Change Signals Growth Phase For Jacques Martin
Governance Change Signals Growth Phase For Jacques Martin
Statement made by Mark Patton, Jacques Martin New Zealand Limited
The linking of Jacques Martin to ASB Group forms a strategic alliance that will strengthen our presence in the New Zealand market.
ASB Group is one of New Zealand’s most dynamic and successful companies, renowned for its innovation and the application of leading edge technology to business systems and the development of new, customer focused products.
Access to ASB Group’s technology, and operating within such an environment, will enable Jacques Martin to enhance its own ambitious plans for development. ASB Group’s expertise in areas such as web development and use, call centre systems, product development, security and online systems is world class.
ASB Group and Jacques Martin share a strong focus on customer service.
Financial institutions are becoming more accepting of the benefits of outsourcing elements of their customer support and administration, particularly to organisations which have a track record demonstrating service levels to international standards and can offer total confidentiality.
Under our new structure we will remain a strong, independent brand.
For Jacques Martin the change of governance is more than a case of business as usual. It is a mandate to forge ahead with our plans to become an even more significant participant in the New Zealand financial services market.
We see it as signaling a substantial growth phase.
Jacques Martin employs some 100 people, the majority of whom are based in Wellington. Currently we have some $3.5 billion under administration for more than 190,000 New Zealanders.
