Brett Flintoff


Founding partner, now working three days a week as a form of early semi-retirement.  Brett has many years of experience in tax and accounting.  He has lectured on both subjects at SIT and for many years wrote regular columns in the Southland Times on a variety of subjects. Brett currently sits on the national board of the NZ Automobile Association.


Some of Brett’s guiding lights for life and finance:

  • Simple wears better than complicated in the long run.
  • Get the big decisions in life right because it’s a lot easier swimming with the tide than against it.
  • Get the little decisions right because there are a lot of them and they add up.
  • Never forget that “right” is a relative term – your decisions don’t have to be perfect, good will do fine.
  • Trust is the currency that never devalues.
