One-Line Bio

I'm the principal the Chatswood Consulting Limited, live and work in New Zealand.


I have built the financial services management consulting practice, Chatswood Consulting Limited since 2000. Our speciality is sales, marketing, and strategy for the life and health insurance sector. We have an unparalleled range of research resources specific to theses areas in New Zealand.

Our team can assist with a range of marketing, product, research, training and distribution challenges. Our expertise is mainly in financial services management consulting - for life insurers, banks, fund managers, general brokerages, and larger distribution businesses.

We enjoy our success and Chatswood has a good range of clients and services in the business that I love.

Russell Hutchinson is also a journalist and is published online at and in print in the monthly magazine Asset, and occasionally elsewhere.

We do not offer any financial advice. If you have come across this blog because that is what you are looking then you are welcome to read, but in order to obtain advice and / or assistance with your planning or purchase of financial products then you should seek the assistance of an adviser. Visiting Financial Advice New Zealand at is a great place to start your search for one.


Family, financial services management consulting, living a good life in New Zealand. I love to read, run, work out, and soon I may admit to gardening.
