Richard Hurley joins Plus4 Insurance Group

Experienced Auckland Adviser Richard Hurley joins Plus4 Insurance Group

Plus4 Insurance Solutions (Plus4), the national insurance broking and financial adviser group, today announced that Auckland-based adviser Richard Hurley has joined Plus4, extending the group’s presence in Auckland.

An Authorised Financial Adviser (AFA), Richard is the principal of Auckland City Brokers Ltd which he established in 1999. Richard began his financial services career in 1986 as a superannuation consultant with MFL Mutual Funds, now managed by ANZ Investments and became their top salesperson nationwide within two years. He left MFL in 1995 to work as an independent adviser and eventually established Auckland City Brokers which specialises in personal and business insurance, estate planning and investment advice for small and medium sized businesses, families and high-net-worth individuals.

Prior to entering the financial services sector, Richard was an RNZAF Squadron Leader, an Air Traffic Controller and past chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Airways Superannuation Scheme. He is a member of the Institute of Financial Advisers (IFA).

Plus4’s Chairman Grant Uridge said, “Richard is an experienced and highly regarded Auckland adviser. He has established a successful business, predominantly serving the needs of businesses and families. Given that Plus4 is a cooperative, the only specialist insurance and financial broking firm who is a member of the NZ Cooperatives Association, we are very selective about whom we ask to join our group. Our members need to not only have the necessary experience and expertise but also share our values, as each member has an equal shareholding. We are pleased to welcome Richard to Plus4.”

Established in 2008 in Nelson, Plus4 now has over 30 advisers working from 12 locations between Whangarei and Invercargill. Group members, who have no affiliations to any specific insurance provider, offer unbiased advice tailored to their individual and business clients’ requirements.
They work predominantly with small to medium sized enterprises, their owners and their accountants.

Richard Hurley said, “Joining Plus4 will enhance our offering by providing access to Plus4’s systems and processes, as well as the benefit of being part of a group of like-minded professionals.”
