How we work

At Henderson International we specialise in transferring UK pensions to New Zealand.

Although we’re based in Wellington, New Zealand we make regular trips around New Zealand to see our existing clients and meet new clients. There is nothing like meeting face to face, even though most of our services can also be arranged via email, post and phone. Click here to contact us to find out the value of your UK pensions at no cost to you and no obligation.

 When looking at UK pension transfers the process that we usually follow starts where the funds will be invested and works backwards from that. You need to be happy and comfortable where and how your UK pension funds are invested. Otherwise there is no point in transferring, after all it is your money! 

As the investment of your pension is so important to us, we work very closely with David Hayes at stockbrokers Hamilton Hindin Greene to provide expert investment advice.
