For Investors

Why invest in New Zealand technology companies?

Pacific Channel believes that New Zealand technology companies offer an excellent opportunity to yield substantial returns for investors. New Zealand has world leading tech yet there is a lack of available investment funding.

Investment in high growth technology companies enables job creation, improved quality of life and economic growth.

A significant advantage is enjoyed by New Zealand scientific research due to low research costs and time and cost efficient early-stage clinical studies.

New Zealand has a high per capita population of scientists and industrial engineers. This has resulted in an integrated workforce capable of the manufacture of products resulting from research.

New Zealand has a long history of investment into R&D in academic laboratories and in the country’s government owned Crown Research Institutes.

Development and manufacturing costs are expected to be significantly lower than in most developed countries, with the Government establishing supportive policies and regulations to promote industry growth.

For the second year in a row, New Zealand claimed the top spot in the World Bank Doing Business 2018 report, for ease of doing business.

New Zealand is ranked as one of the world’s least corrupt countries by Transparency International
