Our Team

Faye Koelet

Adviser Support

I am part of the team in the Timaru Office. I work with Robbie and Emily to create personalised plans for our clients. I am passionate about education, helping people understand more about different types of insurance and being there for our clients when they need it.
I specialize in keeping our data as up to date as possible so that we can reach you when we need to. I also maintain our beautiful coffee machine and can make you a great cup of coffee.

Adviser Support

I'm the adviser support to great advisers and your friendly alternative contact. I help with everything administration and I aim to make sure you really understand the advice process that our team provides you. I'm guilty of inventing some words that ultimately make sense in the end! I like to look on the bright side of life, so you'll often be greeted with a smile and given half a chance. I'll try to get you smiling too. I'm passionate about making sure you have a pleasant and fulfilling experience when you work with us. I like to keep things efficient and as easy as possible for our advisers. I really believe in what we do here (I'm a client too), and I often put myself on both sides of the fence to take stock of what's working and what needs tweaking, to make sure that you're going to walk away satisfied. Clear communication is important to me and I've always believed knowledge is power. Just like life, this industry is always changing, so as I learn things along the way, I like to make sure I pass my learnings on too, so we all share in the "ah ha" moment.
