Martin has owned and operated his own mortgage advisory and financial service business since 1989. Prior to this he worked for ten years in the finance industry including holding senior positions with General Finance and AGC in New Zealand and Alex Lawrie Factors in England. He was an inaugural member of SHARE and has previously been a Board Member.
After initially specialising with commercial mortgage advice he naturally progressed into providing advice for clients financing their homes and residential investment properties.
In 1992, in order to offer a more comprehensive service, Martin added the world of assurance to his business. This initially allowed Martin to arrange mortgage protection cover but quickly moved to include all types of ‘risk protection’ as well as savings and superannuation.
He is a keen advocate of KiwiSaver and has been advising clients with it, since it was started.
Martin is an Authorised Financial Adviser and is a member of Financial Advice NZ.
Outside work Martin is involved in Surf Life Saving and is a Life Member of New Zealand’s oldest club, Lyall Bay. In 2008 he was awarded a Service Award by Surf Life Saving New Zealand.
He is also a football nut, and continues to play for the ‘Seatoun Originals’ Masters team, is a member of The Phoenix and has followed Wolverhampton Wanderers since 1972.
