Don is a family man living on Auckland’s North Shore. Aside from his work as a Registered Financial Adviser he is a trustee for Bays Youth Community Trust. His spare time interests include tennis and working out in the gym. Much of his working life has involved managing risk and helping people. He served in the NZ Police in a wide variety of roles and this gave him a great understanding of people and what makes them tick.
After leaving the Police he established and developed a specialist security company which enabled him to develop skills in many areas of business and management. Over the years he has seen many folk experience significant tragic events, and the serious consequences that can affect those involved for the rest of their lives. That knowledge is valuable in helping people put together a plan to protect them should bad things happen.
Don is an expert in the field of business and personal insurance. He uses an educational process that encourages clients to think about risk management and the importance of having a workable financial plan for the future that will provide financial security irrespective of what may occur to clients as they live their lives.
Like all of the Solutions Broker Group advisers he has access to the entire financial services industry as well as competent accountants, lawyers, mortgage advisers and wealth creation experts, so he can help his clients pick and choose to get the right strategies and goals in place for individuals and businesses.
