National insurance advisory and financial services group Plus4 Insurance Solutions has today announced that Hawkes Bay adviser Brad MacDonald has joined the group.

MacDonald has seven years experience in the financial services sector and is a Hawkes Bay local where he was a foundation student, head boy, and captain of the 1st XI cricket team at Flaxmere College.

After leaving school he moved to Auckland and joined the Royal New Zealand Navy as a weapons technician and met his wife, Yvette. Having started a family they elected to move back to Hawkes Bay where he worked in several sales and account management roles before beginning his financial services career with a well-known Hawkes Bay financial planning practice in 2014.

In 2018, he joined Gary Hemmings and established Common Sense Financial Planning.

As a financial adviser and an Accredited Investment Fiduciary, MacDonald provides financial advice including KiwiSaver, investment and retirement planning, and personal insurance.

MacDonald works with a diverse range of clients including business owners, families, farmers and medical professionals in New Zealand and Australia, Singapore and Japan.

Plus4’s group general manager Peter Standish says MacDonald is an experienced and highly regarded financial services professional who has established a successful practice in the Hawkes Bay.

“Given that Plus4 is a cooperative, the only specialist insurance and financial broking firm that is a member of the NZ Cooperatives Association, we are very selective about whom we ask to join our group,” Standish says.

“Our members need to not only have the necessary experience and expertise but also share our values. We are pleased to welcome Brad to Plus4.”

Established in Nelson in 2008, Plus4 now has 46 advisers working from 16 locations between Whangarei and Invercargill.

Group members have no affiliations to any specific insurance provider and offer unbiased advice tailored to individual and business clients requirements.

They work predominantly with small to medium-sized enterprises, their owners, and their accountants.
