Rupert’s sailed his way across both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans – in a hand-steered boat. He’s completed the K2 Road Cycle Classic (the toughest one-day cycle race in the Southern hemisphere) twice and the Lake Taupo Cycle race four times so far. When his feet are on the ground, he calls Kumeu home. Although with a lifestyle block, 3 acres of lawns to mow, pip fruit orchards to tend, and a fold of Highland cattle, he’s rarely sitting still there either. Rupert made his way to New Zealand in 1993 and joined Macquarie Private Wealth in 2010, bringing all 25 years of his investment experience with him. He’s been a member of the Securities Industry Association Debt Advisory Board, where he contributed to the NZX debt trading rules and conventions. You might have seen him as a live presenter on 3 News, One News and Radiolive, or sharing his business and economic expertise as a guest on TVNZ’s Business Breakfast. Today, he’s a member of Hobson Wealth’s Investment Committee, and offers expert advice to all types of clients at Hobson Wealth – from sophisticated market traders to family trusts and first time investors. He specialises in managing complex Margin Lending Accounts and Equity and Fixed Interest portfolios. So whether you’re looking to start your investment journey, diversify your portfolio or take a risk, Rupert can help you land in the best place.
