I am a specialist mortgage adviser, with 32 years experience in banking. My experience is paramount in assisting clients secure finance to secure their dream of property ownership, whether that is an owner occupied home, an investment home or commercial property. My objectives are based on ensuring that clients get good advice about their lending, that they get a good deal, and that they enjoy the benefits of a loan structure that best suits their goals and objectives.

Hello, my name is Bruce, and I like helping people make good decisions about life, I enjoy helping people make sensible decisions about money management and wealth creation. I specialise in people relationships in helping clients clarify their thinking and planning with respect to life, relationships, money, and wealth creation, through research and proven life principles.

Commencing my career in senior management accountancy roles, I quickly found that my real passion was a love of working with people. I have been a Financial Adviser since 2009, having previously worked with three major New Zealand corporates. I enjoy sitting with my clients and uncovering what is important in their life both now and into the future, working with them to develop a plan to achieve their financial and lifestyle goals.

As a Financial Adviser, I can live out my passion to help you with your financial life-plan. This will get you to the financial future you dream about. People usually don’t know what they don’t know. I get excited to partner with someone to get from point A to point B with their expectations. It’s a journey, and I love to be part of that. Sometimes the journey might take us on a tangent, and that is fine, as long as we get there in the end. My experience in this industry since 2002 will stand us in good stead.

I love property and this is my dream role, getting the finance approved for clients to buy their first home or investment property. I love working with numbers (a chartered accountant) and am very knowledgeable on property matters (studied law/experienced property investor). It is important to take the time to understand why people want to buy a property, and to create a strategy around their 'why'.

I am a people's person, I love spending time with people chatting about their financial goals, dreams and ideas. A financial event's planner of sorts. People, their stories, accomplishments, successes and failures inspire me to know better and do better. No two stories are the same and that is what makes my job so inspiring. I am an empath by nature and truly "get" the highs and lows of life. I enjoy the pleasure of creating financial plans and seeing the results. I am passionate about life and my favorite quote happens to be: "Love life and life will love you back." I have a zest for life and I truly believe in the power of positive change.

Catherine Clarke

Adviser Support

I am currently part of the Home Loans team in Tauranga. I enjoy helping our Mortgage Advisers help our clients with their financing and keep things ticking along in the background. I'm passionate about the company I work for, the people I work with and the clients we help. Away from work I like being with my friends and family, playing a bit of sport and baking (and then eating it).

Aurea Cambie

Adviser Support

I am your friendly adviser support who looks after our awesome advisers and takes care of the administration tasks for our clients. I love helping people from all walks of life. It's an amazing feeling when you make someone's day without expecting anything in return. It was instilled in me to always be kind, treat everyone how you want to be treated and always give everything you've got when doing a job. My biggest passions are my family, especially my son who taught me how to be the person I am today. Helping people and making a difference to someone's life. Reading good books, health and fitness and watching rugby league. I love photography, gardening baking and going to the movies.

Helen King

I am your adviser support and administrative go to person for all things investment. I'm the person who keeps things running smoothly in the background and makes sure everything; right down to the tiniest little details, are how you want them to be. If this can be done with a bit of humour, so much the better!
