FNZC becomes Jarden

New Zealand investment and advisory firm FNZC today becomes Jarden, connecting people, insights and capital solutions.

The firm’s new website is ​www.jarden.co.nz​. References to Jarden across all company materials, client collateral, signage and other physical and online brand assets have been, or are in the process of being updated.

CEO James Lee said: “Our firm has had several names throughout our history, but we’ve always remained true to our values of client focus, excellence, respect and thought leadership.”

“We’re proud to return to the name of our founder Ron Jarden as we honour our nearly 60 year history, and look towards the future as a full service investment and advisory group.”

The move to Jarden is the culmination of several years of growth and expansion including a number of strategic investments and acquisitions, and the launch of new investment offerings. The firm has also recently signed partnerships with Shareclarity and Icehouse Ventures to provide enhanced access to research and capital for early stage companies.

As part of the move to Jarden, the firm’s Discretionary Investment Management Service offered by its wealth team will be rebranded to Compass by Jarden.

The rollout of the new brand coincides with the firm’s recent investments into growing its regional network, including opening new offices in the Waikato and the Queenstown Lakes District, and hiring additional wealth advisers who join teams in Christchurch, Nelson, Havelock North, Wellington, and Auckland.

New Zealand has achieved strong economic growth over the past decade, driven by migration, tourism and assisted by lower interest rates. Much of that growth has originated in the regions and, as bank services rationalise, Jarden is well placed to help support the people and organisations in our local communities.

“Jarden is committed to helping individuals across New Zealand to manage and grow their wealth and being physically part of our communities is the best way to understand the opportunities and pain points of our clients,” Lee said.
