Happy 6th Birthday to DUX Financial Services

Today is the 6th birthday of DUX Financial.  It’s crazy to think it’s been 6 years, but it means I have now been at DUX longer than any other financial company.

One day I will give the full history of DUX Financial, but for now, a very short summary.

On this day, 6 years ago, I was on my first day as a sole operator of a financial services company.  I did not have a name yet, but by the end of the week I decided on DUX.

I had not planned on going out on my own, but the previous Friday that decision was made for me, and it was the best decision for everyone.

What I have learned is that sometimes you cannot see the truth right in front of you and you need someone to give you the push.  Someone did, and now 6 years later DUX is a thriving business with great clients, and continuing to grow.

Thank you to all DUX clients past and present, some of whom have been with us for most of my career, and followed me to DUX.

Without clients there would be no business, and I would have to get a job; so, seriously, thank you.

Thank you to all DUX staff past and present, for helping carry my vision of the right levels of service to our clients and making my life easier, most of the time :).

The future has changes coming, and I am looking forward to all of them.  We are not going anywhere, other than to new premises at some point.  We are here for the long term, giving common sense advice to all who want it, and growing, and protecting the wealth of New Zealanders.
