We know New Zealand and the opportunities that lie within our shores. In fact you could say that it’s our job to know it like the back of our hands. We help investors, like you, connect with talented companies with high growth aspirations who need capital to achieve their commercial potential on the world stage.

Our partnerships with regional agencies mean that we can also support you to find the right location to establish a greenfields operation. We’ll also introduce you to the other relevant Government and local agencies that could support your investment and make it easy for you to do business here. 

Activities we can support

   Undertaking a merger, acquisition or capital raising

   Establishing a new manufacturing facility

    Establishing your Asia-Pacific headquarters

    Setting up a sales or sourcing office

    Establishing an R&D facility

    Moving here as an entrepreneur or investor

Our role in the investment process

As an independent Government agency, we can help you to develop your initial investment plans and access a pre-screened pipeline of opportunities. We can also link you to suitable New Zealand-based private sector advisors for your investment project. 

Once you’re ready to start due diligence, document negotiations and conditions precedent, we’ll stand aside from the process until these steps are complete. We do this as required by our Government status. After you’ve confirmed your investment, we can work with you to provide aftercare and maximise the benefits of your investment - and guide you when you’re ready to seek your next investment opportunity in New Zealand.
