Shakeel Lal

I started in the insurance industry at the age of 18. Although I completed studies in Architecture with a Diploma, I somehow fell into this industry and I became very passionate about Insurance and educating people on why it is important to have the right type of insurance cover having been through personal experiences myself.

I have over 14 years experience working within insurance providers I have gained knowledge of most internal departments and processes which enables me to help with queries from clients to ensure they get the right information.

I was also truly fortunate to have been Awarded Employee of the Year in 2013 by Partners Life. I was furthermore nominated by Partners Life for ANZIIF (Australia & New Zealand Institute of Insurance) Young Insurance Professional of the Year (2015).

I have worked with over hundreds of Advisors in the industry to help with their training, accreditation, development and business growth strategies and the same time, learned from them, their talents and their passion for the industry.

Both Edvin & myself (Net Butiu) are a dedicated husband and wife team.  We started our insurance business in March 2009 by forming an insurance brokering company which provides personal insurances specifically tailored to our client’s needs and preferences.

We provide insurances for around 350 families and work closely with clients being available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

I (Net) used to work at National Bank as Customer Service Officer for 3 years before I became an Insurance Advisor in 2009.

My last position held in the Philippines was a Financial Analyst in a Government Agency. I also completed the New Zealand Certificate in Financial Services Level 5 in 2020 – Core Knowledge Strand and Life & Health Strand.

My mission is to ensure that you have the right insurance to meet your personal circumstances.

Avinash Kumar

Growing up on the tropical island of Taveuni, Fiji, I learned the value of preparation from my grandfather, a coconut farmer. He taught me that just as a sturdy coconut shell protects its delicate flesh, insurance safeguards our financial well-being when life throws us a curveball.

With over two decades of experience in the financial industry, I’ve witnessed firsthand the transformative power of having the right insurance coverage. It’s like having a trusted companion, the Coconut Avi, always ready to help you navigate life’s financial jungle.

My passion for insurance stems from the desire to empower individuals and families to face life’s challenges with confidence. I’m not here to push products or make quick profits; I’m here to be your trusted advisor, ensuring you have the coverage you need to protect your dreams and aspirations.

So, if you’re looking for an insurance advisor who’s as reliable as a sturdy coconut, seek out the Coconut Avi. I’m always happy to chat and help you find the perfect insurance solution for your needs.
