Plus4’s Chairman Grant Uridge said, “Steve and Grant are experienced and highly regarded Southland advisers. They have established a successful business, predominantly serving the needs of the rural sector, 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 Grant and Steve to Plus4.”
