Jonathan is meticulous in the detail that he continues to provide but always presents us with a range of options as he patiently helps us understand investment options. His advice is given in a most professional, helpful, friendly and caring way that always helps us invest responsibly to meet our long term goals. His knowledge and competence in planning for financial security is excellent. We have had no hesitation in recommending his services to other family members.

Elizabeth O'Connor
I was delighted to have the opportunity to invest responsibly through Jonathan's interest in this area.
I have been a client of Rise Financial since its inception, and was associated with Jonathan and his team for a number of years before that. I have always found them to be professional, friendly and helpful. Jonathan is very thorough and has extensive knowledge of the field of finance and investment. I was delighted to have the opportunity also to invest responsibly through Jonathan's interest in this area.
Anne Kroening
Jonathan keeps up to date with this growing market and therefore is able to keep us informed of the increasing opportunities to participate in responsible investments.
We chose to invest for our retirement with Rise Financial Ltd for many reasons and two in particular. Firstly, we have been salaried employees all our working lives so have not developed any useful knowledge about investments. Jonathan really understands needs for investment and therefore is very good at offering information and options, listening to our retirement plans and assisting us in making appropriate decisions. Secondly, we are particularly interested in ensuring our investments are used to assist the healthy, ethical developments within New Zealand and beyond. Jonathan keeps up to date with this growing market and therefore is able to keep us informed of the increasing opportunities to participate in responsible investments.

Tax dodgers and predatory lenders oust fossil fuels and tobacco from KiwiSavers' top 10 hate list

Stuff Rob Stock 29/10/2020
Fossil fuels, and tobacco have been squeezed out of KiwiSavers’ top 10 ethical concerns by abusive social media companies, corporations that don't pay their fair share of taxes, factory farming and predatory lending.

Research paid for by the Responsible Investment Association of Australasia (RIAA) and New Zealand’s Mindful Money places tobacco eleventh and fossil fuels 12th in the list of things most people did not want their KiwiSaver money invested in.

Investment News 13 Sept, 2020

Sorry Shane Jones, 'woke' banking is the future

Stuff Daniel Dunkley Aug 06 2020
OPINION: The word “woke” originated in African-American communities in the 1960s to describe a person’s enlightened awareness of social and racial issues in the civil rights era.

Strange then, that the slang term has been used to bash New Zealand’s state-owned lender Kiwibank in recent weeks.

New Zealand First MP and associate minister for state-owned enterprises Shane Jones has lashed out at
Kiwibank’s plans to withhold banking services from the fossil fuel, military-grade weapons, synthetic drugs, palm oil, predatory lending, casino, and tobacco industries under its Responsible Business Banking strategy.

“The bank that goes woke may end up broke, so hop down out of your sermonising and join the rest of the world,” Jones told RNZ last month.
