The Advisers 1 Ltd is a recently formed broker business however the owner, Bruce Flay, began as an AMP Life agent in 1983. In more recent years the general insurance book developed with a variety of insurers and the business adapted so these services could be extended to their clients.
Today the business is well established in New Plymouth with clients throughout New Zealand, serviced by Bruce and seven colleagues.
For NZbrokers, the addition of The Advisers 1 strengthens our position as the Challenger Brand and broadens the group’s experience within the Life & Health sector.
On behalf of all Members of NZbrokers we extend a warm welcome to The Advisers 1 team.
On 1 October 2016 Apex General Ltd became a Member of the NZbrokers group, the largest broker network in New Zealand.
Apex was founded in 1992 by their current Chairman, Andrew Hay. Initially Apex was established through the amalgamation of several local broker businesses, growing to become one of the largest privately owned brokers in New Zealand.
In 2006 Apex became a foundation Member of Insurance Advisernet New Zealand Ltd and since then Apex has continued to grow significantly, to the point where it became necessary to fully control and manage the business, which is achievable as a Member of NZbrokers.
James McGhie, Managing Director of Apex, and his fellow Directors considered several options and chose NZbrokers because they recognised the benefit of our size, our services and our strength in New Zealand and overseas through the AUB Group network.
We are pleased to extend a warm welcome to the Apex team and look forward to collaborating with them, ultimately to the benefit of their clients.
