Harbour Asset Management to support CEO Forum
Date: 17 April 2015
Leading asset manager Harbour Asset Management will sponsor this year’s Fundraising Institute of New Zealand (FINZ) CEO Forum.
The CEO Forum will take place on May 11. It is part of the annual FINZ Conference, and will be held at the Icon Function Centre at Wellington’s Te Papa Museum.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Harbour Asset Management. They’re outstanding leaders in the financial services sector, particularly asset management,” says FINZ CEO, James Austin.
Harbour Asset Management, Managing Director, Andrew Bascand, who will speak at the forum, says increasingly more of Harbour’s clients come from the not-for-profit sector.
“It will be a good opportunity for us to build client relationships,” says Mr Bascand.
Mr Bascand says Harbour is particularly supportive of the work FINZ does in promoting philanthropy and ethical fundraising practises. He says the forum will afford CEOs the opportunity to share and tackle the issues surrounding government funding and fundraising.
“Organisations with sound governance that manage their money well are generally more successful in raising money,” says Mr Bascand.
A highlight at this year’s forum will be the attendance of Hon. Bill English. Mr English is expected to outline his plan for the next two years in social services, including outsourcing housing and other services. He will also explain the Government’s short and long-term expectations of the charity and not-for-profit sectors, including how they can work in partnership with the Government.
