“You get more than you bargained for from James with his diverse background and knowledge.”

James Jenkin

Insurance adviser, accountant, guitarist, DJ, father and surfer - James wins the award for being our most diverse team member. We think this makes him fun, interesting and very knowledgeable.

James has worked for some of New Zealand’s leading companies: Air New Zealand, KPMG and Zespri. We're honoured that he has chosen Financial Independence as his workplace.

James has 12 years of experience as a Business Analyst and Commercial Manager meaning he understands the ins and outs of your business and the risks that may be there.

Thorough analysis is one of his biggest assets. He concentrates on the details and clearly explains the information you need to know. Being from an accounting background, he's always looking to reduce unnecessary expense, and his insurance solutions reflect this.

Although business is second nature to James, he is also a family man with young children. He knows how important it is to get the right cover.
