The New Zealand Absolute Return Association Incorporated (NZARA)represents the hedge fund, commodity trading advisor, and absolute return equity industry in New Zealand.

The four objectives of NZARA are:
  • To promote best practice in the New Zealand alternative investment industry.
  • To improve the regulatory environment for alternative asset managers in New Zealand.
  • To promote the New Zealand alternative asset management business offshore.
  • To educate the New Zealand investing public about the benefits, and risks, specific to the alternative investment industry.
NZARA aims to work closely with government and regulatory agencies to improve the environment in which alternative asset managers operate their businesses. As well, NZARA aims to improve the environment for both retail and wholesale investors so they may make fully informed decisions about the products and services they are investing in.

NZARA also aims to make it easier for foreign investors to invest in New Zealand alternative asset managers - and to raise global awareness of the small but innovative alternative investment industry in New Zealand.

As an example of NZARA's commitment to developing a culture of best practice in the New Zealand alternative investment industry, the NZARA Regulatory Committee has developed the NZARA Code of Ethics.

Please note this website has been developed for wholesale participants, service providers and government/regulatory bodies only.
