Partnering for purpose

For much of our history, we’ve helped for-purpose organisations protect and grow their wealth to positively impact the wider community. This includes community funds, foundations, charitable trusts, endowment funds, council funds, iwi, Māori authorities and societies.

The difference in our approach is taking the time to fully understand your organisation and your ambitions. We work with our clients to identify what matters most, allowing our dedicated Specialised Wealth Advisory Team to deliver tailored investment solutions. This team of specialists work alongside our advisers to support our largest and most complex clients throughout the country.

Protecting and preserving for-purpose wealth

We understand the responsibility that comes with managing donated and bequeathed funds. Many of our for-purpose clients seek to ensure the financial sustainability of their organisation long-term and must balance this against having impact today. Our Specialised Wealth Advisory Team has the experience to help you find the right balance. We make it our mission to navigate you through ensuring your governance framework and investment strategy support your impact.

Growing family wealth

Family wealth can come with complexities. We work hard to understand the relationships and values that underpin your family’s wealth. Whether you need help with establishing an investment framework for your family, scenario planning or an alternative assets programme, our Specialised Wealth Advisory Team has the expertise to support you. Throughout the process, our approach is always one of good communication, trust, integrity and sound analysis.
