplines, including specialists in lending, insurance, and investments, for you, your family, and your business.

All our advisers have a special skill - listening. We are here to understand your financial goals and learn what is important to you about money. Only then can we tailor a plan specific to your needs. You can be assured that when you are working with a Lifetime adviser, you are in the care of an entire team of experienced professionals. Whether you are just getting started with KiwiSaver, planning to buy your first home, protecting your financial position, or looking to grow your wealth – we can design the personal financial plan to achieve your goals.

In today’s world of information, everything is at your fingertips. It can seem easy to find out what you think you need to know about financial planning. The hardest part is knowing if you are making the right decisions.  At Lifetime, we will answer the questions you didn’t know you had to ask.
