Our reason for being
In a nutshell, we believe in quality financial advice. We’ve been working in financial services communications for eons, and know the value of good advisers and what they can help make happen for Kiwis. It’s good stuff, and we’d like to help more advisers do more of what they’re great at - helping New Zealanders make informed financial decisions.

Working with FINERGY has been great for our business. We get loads of good feedback about the content we are putting out, and getting the automated systems in place was exactly what we needed to run more efficiently as a business.
