Protecting and helping families since 1985
I promise to find you the best insurance products available – and I won’t be beaten on price!
If you already have a written insurance quote for Life Insurance, Trauma Insurance, Health Insurance, Mortgage Protection or Income Protection Insurance ..I will beat it for you.
If you are serious about saving money on insurance, or getting the best value please call me on 0800 ACORNLIFE, or use the enquiry form below.
I’ve been a Financial Adviser for 36 years and have access to most of the insurance companies and many of the investment companies in New Zealand. But it’s important to note, I don’t work for them – I work for you.
I value my reputation as a Financial Adviser and this means all the insurance solutions I present to you will be in your best interests.
I also recognise that most insurance solutions are a compromise between price and benefits.
So, I won’t be trying to sell you more insurance than you want, need or can afford.
Now, price is important, as Acorn was built on price… but it is maintained on service. So please check out the testimonials page and see what some of our clients are saying about us.

“My partner and I have used Acorn Insurance for the last four years. We have both found the service we receive to be second to none and we feel we receive comprehensive advice and full disclosure.”
“Mike was the first Insurance Adviser to take the time to explain the insurance options in a way that I could easily understand. So I bought some insurance from him and he saved me heaps on my premium.”
“I called on Mike to get a better deal on my insurance, both in cover and for a lower cost. Over the past 8 years he has answered all my enquiries promptly, without bias, and in my best interest. I highly recommend Mike as he gives a great service”
