I've been in the insurance industry for over a decade. I'm absolutely passionate about the benefits of having life insurance.

As a father and a husband I get why family and loved ones need to be protected financially. If the breadwinner dies – life insurance is a life line for the family left behind. I've helped more than 8,000 kiwis prepare for the future. As a broker I work for you, not the insurance companies, so I can get the best insurance for your needs.

An adviser disclosure statement is available free and upon request. You can contact me or my team at any time on 09 361 5618.

Paul is the newest member of our team having just immigrated from the UK. Paul and his partner Michaela love to travel and meet new people, and after one visit to New Zealand, they decided to start the next chapter in their life here.

Paul and our founder Michael have known each other since they were lads back in the UK, and with over 10-years experience of running his own successful business and a highly driven team in the UK, Paul was ready for a new challenge. His strong passion and desire to help others makes him a welcome addition to the team, Paul is constantly wanting to develop and better his skill-set and at present is doing a degree in Business Studies here in Auckland. Family values are the critical focus in Paul's life, and having recently been through the loss of his father and grandfather, he has an in-depth understanding of the importance of planning for unforeseen events and securing the future for family and loved ones.

Barry has 31 years’ experience in the Insurance Industry and we have worked with Barry over the last 7 years in his previous role as Managing Director of Independent Development Solutions Ltd, for compliance support, which we found invaluable.

I think the insurance industry is due for a step change, clients’ needs are changing and how they utilise advice and insurance solutions will change as tech becomes more of a factor in the customer experience. But at the heart of our business is the ability to help clients with their insurance needs to protect their families and businesses.

At Evergreen we think that consultative ethical selling of insurance is a great service for New Zealanders.

Barry is happily married to Karen and has two sons who keep him busy in the weekend with sport and other family activities. He loves rugby, cars and is known to play the odd game of golf and cricket.

Caring for our kids

As a Dad, I’m absolutely passionate about Cure Kids. The work they do is phenomenal. Its vision is a healthy childhood for everyone. To make this happen they focus on raising funds for medical research to find cures for kids.

They fund research into childhood cancers, inherited heart conditions, cystic fibrosis, sudden unexpected death in infants (SUDI), stillbirth, burns, and child and adolescent mental health – to name a few.

Cure Kids are the largest funder of child health research outside the government. They support the best science possible to make a difference to the health and well-being of children in New Zealand.

As an associate partner - I’m proud to be able to help them do their incredible work.

Caring for our pets

As an advocate of both charity and community, I am a big supporter of Paw Justice and animal welfare through community support.

Paw Justice was formed in 2009 to help deal with the problem of animal abuse and neglect against pets in New Zealand. Such abuse has grown at alarming rates, both in frequency and severity

Paw Justice work with the Community to raise awareness about animal abuse. They act as advocates in the community for those animals and promote education and public awareness to bring about social change.

Paw Justice is supporting the many animals that need our help and I am proud to give Paw Justice my support.


Life Insurance Life Insurance

Life insurance provides a financial safety net for your family if you die. At Evergreen it's our business to ensure you're looked after at claim time. That's why we make sure you get the right amount of life cover that buys you and your family time when it really matters.

When you're deciding your level of cover, consider:

  • Debts
  • Ongoing education requirements for children
  • A cash buffer for your partner to adjust to life without you (this takes time)

You may also want to consider leaving funds for your partner's retirement.

Income Protection Income Protection

Income protection insurance gives you a steady stream of income if you're unable to work for an extended period of time.

Unlike ACC it covers non-accidental reasons for being off work, such as stress, which is the biggest cause of people needing time off work.

We can help you choose the best option for your circumstances.

Medical Insurance Medical Insurance

According to an international survey of GPs, New Zealand has the highest proportion of patients facing long delays for elective surgery or hospital care.

Save yourself months on the public health waiting list and get yourself back to work sooner.

Medical insurance gives you quick, affordable access to hospital, surgical, specialist consultations and tests.

Mortgage Protection Mortgage Protection

Mortgage protection is a combination of many insurance products, like Life Insurance, Trauma Cover, Total and Permanent Disability Cover, and Income Protection.

You can also get standalone mortgage repayment cover, which pays your regular mortgage payments if you're unable to work because of sickness or injury. There's an initial stand down period of at least 4 weeks before the payments start.

Mortgage protection is very similar to other standard insurance policies, but because it's specifically to cover a fixed amount (the amount of your mortgage), there's less flexibility.

The price for mortgage protection insurance is usually similar to standard insurance policies. It's best to talk through your options with us to find what's best for you.

How much cover do I need?

Mortgage protection cover reflects the amount of your mortgage debt, or the monthly repayments you need to make. In short, it depends. No two situations are the same.

Trauma Cover Trauma Cover

Trauma cover provides a lump sum of money to help you pay for expenses in the event you or a loved one has a serious accident or become critically ill.

Unlike income protection, trauma cover doesn't depend on whether you can work or not. To qualify you simply have to survive 14 days after suffering a major illness like heart attack, stroke or cancer.

This kind of insurance is also known as Living Assurance, Critical Illness Cover or Serious Care.

We can help you choose the best option for your circumstances.

Total Disablement Total Disablement

Total and permanent disability insurance is cover that ensures you have access to an income in the event you have a serious accident, illness, injury, or suffer from mental illness – and can no longer work.

As it's not a common claim, premiums are comparatively low.

Business Insurance Business Insurance

If you want your business to survive the loss of someone critical to its success – due to illness or injury – it’s important to plan for it.

We can help you tailor an insurance plan that protects financial position of your business should something unexpected happen.

Shareholder protection

Shareholder protection enables shareholders to buy out a business partner or their estate, in the event they need to sell their shares in the company due to serious illness, injury or death.

When you have shareholder protection cover, you’ll also need a buy/sell agreement. You can discuss a buy/sell agreement with your lawyer.

We can also provide Debt Protection Cover for shareholders to repay debts and other liabilities at the same time.

Key Man Cover

Key man cover allows your business to keep rolling when you lose someone that has a big impact on revenue.

Key person cover injects cash into the business to cover operational costs.

With key person cover, you need to consider the all the costs associated with your key person from operational to recruitment.
