Andy Pender

Financial Adviser – Insurance

I have been an insurance adviser since 2020, joining the SwainWoodham group in December 2022.

 Leveraged from my 16 years in professional aviation, I take a strategic and procedure-driven approach to my insurance advice. I see many similarities between insurance with aviation. My clients rely on me to keep them and their loved ones or businesses safe; I don’t take the responsibility lightly when entrusted with a family or business’s insurance needs.

While now only flying recreationally at the weekend, I was previously Medical & Welfare Director for the NZ Airline Pilots Association for several years, assisting members with their insurance and providing support after aircraft incidents and guidance during mental health and aviation medicine challenges.
