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 for clients. There are no sales targets, no restrictive panels of 'preferred' products or investments 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. His experience in financial advice dates back to the late 1980s in the UK. 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 PhD candidate in the field of business 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.

Unusually for an AFA, Paul advises on both investments and insurance (personal, not F&G). It is easy to avoid commissions with Kiwisaver and investments without any compromise in quality or choice. However, the sales-driven insurance world is still commission based and to get around this, Paul offered the same range of products and solutions as the rest of the market, but at specially agreed reduced commission terms, reducing premiums.

Paul does not participate 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.

There is a deliberate lack of links to product providers on this site. No 'co-branding'. There are no calculators. 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.

If this all sounds like your kind of thing, please do get in touch for a no-cost initial chat to see if Paul can help.

Ideal clients

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 you 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. You will want to be fully involved and have the final say on everything, without any pressure.

You will be guided at every step, there are no silly questions and 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 you’re ready will any applications be made.  This is very different from a dictatorial recommendations and selling regime.

Ideally (but not exclusively) you will be a professional or business owner aged 30 to 55 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. If you feel you’re a fit for us and would like to know why we don't offer the latter, just ask.
