We believe in investing
for a better world

What we do at Rise Financial

We are a financial advisory firm specialising in Responsible Investment. We want to assist more Kiwis to invest responsibly, allowing them to align their investments with their values and at the same time benefiting society and the world we live in.

We recognise that Responsible Investment is the future and we are fully committed to its ongoing development in New Zealand.

While still behind Australia, the US and Europe, Responsible Investment in New Zealand is growing. Active participation in Responsible Investment helps build demand, which increases the likelihood of a greater choice being available in the future.
