Rabobank Recognises the Challenge of Farm Succession

Rabobank Recognises the Challenge of Farm Succession

As part of Rabobank’s focus on assisting New Zealand farmers with the challenges of succession planning, the agricultural specialist bank has announced it has strengthened its succession team with the appointment of succession planning manager Chris Haworth.

An experienced agricultural banker who has been involved in family farm succession planning, Chris will be working with rural farming families to achieve their personal, family and business goals for each generation.

Rabobank head of business development New Zealand Karen Kenny says that farm succession has been identified as one of the major challenges for global agriculture in ‘The Future of Farming’, the book emanating from the world’s first Global Farmers Master Class, a meeting of 50 of the world’s leading farmers organised by Rabobank in 2012 to address issues impacting future global food security.
