Our Approach

Our team culture and approach to insurance reflects our desire to connect with you genuinely.

We recognise that insurance can be an overwhelming task for some. This understanding is why we pride ourselves on connecting with you to form enduring client relationships. Logan Smythe & Associates have a professional yet easy-going and energetic approach to establishing and maintaining positive relationships. It’s our desire to educate and empower you to have confidence that you have protected the things you love.

With an experienced team of financial advisers with a combined 40 plus years' experience, we are experts in our field solving complex problems and providing solutions to each individual's situation. Insurance is not a one size fits all.

As a professional service aligned with other professionals, we can empower you to be at the centre of your decision-making to understand what risk you want to retain and what risk you need to transfer. Everyone will have a different approach and outcome based on their experiences and lifestyle.

Our team understands that a successful insurance risk management plan starts with forming an enduring relationship with our clients. We will listen and aim to understand your unique situation to tailor a suitable solution and guide you through the process from start to finish. Using data analysis, we consider your cash flow, pre-determining possible outcomes based on current health and finances to forecast and manage the risk. We empower you to be the director of your journey, achieving desired results and excellent outcomes within your budget by optimising coverage and cost with a comprehensive risk plan. These risk mitigation plans and solutions aim to protect and maintain your current lifestyle should a covered event occur.

Hi, I am Dean Logan, Managing Director and financial adviser of LSA. I present a holistic approach to providing advice to our personal and business clients. I enjoy understanding your situation and empowering you to learn what your Risk Plan can provide to you when you need it the most. If I am not out and about with clients, you can find me in Kaikoura fishing, diving and hunting and on the odd occasion, you will find a client or two tagging along!
