New Zealand has demonstrated leadership in tax transparency. They handle foreign trusts by assisting other governments that request relevant information. This is a major difference between them and tax havens where information sharing with other governments is prohibited. This is what makes New Zealand a perfect location for Cone Marshall. In articles published at http://xrepublic.net/category/business-leaders, the company’s executives called New Zealand the model as far as transparency with foreign trusts, actually using them for tax planning rather than for asset protection. In this environment, Cone Marshall works to strengthen estate and tax laws and has a reputation for offering solutions to estate and tax cases including, consultancy and international problems.
Cone Marshall has built a strong team, providing trust management and trustee services through affiliated companies and they continue to grow by adding subsidiary companies.

They not only provide consultation, but they also farm-out their administrators, lawyers, and banking service representatives to other companies so that they can better represent clients. Cone Marshall’s years of success has driven the company to the highest level of international status. It has become the expert in tax laws and property management.
