David once broke his collarbone playing rugby when he was a teenager – like a true Kiwi. A little later in life he worked as the director of a marine engineering contact firm, keeping large ships (like RNZNavy) in top shape. Now, he does the same for investment portfolios. He holds qualifications in law, is a Foundation NZX Adviser and a member of the Macquarie NZ Investment Committee. He’s worked in the securities industry for 36 years, and during that time has worked for a number of listed companies and global banking operations – including Citibank, Mair Astley and Banque Indosuez. His stockbroking career spans 24 years, including 15 years with Macquarie. At Hobson Wealth Partners, David works with a variety of clients – including charitable organisations, family trusts and individual investors – to build strong portfolios, bringing specialist expertise in equities and debt securities.
