At the start of your adult life, the first thing you do is get a job. This provides you with an income.1/11
Once you are earning, you’ll start spending your money. Some of this goes on regular expenses, rent, bills etc.2/11
You start buying your first assets, like a car and other chattels.3/11
At the same time, you begin putting away some of your income as savings for the future.4/11
You invest these savings in things like your bank and KiwiSaver.5/11
As time goes on, you climb your career ladder. You gain experience and wealth and perhaps decide it’s time to start your own business. This business provides your income and increases in value over time. This in turn adds to your Assets...6/11
Your lifestyle assets grow; perhaps you buy a house, a boat, and a bach.7/11
Your investment assets also grow; perhaps you buy an investment property and bump up your other investments.8/11
As time continues, your priorities change, and you start thinking more about retirement. In this process you decide to sell your business. Together with your savings you now have a saving portfolio.9/11
Now you are ready for retirement. At this stage your normal income disappears.10/11
In retirement ideally your income now comes from your investment assets. To bump up your investment assets, you can liquidate some of the lifestyle assets you no longer need. The rest of your lifestyle assets can become what you pass on as inheritance.11/11

Greg is the founding Director of FPNZ, and was responsible for the company’s creation.
After graduating as an accountant in 1975, Greg was employed in a number of accountancy related roles before joining the NZ Police in 1980. Whilst there, he studied Law at Auckland University. He left the Police in 1984 to teach accounting at the University of Auckland and to complete his law degree. In 1986, Greg joined the Department of Justice as a Senior Investigating Accountant in the Corporate Fraud Unit.
He joined IPD Securities in 1987 as a senior financial planner and over the next five years, became that company’s most successful adviser. After being named ‘Financial Planner of the Year’ in 1992, Greg left IPD Securities to fulfil a long cherished goal of establishing his own practice – New Zealand Financial Planning. Greg founded NZFP which eventually became a National Company. In 2014 Greg decided to exit NZFP to concentrate on his Auckland-based practice and in doing so rebranded his business as Financial Planning New Zealand Ltd (FPNZ).
Greg has taught accounting at the University of Auckland and Unitec from 1984 to 2012. Greg is a member of the Institute of Financial Advisers (IFA) and is both a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and a Certified Life Underwriter (CLU). He is an expert witness for both court and disciplinary matters relating to the giving of financial advice.
Greg has and continues to undertake a myriad of charity and community work. He is a Past President of the Rotary Club of Downtown Auckland (2004/2005), former Chair of the Western Bays Community Board (1989-91) and Past President of the Mt Albert Grammar School Old Boys Association. He retired as a Major in the 3rd Auckland (Countess of Ranfurly’s own) and Northland Battalion of the NZ Army. During his 37 years’ service he has been awarded the Efficiency Decoration (ED), bar and clasp and has deployed to the Solomon Islands (2005) and East Timor (2006), as well as an attachment with the British Army in 1983. He was a Trustee of the Leukaemia and Blood Cancer for 20 years and a Director of Radio Lollipop for 10 years.
Greg is still active in Rotary and was selected to lead the Rotary District 9920 GSE Team to Chile in 2009. He was an Assistant Governor of D9920 between 2012-2014 and Chair of the Mt Albert Grammar School Board of Trustees.
He was also an Auckland City Councillor, representing the inner city Western Bays Ward and was Chairman of the Auckland City Arts, Culture and Recreation Committee prior to the amalgamation of the Auckland City Council. He is a former member of and Finance spokesperson for the Waitemata Local Board.
After many years in the financial planning industry, Greg still enjoys helping people to help themselves and is a firm believer in New Zealander’s need to plan to ensure their future financial wellbeing. Greg believes he can provide this security to his clients by assisting them to adopt a sane, sound, sensible approach to the creation and protection of wealth.

Ryan has already worked in finance and business, with over five years of experience in client care and management.
Prior to joining Financial Planning NZ Ltd, now known as OnePlan, Ryan was a Registered Financial Adviser for Momentum Life Ltd. This role was a unique opportunity that provided valuable insight into the backend processes of the insurance sector and highlighted key considerations when providing a comprehensive financial plan.
Before his time with Momentum Life, Ryan consulted retirees throughout New Zealand on solutions to their concerns about diminishing mobility. At this stage, Ryan was in his early twenties, so seeing the realities of aging first-hand was a humbling and eye-opening experience that gave him a deeper understanding of the underlining drivers of the human condition when faced with insurmountable odds. An interesting outcome of his consultancy process was that when clients were asked what mattered most in life their answers, although unique, would usually fit into four key areas:
-Independence: being able to do what you want when you want.
-Connection: spending time with the people who matter most.
-Purpose: feeling that you’re contributing to the world in a meaningful way.
-Health: physical and mental well-being are they key foundations to a fulfilling life.
Ryan’s first position in consultative selling was working as a commission-only seller for one of the world leaders in face-to-face marketing. In this organisation he was quickly promoted to a leadership position where he provided education and direction to a sales team of more than 15. During this time Ryan completed a Diploma in Events Management, Cert IV in Business Management and Cert III in Business from One Step Further, The International Institute of Excellence.
From his varied experiences with individuals from all walks of life Ryan came to the realisation that the difference between thriving or surviving in retirement was the underlining framework of a rigid financial plan.
So now, having completed his studies in finance, since becoming an Authorised Financial Adviser and teaming up with a Financial Planner with experience spanning over 30 years (Greg Moyle), Ryan feels it’s time to utilise his combined skills to help his clients shape the retirement of their choice.
"Our retirement plan gave us confidence to spend without fear of running out of money."
"Our kids no longer worry that we will be a burden on them during our retirement."
"Prior to taking advice I worried about the future. Now I enjoy the here and now, secure in the knowledge that I have more than enough money to go the distance."
"It is hard to put a price on knowing that we are, and will continue to be, financially secure."
When it comes to saving for your retirement, finding the right person to help you with your plans can make all the difference. It’s a big responsibility – after all, your future lifestyle depends on it. So how do you choose a financial planner who will help you achieve the best results? Here’s what to look for.
Generally, as adults, our 40-odd years of working life is undertaken with three main goals: to buy our own home, to raise our family, and to grow our wealth in preparation for retirement. Nobody wants to walk out of the office on their last day without finally reaping the benefits of all that hard work.
