Northington Partners is a leading independent investment bank and corporate advisory business, servicing a diverse client base from offices in Auckland and Christchurch. Our business model is based on a high quality mix of expertise, experience and relationships that we believe is unique in the New Zealand market, allowing us to offer a full range of investment banking advice to private and public companies of any size. We pride ourselves on our client focus, with an objective of developing long-term relationships based on a full understanding of our clients' business. Our success in this area is evidenced by the level of repeat business we have from our established client base. While the relationships are based first and foremost on trust and quality, we like to think that they are also supported by our personable approach – we work closely with our clients and want to make the experience collaborative and enjoyable for both parties. We are engaged by public and private companies of all sizes, family-owned businesses, institutional investors and government agencies. In all cases, we strive to provide clients with independent advice that is based on exacting analysis and has a clear commercial focus.
Our Business was originally established by Rob Challinor and Roy Austin in 1993, who quickly created an enviable reputation and track record that we continue to build on. The transition to the current team started in 2006 when Northington Partners merged with Crighton Anderson Corporate Finance.
