Christmas Newsletter

Welcome to our Christmas newsletter.

It has been a busy year for Davenports West and our clients. We are proud of the triumphs you have made and we are glad we could be a part of it.

2015 has been an extremely busy year both at home and internationally. The year will be remembered for the Auckland property boom, Ponygate and the All Blacks winning their second consecutive Rugby World Cup. It will be also be remembered for the passing of numerous New Zealand icons and the change of international balances as tensions rise in Europe.

But as the working year draws to a close our minds turn towards a great Christmas with our family and friends as well as a summer holiday filled with sun, surf and sand. We would like to wish everyone a very safe and relaxing Christmas and New Year.

We look forward to hearing from you in the New Year refreshed and revitalized; but for now, Merry Christmas.

Kind regards
