Paul Carrick

Paul Carrick – Owner

"Smart planning and the right action means one thing… financial freedom"

Paul loves to help people to be better sorted financially, meaning they can live life more fully. He enjoys ongoing learning and improvement and has a philosophy that every day is a day to make something happen.

He has a broad range of interests around business and people, and gets a thrill when the plans that people put in place many years ago turn to reality, and can feel that he has helped them achieve those goals.

Over the years Paul has completed two Business Diplomas and is a Certified Financial Planner Professional and Chartered Life UnderwriterCM. He is also an Authorised Financial Adviser, which allows him to provide a broad range of insurance and investment advice. Paul has held directorship and management roles in a number of advisory businesses.

Paul can be a bit of a perfectionist and, according to Sally, is always right (much to her dismay). He loves spending his spare time with family, and also enjoys cycling and fixing things that are broken.

Nick Carrick

Nick Carrick – Financial Advisor QFE

"Nick is a financial wizard"

Nick joined the Carricks team in February 2018. After spending his early out of school years playing his hand at different types of Agricultural work, and later becoming a Foreman for different Landscaping and Machinery operating companies, Nick has come onboard to help younger generations through their Financial Journeys.

A KiwiSaver Guru, Nick is helping folk understand the importance of KiwiSaver for buying their first home, and then retirement.

Through this he informs and educates the importance of Insurance, and getting some covers in place early on to ensure you have a great base platform to work off, and then adding covers as needed throughout the span of your Lifetime.

Another area that Nick is having great success in is being able to help you with budgeting and money management. If you have a financial goal in mind and are unsure how to get there, Nick is the man to talk to.

When he's not at work, Nick can usually be found at Cambridge Fitness weight Training, or working on (and being frustrated by) his Holden Commodore or his boat. He also enjoys getting outdoors for a hunt, fish or dive, and cooking with the produce he can gather (if he's lucky)!
