Experience and Qualifications
I have been in the financial services industry for over 25 years (mainly insurance and investments) and started mortgage broking in 2005. Since then I have had experience in all types of lending including first home buyers, construction loans, refinancing, investment property and business and development funding. My speciality area is investment property loans and I own investment property myself.

For your protection, I maintain a Professional Indemnity Insurance Policy of no less than $1 million (maximum cover $1 million per claim) via the Allied Kiwi group scheme. In proven cases this protects my clients from financial loss due to fraud, gross negligence, gross misrepresentation etc (if perpetrated by me).This policy is currently held with NZI.

ANZ, ASB, General Finance, Liberty Financial, NBNZ, Sovereign, the Co-Operative Bank and Westpac.

Risk Insurance Providers

How we get paid
On settlement of a mortgage or issuance of a risk insurance policy, I receive commission from the above product providers I deal with. The commission is generally of an upfront nature but may also include a small renewal or trail commission. I also receive a fixed rate roll over fee from some providers if I assist in re fixing your loan.

A full schedule of all providers and their commission rates are available on request.

In the rare event that you may require me to act on your behalf in a transaction whereby I do not receive a commission from the above panel of providers or you request me to act on your behalf with a provider we do not hold an accreditation with I may charge a one off fee for this work to be completed. Any such fee would be agreed in advance and authorised by you in writing.
