What Our Clients Say

We are wholly committed to providing the best possible service for our clients. Take a look at what some of them have said.
His knowledge and competence in planning for financial security is excellent.
In November 2004 we invited Jonathan to prepare a financial plan for us. This plan enabled us to look at our assets apart from the family home, organise them more effectively, understand our investment risk profile and plan so that in our retirement we had good understanding as how to make those assets work for us in the best possible way. Now, ten years on and mostly retired we have never regretted this step. 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.

Bank fund managers 'conflicted on exclusions'

One person's unethical investment is another's opportunity

Stuff JOHN BERRY July 22 2018
OPINION: Around the world investors agree that ethical or values-based investing can make financial as well as moral sense, but there is no agreement on making those ethical judgements.

Last September the NZ Super Fund added recreational cannabis to its excluded investments list.

Growing marijuana is big business and now legal in eight US states, with central Denver alone dedicating 400,000 square metres of industrial buildings.

The NZ Super Fund's decision is based on the intent behind New Zealand's international treaties, current law and government policy. Many investors will agree with the Super Fund and many will not – there's no right answer.
