DeVere Group is to open its first offices in New Zealand in January.
The announcement of the new offices, to be located in the financial hub of Auckland, comes a year after deVere opened its second Australian office in Sydney, the firm said in a statement announcing its intentions.
DeVere New Zealand will be headed by John Brophy, divisional manager of the ASEAN and Australia regions.
Nigel Green, founder and chief executive at deVere Group, said: “New Zealand has long been part of our strategic growth plans. This highlights our commitment to this region – a region that we believe has sustainable potential.
“By adding New Zealand to our network of global offices, which includes Sydney, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Dubai, London, Cape Town, and New York, to name a few, we are now truly a 24-hour organisation. There will always be a deVere office open somewhere in the world.”
Green added that the firm’s expansion will also see more wealth managers added to the company’s ranks in the new year.
