About Me

I’m the director of Phoenix Adviser Group. I’m involved in Ashhurst community projects and I’m also a lifetime member of World Wide Fund for Nature. I enjoy philosophy and teaching financial literacy. I have a passion for conversation and for helping people, which compliments my desire as an independent broker to see people looked after during times of disaster.

About Me

Kia Ora, I’m Brayds, the Phoenix teams’ office administrator. I first joined Phoenix Adviser Group Ltd. on work experience and I love it so much here I just haven’t left. Some of my favourite activities include going out with friends, philosophy and competitive video gaming. I love the outdoors and all that comes with it, from sandstorms to ants. It’s all harmonic to me. I come from a big family, I have 6 siblings and I am the eldest. Now I have another set of family, I hope you enjoy reading about them here!

About Me

I’m one of Phoenix's registered Financial Advisors. I have a background in customer service, particularly from my work as a bartender in some of Palmerston North’s popular bars. I come from a mixed family - my Father being Indonesian and my Mother, a Kiwi; something which has given me a level of insight and cognizance regarding the many cultures of the world.

Travel is one of my passions, having visited 20 different countries so far with many more on the agenda. Memorable times during my travels include visiting the North/South border on the Korean Peninsula, walking the Roman Forum and boating around the Sunda Islands archipelago. I also enjoy reading, my favourite book being “All Quiet on the Western Front” by E. M. Remarque.

About Me

As one of the Phoenix team, I take pride in my position as a Registered Financial Adviser. Drawing from my own experiences and expertise to provide advice, support and security to individuals looking to protect themselves and those who rely on them from the unforeseen.

When not embracing a cup of coffee in great company, I can be found amongst the daily chaos of the Taranaki Vet Center working in the role of a Registered Veterinary Nurse and puppy trainer.

Fourty-two. I checked it very thoroughly, and that quite definitely is the answer. I think the problem is that you’ve never actually known what the question is.Deep Thought (Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy)
About Me

I’m Phoenix Adviser Group’s contracted GIT/EE (Geek of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering). I’m passionate about technology, naturally curious, and enjoy taking things apart to learn how they work. I am adventurous and enjoy driving or walking through the great outdoors.
