Gavin gained his Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Auckland in 1999, majoring in Economics and Financial Accounting. He has also completed his Graduate Diploma in Business Studies (Personal Financial Planning) through Massey University. Gavin is a Certified Financial PlannerCM Practitioner, a member of the Institute of Financial Advisers and the New Zealand Trustees Association.
Gavin is an Authorised Financial Adviser (AFA), FSP 7061. This was presented to him at a formal ceremony in December 2010 acknowledging the first AFA's in New Zealand.
Before joining NZFP, he had New Zealand based and overseas managerial roles, with his last role prior to joining NZFP providing specialised retirement planning, investment advice and risk management for a global corporate here in NZ. He says this experience has taught him the importance of forward planning, relationship building and competent financial management.
On a personal level, Gavin believes that the decreasing financial support provided by the Government and the increasing awareness among the community that you must provide for yourself has led to the retirement issue becoming ever more complex.
"I see my role as assisting clients to achieve their lifestyle goals now and in the future, coaching them on their journey towards financial independence in retirement by providing competent advice and careful planning."
Gavin is married with two daughters and a son and lives in Devonport on Auckland's North Shore. He is a current member of the Takapuna Rotary Club and a past-President of the Devonport Rotary Club. His interests include fine wine and dining, along with outdoor pastimes such as fishing, diving, tramping and hunting.
