Key contacts for investors

New Zealand businesses and Government are united in their desire to seek more overseas investment, and there are a number of private and publicly operated organisations you can contact for help.

Government agencies particularly work collaboratively in smoothing the way for investors.

Using these networks and resources will put you in touch with experts who can tell you more about New Zealand, suggest opportunities, advise on assistance and incentives, and help make things happen.

We’ve split these organisations into three groups:

  • Business networks
  • Regional organisations
  • Government agencies

Additional support

Immigration New Zealand is a useful contact for additional support with visa and investment issues. Contact one of our Client Managers at

Another important contact is New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE), the Government’s investment agency.
