Our family protecting your family – that’s been our reason for being since Ron Gadsdon opened our doors in 2008. Fast forward to today - we’re a family of financial advice experts, focused on helping people in our community protect what matters and build strong financial futures.

With over 35 years’ experience in corporate insurance, in 2009 Ron decided it was time to take his knowledge and expertise, and create a financial advice business, focused on helping New Zealand families protect against the ‘what-ifs’ in life.

Since then, Discovery Financial Services has been entrusted with the insurance – and latterly, KiwiSaver – needs of over 4,000 clients.

Today, the whole Gadsdon family - Ron, Karen, Shane and Jason - complemented by the talented Bradley Whitfield – are Discovery Financial Services. And we are, simply put, committed to the good old fashioned value of putting people first. Read more about the Discovery Financial Services team here.
