About Us

Our Company

Established in 2006

Strategic Risk Analysis Limited was founded in 2006 by Rodney Dickens, supported by Gary Dick on IT matters, while Denise Pilbrow joined not long afterwards. We are motivated by a desire to help clients make more profitable decisions. Tailored packages make our reports affordable to individuals, and small, medium and large businesses.

Rodney Dickens - Managing Directors & Chief Research Officer

Before founding Strategic Risk Analysis Limited in 2006 Rodney had five years at ASB, including as Group Strategist and Head of Research. He has been a member of the Reserve Bank’s Monetary Policy Committee and researched international interest rate behaviour at the Bank of England in London. He has been Chief Economist at a New Zealand commercial bank and New Zealand Head of Research at two international investment banks.

During his time at ASB Rodney fine-tuned his already considerable skills in housing market research. While few if any can match his credentials and track record at analysing and forecasting economic growth, consumer spending, residential building, house prices, the labour market, interest rates and the exchange rate.  His enviable track record is tribute both to the rigorous forecasting framework he has developed and to his passion for supplying clients with valuable insights; insights he also uses in his investment decisions.

Over the past 30 years Rodney has developed a unique analytical framework based on a rigorous assessment of the key drivers, leading indicator analysis, a hands-on understanding of how many industries and markets work, and sound judgement about human behaviour.  This analytical framework gives him a unique advantage in providing definitive analysis and forecasts.

Denise Pilbrow - Office Manager and Research Officer

Prior to joining Strategic Risk Analysis Limited Denise was Northland Golf Development Manager.  She has experience doing accounts for several prominent Northland companies, for 12 year was the proprietor of a hotel and shares Rodney’s passion for doing hands-on property research.

Gary Dick - IT Consultant

In addition to his work with Strategic Risk Analysis Limited, Gary is the owner/manager of Alternate Routing Limited, a central North Island Technology Consultancy Business.  Gary has over 20 years’ experience working with Web and Information System Technologies and has a passion for Web Centric Information Systems Delivery.
