Jocelyn is a Financial Adviser with a focus on helping her clients understand money and be good with money. She provides advice on financing money when needed it, and protecting her clients from losing money when unfortunate events happen. Jocelyn enjoys working closely with her clients. She is excellent in providing a customised financial solution based on her clients’ current situation and future goals, and giving step-by-step guidance.

I am a veteran of the life insurance industry having started at the bottom and working my way up to senior management roles before starting my own advisory. My upbringing in a small country town taught me the value of building enduring relationships which have been an integral part of my business. I have experienced first hand the value of insurance at times of business and family crises. I love meeting new people in my role.

I was born in the UK and grown in NZ, I have spent my working life in sales and service and managed a vast range of client expectations. I entered the financial services industry in 2007, initially as a Mobile Mortgage Manager helping my clients to achieve their dream of home ownership. It is there that I found my true calling and a very personal commitment to help them to achieve their life goals and stay protected on life's journey.

Having had 32 years in the business I have had an opportunity to develop my skills in the areas that are of most interest to me. Those being Personal and Business Risk along with Group Employee Benefits. I enjoy talking to business owners and working with them on solutions to protect their business profitability and ownership. Over the years we have implemented many share purchase and key person contracts and witnessed the importance of having a well constructed Risk Management Plan.

I'm passionate about helping my clients get their financial house in order and I love my role as a Life Planner / Financial Coach. I help clients assess their full financial picture, set short- and long-term goals and then make a plan for how to get there. I always compare it to travel, as if you want a travel experience and head out into the world without a plan, you will have good or bad experiences based around luck and reactiveness.

Zeke has been working in the employee benefits space for over a decade, starting out in administration and account management roles here in NZ before heading overseas. He spent time with an international brokerage in Sydney before taking a role with MLC, one of Australia's top corporate super scheme providers. Primarily working in an Account Management role, he also spent time managing operational teams and helping to design and test systems to administer group schemes.

I’m a proud Certified Financial Planner based in Auckland but with clients everywhere. I’ve been helping people live their best lives with great financial planning for 20 years. My wife, Jude and I are shareholders in Lifetime and believe strongly in the company's values and purpose. My own retirement is a long way off and my young ones Sophie and Oliver require feeding for a few years to come so I welcome new clients!

I am an authorised financial adviser who works with everyday people like you and me to realise your financial goals and dreams but it’s not about money. It’s about you, your passions in life, your family and your loved ones. Life’s journey is not always as smooth as we want it to be. Unexpected events happen that can stop us at times from living every day to the fullest. Your journey could be buying your first home, planning for their retirement, your next big trip or more time with the family.

I am an Authorised Financial Adviser, and work with families and individuals to make smart money decisions. I believe that everyone needs a trusted person to help guide them on their financial journey.

I am an AFA (Authorised Financial Adviser) who is passionate about helping people to visualize their financial journey, and would encourage everyone to have a personal financial plan - the earlier the better as it is never to early to start thinking about the future! It is easy to aim for goals in life, but not always simple to keep on the path to get there, many rocks can get in the way. As your financial coach I can help you keep focused on this. The foundation for our long term professional relationship is one of trust and confidence ensuring strength and certainty.

I am an Authorised Financial Advisor with a wealth of international experience having worked in a variety of countries. I am passionate about helping people achieve their dreams and guiding them through life’s journey. I love helping create a degree of certainty in an uncertain environment. I really enjoy hearing what peoples “Bucket List” is and try and put a plan in place to help them achieve this.

Lucie Moloney-Geany

Project Co-ordinator
BA Honours

I joined the team in 2018 after relocating from London where I studied a Bachelor Honours degree in History at King’s College London. Along with my studies I undertook personal research and was among the student publishing team of the King’s College London Student Journal of International Affairs and Human Rights - I am a keen debater and love learning new perspectives.

I am all about solving problems. There is nothing more exciting then having that Eureka! moment- although I am not solving the theories of physics and maths - I am making my clients and co-workers lives easier. Finding ways to simplify you, and make the journey from A to B as streamlined as possible. This is what makes me tick.

I moved back to New Zealand to be closer to family and plant my roots back home. Apart from my English accent I am a Kiwi through and through.

When I take off my thinking cap you'll probably find me at a coffee shop sampling local brews. I have an absolute love of coffee and am a champion for small businesses.

Regional News

There have been a lot of changes here in New Zealand as a result of COVID-19, in particular the Government announcing a Level 4 Alert and placing the country into lockdown.

With the country now in isolation, there is understandably a lot of concern around people’s health and finances.

As an Authorised Financial Adviser, I would like to share some tips on how you can help yourself financially during these times, with some practical financial to-do’s whilst in lock down.
