Our Team

Meet the heart and soul of Fiducia; the people who make the magic happen


Why, Claire asked, was compliance so hard?

When Claire started Fiducia in 2014 she saw financial and professional service providers were confused and stressed about their regulatory obligations.

Claire knew what she needed to do. She needed to build a firm that provided innovative, accountable, and transparent AML/CFT and associated compliance services.

She needed to become the compliance partner of the best businesses in New Zealand and demonstrate how AML/CFT, and associated regulatory regimes, can be simple and radically effective.

She knows that viewing compliance as a cost centre is a lost opportunity. Compliance is a doorway to integrity and trust in the financial and professional services industries. She sees her clients, her clients’ customers, and the New Zealand economy increase in value when compliance regimes are simple and robust.

It’s Fiducia’s privilege to have the opportunity to work with you.
