Educated at St Kentigern College, Rod has lived and worked all his life in Auckland. He began his career as an adviser with Norwich Union and subsequently worked with a nationwide advisory network. In 2000, he achieved his goal of starting his own firm when he established Brackenridge Financial Solutions in the heart of Auckland’s Herne Bay.
Rod works with a diverse range of clients, mostly business owners and individuals, and his firm has experienced considerable growth over recent years.
He has joined the Plus4 Insurance group in order to enhance his firm’s offering by gaining access to its systems, as well as to benefit from being part of a group of like-minded professional advisers. Rod is also a member of Financial Advice New Zealand.
Rod’s focus in finding the right mix of insurance, debt reduction and investment options for individuals and businesses. He describes his role as being to help people make smart decisions about their financial planning – to manage the risks they face and their financial resources – in a way that adds value and best meets their needs.
Rod is father to three children; he has a teenage boy and girl who have both recently started work and a daughter who is still at primary school. Consequently, until recently Rod and his partner Bhanu, when not focused on their business interests, have been preoccupied with family life.
When time permits, they enjoy going out to a movie, walking and swimming, and socialising with friends and family.
Rod has a longstanding interest in motor racing, enjoys cooking, watching rugby and rugby league and, should an Auckland team win, having a quiet celebration with friends after a game.
