Financial Markets & Capital Raising expertise

The Global Financial Crisis of over a decade ago had a significant impact on financial markets internationally and in New Zealand. The Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 and related legislation such as the Non-bank Deposit Takers Act 2013 and the Financial Advisers Act 2008 implemented global regulatory trends and radically changed the practice and regulation of the financial markets in New Zealand. However it is not only the complex regulatory environment that places challenges on issuers, fund managers, and financial advisers; there are also increased expectations of governance which must be implemented and managed. If you are a financial services provider or are seeking to raise capital for your business we can help you to pursue your commercial objectives while navigating regulatory processes and requirements.
