NZ Wealth & Risk - money for thoughtful Kiwis

Sign up to the newsletter

My goal is to create stuff that's interesting and useful – for myself, and for others.

Signing up to the newsletter is the best way of staying up to date with what is happening on this blog, my business (Fairhaven Wealth) and other projects. Before you sign up, however, it's worth knowing what you're signing up for, and whether it's likely to be interesting and/or useful for you. 

When you sign up

You'll receive periodic emails (~monthly, typically at the turn of the month). These newsletters include links to new articles, mention articles that have been popular recently, and include updates about my various projects.

You'll also receive a couple of things automagically:

  • a series of emails explaining "How to Build Your Own Financial Plan", covering various finance-related topics. This emails will come through every week or so for two or three months; plus
  • access to a PDF copy of my short book WEALTH: Simple Tips for Savvy Kiwis

Who the newsletter (and this blog) is for

"Kin, kith, and kindred spirits"

Over the years I've been privileged to get to know lots of people via this blog – some as clients, and many as engaged readers who've reached out or have bumped into in my day-to-day life. I consider many of these people friends. 

Some commonalities between people people who enjoy this blog:

  • they're thoughtful and switched on;
  • they're engaged with their personal finances;
  • they like to get different perspectives, and step back and try to see the bigger picture; and
  • they're nice, and like to engage with me on a good faith basis.

Of course, there are loads of thoughtful and nice people who aren't interested in what's on this blog and mailing list. That's fine! You do you.

It's not for everyone 

If you're struggling to make ends meet, this blog probably isn't the resource for you. For better or worse, I tend to write for people who already have some runs on the board in their professional and/or financial lives. 

I'll also get a few "hot button" things out of the way: I think Donald Trump is vile. I also consider vaccines to be modern miracles – whether they're for measles, chickenpox, hepatitis A or B, COVID-19, or any of the other forms of vaccines that are widely available.

If you disagree, you're welcome to your opinions, but we're probably not simpatico. 

Unsubscribe at any time. I mean it.

I'd rather write poignantly for 10 people than pointlessly for 10,000

I don't know about you, but I get waaaaaaaaaaay too many emails.

This is one of the reasons I send most of emails monthly rather than more frequently: I don't want to add to the pile!

I also believe that being thoughtful about how you consume media is really important. Part of this is being scrupulous about what you filter in and out. I encourage you to do the same, including in relation to my own mailing list.

If you don't find the emails I send interesting or useful, please unsubscribe. If you miss them, you're welcome to re-subscribe again at any point.
