David Cooney


When he got his start in the life insurance industry in 1986, David began with a clear goal in mind: to give exceptional insurance advice. "I never wanted to be the biggest firm," he explains. "I've always just wanted to help people plan their lives."

For the past 30 years (and counting), he's done precisely that. And since then he has firmly established himself in the industry, becoming an Authorised Financial Advisor (AFA) and a NZ Financial Advisers Association (NZFAA) member. He also meets regularly with industry peers to share ideas and develop professionally.

For David, insurance isn't about numbers or policies—it's about people. "The thing that I enjoy most about my role as an adviser? Meeting new people, learning about their families and businesses, and helping them plan for their future."
