Pyne Gould completes relocation to Guernsey

Pyne Gould completes relocation to Guernsey, seeking better growth prospects

Feb. 14 (BusinessDesk) - Pyne Gould Corp, the asset management firm controlled by George Kerr, has completed its relocation from New Zealand to Guernsey.

The company made the move after it shifted its focus away from New Zealand investments to Australia and the UK. It plans to list on the London Stock Exchange, where it believes it will have better growth prospects.

Pyne Gould has sold non-core assets and turned its focus to its Torchlight Investment Group, which aims to buy undervalued assets by targeting distressed debt situations.

The company said it has been removed from the New Zealand companies register as a New Zealand company and is now registered in Guernsey, a British Channel Island often described as a tax haven.

The shares last traded yesterday at 43 cents yesterday, having jumped 59 percent in the past year.
