Who is The Finance Lady?

The Finance Lady was established in 2014 by experienced Taranaki Finance Manager, Karen Healy and her husband Simon Foster


With over 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.

Repeated requests by people she knew, made her realise there was indeed a  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.
