About Us

Who is The Finance Lady?

The Finance Lady was set up by the well-known and experienced Taranaki Finance Manager; Karen Healy.


With approximately 20 years’ experience in the automotive and finance fields, Karen had a genuine desire to want to help her clients with their whole range of financing needs. She wanted to establish a finance brokerage where, she could be offering finance on a silage wagon to a farmer, whilst quoting him leasing figures on a family sedan and helping his 18 year old son into a motorbike loan – all at the same time.


Repeated requests by people she knew, made her realise there was indeed a huge market for this type of facility. No pressure, “finance without fuss” is very much the company motto.


Going to a bank to enquire about a loan can be scary, at The Finance Lady we’d rather sit down over a coffee, have a chat about what our clients a) would like and b) want to pay-then structure some options to suit. We genuinely want our clients to become our friends and recognise that trust and integrity are the most important things in any long-term relationship.
