Why Corporate Trustee Services?

Corporate Trustee Services' strengths are our reputation, our established roots and depth of experience. We’re the first choice for many New Zealand corporate organisations.


We’re a division of Public Trust, New Zealand’s sole crown-owned trustee organisation and known for stability, integrity and reliability.


We’ve been providing services to a wide range of public and private schemes since 1967, and are retained by many of New Zealand's most respected financial services and investment companies.


We work in partnership with you to help you balance commercial reality with the need to meet your legal obligations. You'll find the way we work is different from other corporate trustees.


Our team has broad financial and commercial expertise, and can offer quality advice based on practical experience. We’ve been involved with a diverse range of corporate trustee appointments.


Corporate Trustee Services operates independently of other Public Trust divisions, but can access its resources and skills as needed. Corporate Trustee Services does not have any commercial investment vehicle of our own, nor are we subject to governance from any commercial or offshore institution.
