Plus4 Insurance Solutions Establishes Presence in Dunedin with Appointment of Two Experienced Advisers – Tim Oliver & Tony Chave
Plus4 Insurance Solutions (Plus4), the national insurance broking and financial adviser group, today announced that two Dunedin-based advisers; Tony Chave and Tim Oliver have joined Plus4, establishing the group’s presence in Otago.
Tim Oliver and Tony Chave are experienced insurance brokers and financial advisers serving the rural sector, SMEs, families and high-net-worth individuals throughout the Otago region.
Tony Chave is an Authorised Financial Adviser (AFA) and director of Tony Chave Financial Services. He has over 30 years experience in the financial services sector having worked for AMP before establishing his own advisory business earlier this year. Tony is a member of the Institute of Financial Advisers (IFA) and has had a lifetime involvement with Otago rugby. He’s played premier rugby, was a director of the Otago Rugby Football Union (ORFU) for eight years and is a past president of ORFU, and a past president of Kaikorai Rugby Football Club where he is currently treasurer, and has a long association with Dunedin’s Sassenach Rugby Football Club. Tony is also an avid cricket follower.
Tim Oliver is also an AFA and has been working as a financial planner in Dunedin for the past eight years, after living and working in South Africa and Australia. He has a BComm. in marketing and management from the University of Otago and subsequently spent three years working in Sydney in the superannuation and banking industries. He established his own business, Oliver Financial Planning in 2013 and is a member of the Professional Advisers Association (PAA).
Plus4’s Chairman Grant Uridge said, “Tim and Tony are experienced and highly regarded Otago advisers. They have each established their own successful individual businesses, 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 Tim and Tony to Plus4.”
Established in 2008 in Nelson, Plus4 now has over 30 advisers working from 12 locations between Whangarei and Invercargill. Group members, who have no affiliations to any specific insurance provider, offer unbiased advice tailored to their individual and business clients’ requirements.
They work predominantly with small to medium sized enterprises, their owners and their accountants.
