  • It is our intention that we earn the right to look after you for as long as we are involved in helping you have a better life
  • It is our intention that we let you know when you are doing things well.
  • It is our intention that we will be helping people a long time yet...
Our request is that you as the client do the following:
  • Be open to our recommendations and discussions
  • Be available for reviews
  • Approach Carricks first when you have a problem where you think we can assist

The annual re-weighting of the Trade-Weighted Index (TWI) takes effect on Wednesday 16 November 2016.

The TWI is a measure of the value of the New Zealand dollar relative to the currencies of New Zealand’s major trading partners. There are 17 currencies included in the TWI and each currency is weighted using the country’s bilateral trade with New Zealand.

The interesting thing is the reduction of our traditional business partners and increasing importance of the countries that you  may not have even wondered about
