Rothbury Life Becomes Lifetime

Rothbury Life are excited to announce our new name - Lifetime. After a merger with Lifetime in 2016, and since with Camelot in 2018, we are all unifying under the name ‘Lifetime’ and our ethos of ‘Advice For Life’.

With a team totalling over 160 people in 16 centres nationwide, we are now one of the country’s largest financial advisories. Together, we share a focus on creating greater financial certainty for all our clients, building on the strong foundation each company brings.

So what does this mean for you as a client?

Little will change and all your existing services remain in place. We still have the same friendly and experienced team of advisers in the same locations. We are now able to offer even more depth to your financial planning, with personalised investments advice such as managed portfolios, KiwiSaver and planning for your goals around retirement and legacies. We can also assist with UK Pension and Australian Super transfers.

Rothbury Insurance Brokers remain our nationwide strategic partners for general insurance such as property and business insurances. We will keep working closely with them to deliver outstanding service to you.

If you have any questions around the name change, or the new services we can offer, we’d love to hear from you.

Thank you for your continued business and loyalty, we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Market & Portfolio Update - April 2022

Global share markets continued their choppy start to 2022 during April.For New Zealand based investors, a fall in the NZ dollar played an important role in helping offset the volatility global share markets experienced. The NZ dollar fell against most major currencies supporting the returns of unhedged overseas assets (assets that are free to move with exchange rates). As a result, ‘unhedged’ overseas investments fell by only 1.8% for NZ based investors.

The KiwiSaver Gender Divide – Why are women saving less and what can be done to combat this?

Recent data shows that, on average, women have 20% less in their KiwiSavers than men. The gap being at its largest between men and women in their 40s and 50s. There are a few factors that come into play causing this divide and although it will take years to achieve equality, there are ways in which we can be proactive to help close the gap. As of August 2021, the gender pay gap is at 9.1% in New Zealand, a decrease of about 0.4% from 2020’s stats.
