ALEX TALOPA'U

Financial Adviser

I began my journey in the financial services sector over 25 years ago. Initially working for a number of Chartered Accountancy firms both in Samoa (my home country) and New Zealand before setting up my own Accountancy firm in Auckland. My experience also includes working in the Private sector, Banking industry, Central Bank and an Offshore Financial Institution.

 

In 2011 I became an Authorised Financial Adviser and currently operating as a Financial Advisor and chose to specialise in the areas of KiwiSaver and Insurance, both personal and business.  
 

After falling in love with Mount Maunganui I made the decision to sell my business and move my family to Tauranga where I continue to operate as an Insurance and Kiwisaver Adviser. As a Samoan, my focus is on helping my people, the Pacific community, achieve financial success and I am known to my clients as the Pasifika Adviser for Pasifika People. 
 

As a homeowner, business owner, Accountant and Financial Adviser, I want to show my people, community and clients how they can be financially sorted.  My philosophy is to keep things simple, and I pride myself on being able to provide advice to my clients in terms they can easily understand, without all the overwhelming financial jargon!
 

Outside of work you will find me spending time with my wonderful family and focusing on my health and wellbeing. If you’re an early riser you may see me start my day with a walk to the top of beautiful Mount Maunganui to see the sunrise!
