Nigel Kerr no tie (2)-688Nigel Kerr

BAgCom, Authorised Financial Adviser

Nigel Kerr has been an influential figure in the Timaru business scene for many years.

Originally from a South Canterbury farming background, he spent five years in Africa working first as an agricultural financial consultant and then with the World Bank. On his return to New Zealand, Nigel became the manager of the Broad Bank’s Timaru branch, leading it to become the country’s fastest growing bank. He has also served as a director of Timaru Shipping Services, helped establish food and drink processing businesses and worked as a share broker.

In 2005 Nigel established investment and financial planning partnership Cocker & Associates. His wide-ranging experience and knowledge enable him to provide expert advice to a broad range of clients – from charitable trusts to local companies, farm owners, and individuals planning for retirement. In 2010 Nigel went on to merge with other like-minded Financial companies to create the Kepler Group, and now in 2018 he has become a member of Milestone.

When he’s not at work Nigel can often be found working in his garden. He also likes to stay active, playing tennis regularly and skiing whenever he can get to the mountain.
