Well-known television broadcaster Richard Long is the new face of Elders Finance, one of New Zealand’s largest and most profitable finance companies.

Richard provides a familiar face for investors in the new Elders Finance nationwide print and television advertising campaign ‘Murray’s Morrie’, which tells the story of a retired couple who on their wedding day were given a brand new Morris Minor which is still going strong today. Richard narrates the television commercial and is the ‘face’ of the print advertisements.

“Richard has always been seen by the public as a credible source of information. As a trusted broadcaster he resonates with our investors and the wider New Zealand market.”

“New Zealanders have a strong affinity with Richard’s personality. The Elders Finance brand has strong history and family ties and Richard is the personification of those values.”
