  1. Brad Johnstone - Registered Financial Adviser
    Brad Johnston
    Registered Financial Adviser I began my working life as a boat builder due to being a competitive sailor. After a year of working with fiberglass and the occupational discomfort I decided I needed a change and this was as an embalmer at a funeral home. Although the working environment was “different” it soon became a passion. However after 10 years, becoming an insurance adviser and joining the family business was a new challenge I needed. I enjoy meeting new people and hearing about their lives. The best thing about being someone’s insurance adviser is that I provide a personal link for them dealing with big corporate insurance companies. Outside of my work, I enjoy game fishing, boating and spending time with my fiancee, Jessica.

    Registered Financial Adviser I started my career with an interest in social work and enjoy working with people, which makes for a comfortable fit with the insurance industry. People need to have a safety net around them financially and when I set this up nothing makes me happier than seeing a claim paid to one of my clients. Outside of my business, I enjoy riding my horse, boating, fishing and New Zealand history/archaeology.
