I joined AMP City Financial Services (AMP City) in March of 2003 after working in the London insurance market for a syndicate of Lloyds. I now manage my own insurance portfolio, made up of a vast array of clients including individuals, families, sole traders, companies and entreprenuers. My clients benefit from a strong technical expertise in risk assessment, policy management and claims negotiation. I have a strong interest in personal risk (life, Income Protection, Trauma and Health Insurance) markets, but I am a General Insurance specialist by trade, focusing on such risk solutions as liability and small business coverage, private home, motor, asset protection and commercial property. I have a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Otago and am a Director of AMP City.

I joined AMP City Financial Services (AMP City) in April 2017 having retired from a professional cricket career of 20 years, and became a director in 2020.

My career in cricket began at Northern Districts Cricket Association in 1998, before playing for New Zealand from 2001-2007. Following this I moved to the UK permanently to play for Gloucestershire County Cricket Club where I finished in September 2016. I moved my family back to Wellington, New Zealand to pursue an opportunity with AMP City as an insurance and investment adviser, as well as represent the Wellington Firebirds.

I specialise in personal and business risk insurance. This includes advice in the areas of life, trauma, and disability insurances; income protection insurance; home, contents, motor, and watercraft insurance, and business and liability insurance.

I joined the AMP as an Agent on the 4th March 1968 and over many years have advised people on products incorporating personal risk products such as life, trauma, disability and income protection, plus general insurance products such as house, contents, motor vehicle, pleasure-craft, buildings, businesses and all facets of liability cover. I have been recognised by AMP with many awards such as membership of the prestigious AMICUS Club and receiving the Pinnacle Award in 1988 which is awarded to the highest performing agent across the industry. I have always recognised service and quality of product as a priority when dealing with prospective and existing clients.

I joined AMP City Financial Services (AMP City) in December 2016 after 4 years as an AMP Adviser with Gisborne Financial Services. Gisborne-based, my insurance portfolio has a strong rural & commercial focus. As a previous small business owner I understand the importance of quality advice and a detailed risk protection plan. 
I also offer personal risk insurance, including life, income protection, trauma, disability, health and general insurance. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two boys – surfing and playing sport, as well as supporting local initiatives and events.

I joined AMP City Financial Services (AMP City) in January 1990 as a financial adviser. My career prior to this was in the financial markets as a money market dealer in New Zealand representing AMP, CitiBank and NatWest Bank plus Bank of New Zealand as Manager - Money Market Services, based in Wellington. I believe I am in the business of helping my clients achieve their financial goals through long term saving and risk management. I am keen they have the correct covers in place for their domestic general insurance (house, contents, motor vehicles etc.) and business-related insurance. I also specialise in personal risk covers (life, disability, trauma) for family protection and key person business insurance.

Appointed as a Director of Wellington City Financial Services (trading as AMP City Financial Services) in 2005 (retiring as a director in 2020), John’s role within AMP City is continuing with what he has been succeeding at for over 20 years; taking care of his clients’ insurance requirements.  John is a strong believer in “honesty, integrity and service.” John is Wellington born and bred, married with three children and has lived in the Eastern Suburbs for over 45 years.  John’s clients are located locally and nationally. These clients have chosen John to provide insurance ranging from multi-million dollar buildings, to third party car insurance as well as life and income protection insurance.  An ample understanding of property, business and personal risk protection is only part of what has made John a successful insurance adviser in New Zealand.  What he is admired for first and foremost, is his ability to be there for his clients when they need him most.
