New Zealand: The Safe Haven Story

New Zealand is an attractive investment destination for investors seeking a safe haven with a stable investment climate and strong economic fundamentals.

New Zealand is an island nation tucked away in the southwestern Pacific Ocean and home to 5.2 million New Zealanders. We believe the country is an attractive investment destination for investors seeking a safe haven with a stable investment climate and strong economic fundamentals. It is approximately 1,600km southeast of Australia, its closest neighbor. New Zealand has two main landmasses – the North Island and the South Island. New Zealand’s key cities include Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Queenstown. Wellington is the capital and political center of New Zealand, whereas Auckland serves as the most populous city and economic center of the nation. Queenstown, despite its smaller local population, prides itself as the second most visited city after Auckland, mainly due to its role as New Zealand’s tourism capital.
