Allan Hubbard A Man Out of Time
By Virginia Green

Allan Hubbard is much loved by thousands of South Islanders, but his finance company Aorangi Securities was investigated by the Serious Fraud Office. Well known for his generosity, his frugal lifestyle and his entrepreneurship, Hubbard is a folk hero. This biography tells his story -- from his squalid childhood in the Depression as a child of alcoholic and abusive parents through to his successful businesses such as Mutual Group, Helicopters NZ, Scales Corporation and South Canterbury Finance. Allan has given back to the South Canterbury region on a grand scale, helping hundreds of young people onto farms, saving good farmers from bankruptcy and underwriting large-scale projects to bring water to the drought-prone region. How did he fall from being the wealthiest man in the South Island? How did the ?most trusted man in New Zealand? come under investigation from the SFO? Whatever the outcome, this is a fascinating read about a Kiwi phenomenon.
