Corey Marsland
Founder & Company Director

Marsland Consulting NZ Limited

 

 

“I began TrustUs to make a real difference. To remove all the physical barriers that have been stopping families from protecting what they have today, while building a legacy for tomorrow”

 

For the last 25+ years I have worked across a number of industries. I started my career in retail working my way to management. Being involved in a number of projects over the years I have held positions in the superannuation, insurance, trustee, financial services and banking industries.

I have worked with leading experts in wealth and asset protection, which is where I gained my knowledge and interest in using trusts as an asset protection strategy to help families across generations.

I now use my expertise and knowledge to build digital convenience. To ensure customers easily access the right expertise, when needed, at the right time, easily.

What is that last burning question you have unanswered about TrustUs? Lets schedule a meeting and get that answered for you.


Jane Eschenbach
Company Director

Change Leadership in Financial Services

 

 

“I have a passion for effecting change and ensuring we are smart about delivering value to customers while supporting specialist advice. It's exciting for me to be part of an innovative team that is plugging a significant gap in the marketplace.”

 

During the last 20+ years I’ve worked with many businesses setting up and operationalising strategy, creating and maintaining strategic alliances, and establishing and building advice and sales capability in adviser channels throughout New Zealand. 

I saw immediately how TrustUs, a robustly researched and built digital financial services tool could help customers to protect their businesses and families. This inspired me to take the Directorship opportunity. 

This click-smart approach not only makes setting up Wills and Trusts easy, it also means advisers can focus on their specialist expertise and employers can help their staff access a tool which complements their investment in employee benefits. The local and global potential of this ingenuous digital platform is very exciting.


Lincoln Watson
Company Chairman & Director

General Manager Digital and Kowhiri

 

 

“I have an immense amount to add having worked in technology, wealth and trust sectors. Having owned my own software and consultancy business, as well as running IT at Goldman Sachs NZ, Craigs Investment Partners, The Trust Company and Perpetual Guardian”

 

My role now includes managing Kowhiri which is a specialist provider of digital services for the estate planning industry with the vision of being the global leader in software in the industry.

Kowhiri took a big leap toward its vision with the acquisition of Documents Plus Ltd whose software is used to write 500,000+ wills annually around the world.


Jacqui Dunphy
Chief Business Developer

 

 

“In this ever changing world, it is a massive breakthrough for this industry. It is so exciting to be a part of seeing TrustUs come alive, and to be able to offer digital software that enables so many New Zealanders to do trusts, wills and even transfer life insurance easily for themselves”

 

I managed my own business as an Insurance Broker for over 20 years. I was a Registered Financial Advisor from December 2010 to October 2016. I worked diligently over many years insuring SME Business’s, pulling together robust insurance plans for all of my customers. It resonates with me why so many hesitate to set up family trusts, due to all the complexities, and over the years I have been astounded by how many kiwis don’t have wills in place.

I believe passionately, in families having trusts and wills to protect their lifestyle. After all, we spend our entire lives building our assets for our future. When approached to promote TrustUs digital services, I jumped at the opportunity. It ties so nicely with my background in risk protection.

Our transformation will only lead to greater positive outcomes for hard working families like yours, both locally and globally. Being the managing director of Perpetual Guardian I have a vision to simplify the way our trustee services are made available.

This led me to start Kowhiri. A company specialising in finding innovative ways to help New Zealanders with Estate Planning. In turn, leading to our support and investment in TrustUs.

Creating Experiences that Matter

 

 

“I am friendly, enthusiastic and passionate about forging a career in doing things that are meaningful and enjoyable. Some may call me idealistic, I prefer the term optimistic.”

 

I've spent several years working as a marketing expert across Australia and New Zealand. Building relationships and marketing solutions for many businesses, to get the most out of one's budget.

I saw immediately how TrustUs and Kowhiri aligned with my values and beliefs and once I met the team I knew I would be having fun too.

I really like the click-smart learning approach TrustUs use. Providing complete transparency for users and providing an 0800 2 HELPME phone line is smart. The potential for positive change in the Financial Services market is massive.
