To make a meaningful difference to our clients, our planet and our community.
We strongly believe great financial planning and ethical investing advice changes people’s lives by giving peace of mind and confidence to know they can reach their goals and what’s important to them.
We are a boutique financial planning and ethical investing advisory firm, founded in 2014 by our director and financial planner, Peter Lee. Mark Holtom, one of our financial planners, became a shareholder and director in 2021.
We are now a team of seven who share the same passion and values for sustainability and who enjoy working together and with all our clients. We also work closely with several key partners – MyFiduciary, Consilium, Sustainable Business Network and likeminded businesses.
We have an office in the Auckland CBD but help clients throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.
