Authorised Financial Adviser

Auckland Financial (NZ) Limited is independently New Zealand owned and operated

Auckland Financial (NZ) Limited is independently New Zealand owned and operated

Auckland Financial is independent of any bank, institution or product provider and offers clients a unique bespoke service. 

Not being part of a larger organisation, but having access to the same research and investment and insurance solutions has distinct advantages. There are no sales targets, and no conflicts of interest. Clients are not part of a big 'machine'. 

Authorised Financial Adviser Paul King has both New Zealand and UK qualifications dating back to the late 1980s. He is also a member of the New Zealand Psychological Society and American Psychological Association. He is also a business coach specialising in leadership development and a research scholar in the field of psychology.

Paul believes his role is to work in the best interests of clients rather than for commercial gain; "when hiring an adviser, you don't want a salesman". Long opposed to the high commissions and hidden costs of New Zealand financial advice Paul works on an open and transparent basis. "There is no reason why clients should pay significantly more than they need to. Clients engage me as their adviser, not as a salesman".

There is no participation in any 'rewards' programmes which offer gifts or overseas trips. Paul's advice will not cost you any more than working with a fresh-faced young salesman new to financial services.

This is an advisory service. Every client Paul takes on is unique and their circumstances can never be properly assessed or resolved by clicking a button on a web page. If this is really all you want from your financial adviser there are plenty of such sites where you can get easy, very expensive solutions.

Most advisers justify the extremely high fees and commissions inherent in New Zealand financial service by using impressive looking 'research' on investment and insurance products. Every adviser, including Paul, has access to these and in fact they are mostly just 'push button' reports aimed at looking impressive.  Paul's guiding principles are these:

  • Insurance: Don't get distracted by the 'bells and whistles', use a provider with a great financial  strength and an excellent claims history
  • Investment: Don't pay for having access to massive choice you don't need or use and a heap of other 'middle-men' when you don't need to 

Paul's advice is fee based. Clients pay for his active personal advice. They don't pay way more in hidden costs and commissions.

Ideal clients

Clients that will benefit most from working with Paul are those that want personal advice on their financial situation as people, rather than sales opportunities. They will be people that want to talk to an experienced professional who is not in the slightest bit distracted by commissions and 'hidden' fees or targets and rewards programmes. They will appreciate complete transparency and understand that advice which is paid for when needed will be far more beneficial and cost effective for them than commissions and fees that are actually optional... not that the vast majority of advisers will tell them that. 

The vast majority of New Zealand individuals, families and businesses are chronically under-insured, heavily indebted for a long time and unprepared for the future. Auckland Financial is interested in working with clients who are looking for the guidance to change this.

The overwhelming consideration is that clients value an independent personal service dedicated to taking all the time and care necessary to get the right and best outcome rather than quick or seemingly cheap solutions. They will want to be fully involved and have the final say on everything, without any pressure.

Clients will want to be guided at every step and know there are no silly questions; it will take as long as it takes. You will be armed with a proper understanding of the options available and empowered to make your own decisions with as much help as you need. Only if and when a client is ready will any applications be made.  This is very different from a dictatorial recommendations and selling regime.

Ideally clients will be a professional people or business owners with a stable established income.

Auckland Financial arranges life, income and health insurance and advises on investments, savings and Kiwisaver but does not arrange non-bank or sub-prime mortgages or loans nor fire & general insurance.
