Management Team

Meet our Management Team.

Peter Cave

Managing Director

Following an early career in engineering and management, Peter joined the financial services industry in 1988 and formed his own advisory business. Following a period of business growth in which Peter also studied to attain the international designations of Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU), he undertook a series of small business mergers and acquisitions resulting in the formation of Camelot in 2009, a business which subsequently merged with Lifetime in 2018.

Peter is exceptionally passionate about improving the levels of financial literacy and making financial advice available to New Zealanders and whilst he enjoys less direct personal contact with clients today, he enjoys the challenge of developing the Lifetime team in their quest to work in partnership with clients to help them create greater financial certainty through all life stages.
