About us

The Chris MacKay Financial Planning Group, trading as MacKay Financial Advice & Solutions (MFAS), sets out to attain the highest possible standards of service. Four of MacKay Financial Advice & Solutions’ advisers are Authorised Financial Advisers (AFAs).

The Group also actively encourages the advice and input, if appropriate, of other professional advisers such as lawyers and accountants to ensure that all aspects of clients’ financial affairs are duly considered during the planning stage.

MFAS make every effort to keep in regular contact with clients and ensure that they have the opportunity to be kept up to date on any financial matters which might affect them. Regular newsletters, “MacKay on Money” are also available to clients. A special investment update “MacKay on Money” is usually emailed to Booster, Select Wealth Management and KiwiSaver clients monthly.

All in all, it reflects the MFAS desire to provide regular contact and review.

In 1999 MFAS started offering a state of the art investment system with research and due diligence provided by Grosvenor Financial Services Group (now named Booster). In addition, MFAS has established relationships with AMP, ANZ, Select Wealth Management and Synergy Investments to allow clients access to various investment systems helping them achieve their investment goals in a tax and cost efficient way. The various systems create simplicity yet have the complexity of providing sophisticated, state of the art systems for managing and maximising investment returns. They allow retail investors the systems, flexibility and purchasing power usually only available to very large investors or funds.
