While Hamish continues to deny his advancing years, it is indisputable that he commenced his financial planning career as long ago as 1992 with IPD Securities Ltd, the breeding ground for many of today’s investment advisers. Following IPD’s purchase by Prudential at the end of 1993, Hamish moved to Medical Assurance Society and established his connection with (and enjoyment of) the medical fraternity.
In 2001 Hamish formed Medical Financial Advisory Services Ltd (MFAS) and was delighted to welcome Sue Stewart as a business partner in 2002.
Previous to all this, Hamish worked as a solicitor with NZ Guardian Trust and then Simpson Grierson until overcome by the rigors of completing the six minute time sheets. Hamish retains a keen interest in estate and trust law.
After more than 20 years as a financial adviser, understanding client requirements and the interaction with investment markets has been a critical skill. Hamish follows the philosophy, inured through hard experience, that investment strategies which protect against loss are critical for sustainable financial wealth.
Beyond work Hamish participates in numerous sporting activities, voracious reading and the constant pursuit of clutter free sandy beaches to lie upon.
