A bit about us…

Chris MacKay Financial Planning, trading as MacKay Financial Advice & Solutions (MFAS), traces its roots back to 1976.

Back then, fresh out of Victoria University with a Commerce degree majoring in Tax, Trusts and Estate Planning, Chris MacKay signed a ‘letter of appointment’ with the National Mutual Life Association of Australasia Ltd, at the time one of New Zealand’s market leading insurance companies and superannuation providers.

There have been many changes in financial services over the past four
decades, but the team at MFAS have embraced the prophetic words of Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher who lived some 2,500 years ago: “There is nothing permanent except change.”

Back in the late ‘70s, we only dealt with one financial product provider. Now, as you can see on our disclosure information, we have arrangements with a multitude of leading fund managers, KiwiSaver providers, home loan lenders and insurance companies allowing us to provide a range of financial solutions for our clients.

Our mission statement sums up nicely what we do:

“We provide financial advice to families and business owners, and assist them in building and protecting their wealth. Our advice includes financial solutions which enable our clients to enjoy in retirement, the fruits of their hard work.”
