Dieter At Work

Dieter founded Savvy Wealth Limited in 2021.

He has enjoyed a successful career in a large financial services company in South Africa since 2007 in management positions and as an adviser.

After starting life as an accountant Dieter came to the realization that although he enjoys the numbers, he enjoys interacting with people more.

Dieter’s area of expertise is the linking of the “numbers” to the clients' personal goals, intentions and aspirations with the purpose of achieving those goals though evidence based investing and ongoing review.

Dieter At Home

Dieter has been happily married since July 2007 to his wife Suralda.

Dieter and his wife decided to make the move to New Zealand in 2018 with their dog Coco (the chiweenie).

He is passionate about rugby (As most retired front row forwards are) and enjoys giving back to the community as a volunteer debt coach at Christians Against Poverty.

The Power Of Professional Planning

The evidence is very clear – people who build a financial plan with a qualified adviser are significantly better off than those that do not.

A recent study by the New Zealand Financial Services Council found that, on average, people who receive professional financial advice:

  • Have 50% more in their KiwiSaver
  • Receive 4% better investment returns
  • Save 3.7% more of their earnings
  • Travel six times more frequently
  • Report twice the level of ‘financial wellbeing’
  • Report higher levels of general wellbeing

While it’s not always easy to appreciate the power of seemingly small percentages, an average 4% per annum increase in investment returns can make a life-changing difference over a period of years.
