Why you need professional advice

It can be hard to identify the insurance you need for your family or business, without actually talking to an experienced insurance adviser.  

Our advisers are dedicated to understanding your individual needs and building a lifetime relationship with you, your family (and/or) business partners. We value the human touch – we want to understand what you do and how we can help.

We offer free professional advice to you.  When you start a policy, we receive a payment for our advice from the insurer that you choose.  We are here to answer any questions you may have about our advice process, and our disclosure statements are available under each adviser.

We will help you to make a well-informed decision and will help you if you need to claim or if your circumstances change. 

Most personal insurance claims arise when a person is facing illness, death in the family or injury.  In situations like this, having us manage the claim process with the insurance company is extremely valuable. 

Our Journey

Network Financial Services was founded by Eugene in 2012 initially working by himself. Over the years the business has grown to a point where he was able to involve both his wife and his son, to create a truly family business. This sense of family is what we bring to our clients, we are there to help our clients choose the right insurance products and really be there for them when they need it most.Eugene has over 25 years experience in the insurance industry both here in New Zealand and in South Africa.

Out of his need to help others, Eugene also started the New Immigrants Network. Having gone through the process of immigrating to New Zealand, he knew how hard it was for new people to settle in their new adopted home. This network has grown across the country where like-minded people work together to help new immigrants settle into New Zealand.
