Jonathan’s first book ‘Family Trusts in New Zealand’, has become recommended reading for the local trustee industry and his ability to create innovative trust structures is drawn from his professional experience and qualifications including an M.B.A, a Graduate Diploma in Management, a Graduate Certificate in Management.

As Global Operations Manager, Penny Cron takes control of trust compliance. Through timely liaison with advisors and institutions, Penny ensures the continued legal compliance (and therefore the ongoing financial effectiveness) of a trust by managing critical records and their various reporting regimes across international jurisdictions. Penny’s attention to detail combined with her ability to comprehend the big picture goal for clients, results in crucial advice, which is fundamental to establishing an enduring trust structure.
In addition to professional considerations, New Zealand Foreign Trustee Services know that asset protection is a very personal business. We make time to understand what our clients want to achieve with a trust. We enable clients to make informed decisions now and in the future, and we work hard to make sure clients achieve their goals.
