The Nido Difference
Because no life or business is the same, at Nido we live to do things little differently. From work to play our focus is on enabling you, your family or your business to be in the moment by having us protect what matters most now and into the future.
We’ll help set the plan and path to support you, your family or your business without concern for things like accident or illness.
At Nido, we believe that personal and financial wellbeing go hand-in-hand, and that good wealth is nothing without good health. We’re passionate about the role of personal wellbeing in all areas of life, including business. As a qualified yoga teacher and former New Zealand representative football player, Nido’s Founder and Director, Onny, has introduced unique strategies and ways of working to help you get the most out of work, play and everything in between.
Combined with proven entrepreneurial expertise, growing successful businesses and building purpose-driven teams – Nido offers a unique approach that clients love. As New Zealand’s 2017 Insurance Adviser of the Year – our clients get us, because we take the time to get them – partnering with our people and building real relationships that help them succeed in all aspects of life.
Welcome to Nido. Discover the difference.
Onny – Director/Adviser
Nido was created out of my passion for two things: Taking care of the family (wife Amelia, and kids Rio (17), Jamie (15) and Flora (11), and looking after myself, on the yoga mat. My passion for these things outside of work has driven the philosophy and agenda for what I do inside Nido.
I studied Economics in the States, and from my time abroad, developed an appreciation for planning for and protecting the things that matter – two imperatives I believe help one to get on and enjoy life. When I returned to NZ, I established my own hospitality company, and launched 4:20, Auckland’s first nightspot dedicated to hip-hop. After eight years at the helm of this exciting small business, I shifted my focus onto helping the entrepreneurial endeavours of others, with a move into insurance. Fast-forward thirteen years to the present moment, and today I continue my pursuit offering businesses and families across the country with expert insurance advice, and I love it! I understand small businesses, and when it comes to the home I know what matters most: the family.
Outside of Nido, you’ll find me teaching and practising yoga at Sweat yoga in Newmarket, playing soccer (in a former life for NZ in U17 and U20’s) and taking time out to coach kids. I also enjoy movies, music and a great book.
