Glenn Read

Principal Adviser, Director, FSP92821



Glenn started Quartz Wealth in 2010 when he saw the need for independent quality financial advice in New Zealand.  After the Global Financial Crisis there were many stories of investors receiving poor advice, misleading information about investment products or unethical behaviour in the industry. Glenn wanted to establish a business where clients could be confident it holds itself to higher standards to truly help its clients prosper and live the life they want.

Glenn is a Chartered Accountant (CA), Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF), and holds a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting and Finance) from Lincoln University and a National Certificate in Financial Services (Financial Advice).

He has worked extensively in the financial services industry for over 20 years in New Zealand, the UK and Germany at Merrill Lynch, Salomon Brothers and Schroders.  In New Zealand Glenn worked with the NZ Superannuation Fund during its start-up phase before starting Quartz Wealth. 

At Quartz Wealth, Glenn is the principal adviser and company director.  His broad financial services and accountancy background gives him the experience and expertise to take complex scenarios and make them simple for the client.

Glenn’s family include his wife and three daughters, and he lives locally on the North Shore of Auckland.  He loves playing sports and being outdoors, and is a fan of squash, table tennis, kayaking and getting out on Auckland Harbour in his boat.
