About Us

BWT Financial is a locally owned firm of wealth managers based in Rotorua.

Making a decision about who to trust to help you achieve your financial goals is one of the most important you will ever make. We take the time get to know you and allow you time to get to know us. We will ensure you understand what options are available to you; for some investing is brand new, for others it is not.

Whatever your experience with the markets, we make sense of investing. Holistic financial advice is all about understanding the big picture and not just looking at something in isolation. In order to give you the best advice, we need to learn about your goals, your family, your hopes and wants.
