Today I am pleased to announce that the Right Honourable Bill English is joining First NZ Capital as a strategic advisor.
Mr English is well known to the firm and our clients, having recently retired from politics after a career that spanned nearly three decades of public service. Much of his career was spent at the most senior levels of government, and included nine years as New Zealand’s Minister of Finance and Deputy Prime Minister and more recently as Prime Minister.
His wide ranging experience in the fields of public policy, economic planning, fiscal management and infrastructure development will be an invaluable resource to the board and management of First NZ Capital. As well as providing strategic advice to FNZC it is also expected that Mr English will be available in an advisory capacity to our corporate clients.
First NZ Capital remains committed to investing into its home market and as such we are delighted to welcome Mr English into our firm, and we are confident that his exceptional set of skills and experience will help FNZC to further improve and extend our market leading focus on our clients.
Mr English said “I welcome the opportunity to assist FNZC with the development of capital markets in NZ and am looking forward to interacting with the many successful small and large businesses that make our economy work”
