We specialise in providing Wills, EPAs and Trusts. We help clients plan their estate and protect their legacy.  Perpetual Guardian’s foundations are built on more than 130 years of ensuring the wellbeing of New Zealanders, their families and their businesses. We want to ensure every adult New Zealander has an estate plan and every child is protected by one. We also want to make Wills, Trusts and Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPAs) as normal as KiwiSaver.

We've helped thousands of Kiwis meet their unique asset protection and preservation needs - from the simple to the complex.  We understand the sensitive nature of Wills and support families when they are grieving. Through the provision of expert trust and asset planning, formation and management services across the generations, we've become leaders in the industry and, most importantly, trusted partners with our clients.
