About Us

Carricks - Operating for over 30 years

Locally owned and operated, Carricks has been running in the Waikato for over 30 years. With a team built on the foundation of family, we now have 2 generations of professional advisors and 3rd generation clients. Here at Carricks it's all about family, it's all about helping you sing in the rain. It's about ensuring when times are tough or issues arise that you are properly covered.

Carricks was started by Paul with the belief he could make a difference in the lives of others. Helping people manage their money and themselves because if people can do this, it makes them feel better and this impacts their life in general. Families don’t often talk about money, life insurance, death, disability, values and more but not having money at the right time, can severely impact decisions that are made and how life progresses.

There is a difference between advice obtained via an “insurance salesperson” vs advice from Carricks. Our roles often falls more as both life and financial coach, with wide-ranging discussions had bringing required outcomes about. Ultimately, we stand behind our advice, doing the right thing for our client's long term. We have conversations that are backed by knowledge from many many years of experience and understanding.

Our Family

Packed with experience the Carricks family is one of the best. A mix of certified financial advisors and other key staff, we are all consistently strengthening skills and knowledge for our clients benefit.

Carricks - Your financial partner for life

People often think issues are linear and straight where in fact invariably they are non-linear with an array of different options. So we work tirelessly to assist in choosing the right direction. Helping clients be ok with where they are at in life... Sometimes creating wealth and sometimes spending wealth but ultimately, it's about having a financial partner for life.

Carricks – our own family name as well as business name means we can’t hide behind a brand and with Nick now following in dads footsteps, Carricks is not going anywhere. We take interest in our clients lives and have the broader conversations that often lead to wider reaching results. We are proud of what we offer and the difference we have made and continue to make.

The best thing about Carricks is that you get to talk to the same people, and not get lost in amongst a call centre. Our clients are an important part of our family and are treated as such. We are just a phone call away for all your financial needs. Here at Carricks we offer a range of covers from a range of providers with the sole aim to keep you and your family covered, protected and happy.


Our mission is to offer trusted advice you can depend on, and deliver lasting solutions that work. We work alongside those who value advice and are wanting enduring relationships for their financial and insurance needs.
