Wadey sisters covering you

who we are 

We are passionate about people and we are passionate about what we do. Each client is a new experience for us, and that’s because we go beyond the surface and really get to know our clients.

We’ll create a customised insurance plan that works with your budget, is flexible, and covers every eventuality in your specific life situation. And we’ll be there when it matters, making sure that your insurance cover kicks in seamlessly when you need it to.


Nicola Louise Wadey (Nicky)

Senior Adviser

I joined the insurance industry in 1989, and am currently a Senior Adviser giving advice on all personal and business risk insurances. My passion for insurance and helping people has resulted in dealing with a loyal and strong group of clients from all walks of life.

I hold various memberships and adhere to all practice standards and the code of ethics for each group. I have completed Level 5 National Certificate - NZQA qualification as a Registered Financial Adviser in line with the industry regulation and the Financial Advisers Act which came into force 1st July 2011.

I take my role seriously and will always ensure all my clients have every bit of cover they need and nothing they don't. 

I am a social chameleon and love working with lots of different people to help protect their worlds and everyone and everything in it!

Leecia Burford

Senior Adviser

In today's fast moving world of digital and online communication, we're losing the human touch. Almost anything can be done online these days, including online insurance deals. Insurance cover is about protecting your family, your health, your lifestyle and your future - and to do that effectively you need someone who is going to take a vested interest in YOU. That's not something you can do online. 

At Leecia Burford Financial Services, you get treated as the unique individual that you are. With core values that focus on providing a service that is built on empathy and compassion, and that is uniquely tailored to each individual client's personal circumstances.

Aronda Thorburn

Office Manager

After working for two of New Zealand's leading insurers in Claims and Management, I accepted the position with Nick Wadey in 2013, as I felt it was time to move away from the corporate sector. 

I have 10 years Claims experience and 5 years Management experience, which I believe has helped me transition into my current position as Office Manager and Personal Assistant to both Nicky and Leecia. 

My Passion sits with Claims, which can be one of the most vulnerable times in our client's lives. I believe we play an important advocacy role on behalf of our clients should you ever need to claim against your covers. It is our role to provide you with peace of mind. 

At claim time we help manage the process for you and help deal with the insurance company. Once a claim has been accepted we will follow through with all parties to ensure timely payment is made, keeping you fully informed along the way.

It is our promise to take care of you when you most need us - at claim time - it's why we are here.
