HISTORY OF NZTS

New Zealand Trustee Services Limited was created in 2004 by Director/ General Manager Jonathan Cron. 

After years in the industry, Jonathan noticed a gap in skills and services between existing Trustee Companies and other professional entities associated with Trust formation in New Zealand.

Since 2004 New Zealand Trustee Services Limited has grown to offer clients a highly experienced team working from bases in Auckland and Christchurch.

OUR VISION

We aim to educate clients about how to protect and preserve their assets. It is a mission built on a desire to cement our business relationships with integrity and knowledge.

OUR TEAM

New Zealand Trustee Services Limited is proudly privately owned.  We value our independence and what it means for you, our valued client. We are not aligned to any financial institution and don’t accept commissions or brokerages for the placement of funds.

We are impartial, and this leaves us free to work purely for the benefit of our clients.

Asset protection is a very personal business and New Zealand Trustee Services develops business on a foundation of lasting relationships with individuals, families and business clients – often these relationships can span generations.

We want our relationships with our clients to work both ways, we focus on helping our clients and families have a real part in determining their Trust’s direction and structure.

It is easy to be overwhelmed by the decision to form and run a Trust – at New Zealand Trustee Services we walk you through the decisions, and stick with you to see your wishes fulfilled.

All information our clients need throughout the Trust’s life is provided in a timely, cost effective manner in easy to follow language, backed with advice from our expert Trust Managers.
