Thanks for checking out the NZ Wealth & Risk blog!
This blog is dedicated to savvy Kiwis who are engaged with their financial futures. The aim of this site is to provide INTERESTING and USEFUL resources with no hidden agenda.
(My only agenda is for a small portion of readers to become clients (or refer clients), purchase my books, and subscribe to my courses. Even then, my aspiration is to provide advice and resources that are on your side.)
My name is Sonnie Bailey (LLB BCom MEntr DipFincPlan AFA). This is my personal blog.
I’m an Authorised Financial Adviser (AFA) and former lawyer with experience in the financial services and trustee industries. I’m the proud founder of Fairhaven Wealth, which makes this blog possible.
I write on this site without fear or favour. I’m not pushing products or advertising other people’s services. As much as anything, this website is a response to conflicted remuneration and business structures that see Kiwis receive sales spiels masquerading as advice, rather than the high quality advice they deserve.
I subscribe to the view of having “strong opinions, lightly held”, and reserve the right to change my views (or better articulate them) in the future.
If you have feedback, questions, or suggestions about what you’d like to see on this site, drop me a line. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2017 I created the NZ Wealth & Risk podcast. In 2018 I was too busy to continue and it fell by the wayside - but I may pick it up again at some point. You should be able to find it on any good podcast player if you search "Wealth & Risk NZ". It's available on iTunes here.
