Financial advisory firm deVere Group is set to open a new office in the financial hub of Auckland, New Zealand in January 2017.

The new office will be headed by ASEAN and Australia regions divisional manager John Brophy.

deVere Group founder and CEO Nigel Green said: “We’re delighted to be opening an office in New Zealand, which has long been part of our strategic growth plans. This next chapter in deVere’s success story highlights our commitment to this region – a region that we believe has incredible and sustainable potential.

“Our push into New Zealand is driven by consistently increasing demand for our specialist cross-border financial advice from expats and international investors in this region.

“By adding New Zealand to our network of global offices, which includes Sydney, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Dubai, London, Cape Town, and New York, to name a few, we are now truly a 24-hour organisation.  There will always be a deVere office open somewhere in the world,” he added.

In February 2015, deVere opened its second Australian office in Sydney.
