Why Clients Choose Us.

We like to say: We cannot control the economic weather … but we build lifeboats not jetboats!

A few of the reasons to choose us as your financial adviser are:

Independent: No “handcuffs”

Strategic is one of the few practices in NZ that can use the term “Independent”. This means that we are not aligned to any particular provider of financial products and we do not receive any incentives for selling products. So we offer clients absolute transparency.Our fee focus brings objectivity to our recommendations. We are free to select solutions that best meet your needs.

Educative: Knowledge is power

Albert Einstein

The lack of financial education has left many, even the most educated, exposed to poor advice. In this environment even poor advisers, whose advice would not stand scrutiny, were able to flourish.  To address this Strategic has developed, through its sister company OMNIMax, our Financial Health Check. We aim to increase your knowledge so you can fully understand our recommended strategies. We welcome your scrutiny!

“Care, Diligence and Skill.”

We encourage:
some to be more courageous,
others to be more cautious,
but all to be prudent.

The values that have been important to Strategic over the last 24 years are now embodied in Financial Advisers Act 2008 which defines by whom and how advice can be delivered.  This “raising of the bar” has been a welcome change to the profession. The disclosure regime makes it easy to understand whether an adviser has any potential for bias in their advice.

All Money is in Your Name

We manage money but we do not handle it!
All assets are maintained in your name. Other than our professional fees you never pay funds into our account. You sign off on every investment transaction and remain in total control. The lack of this safe guard is often the source of the frauds you would have read about. We have a heavier paper trail but it keeps our clients safe.
