General Manager Finance
Anne Edwards, Trust Management’s General Manager of Finance, believes her thirst for knowledge, attention to detail and passion for the stories numbers tell are the traits that allow her to excel at her job.
Anne joined the company in 2015 with an impressive career background. With almost 30 years in the industry, she spent nearly half of her career as Associate Director at UBS New Zealand and has served a broad range of respected and well-known clientele.
It’s the opportunity to support and educate charities and leave them with better financial awareness, and in turn, help them achieve their goals that led Anne to choose to make Trust Management her new work home.
Anne knows that the work she and her team complete here at Trust Management doesn’t end with numbers. What’s most important for her is that through aiding clients with their financial needs, Trust Management also helps them in a broader sense, as they learn to make better decisions or address risks.
As a leader, Anne focuses on mentorship, growing her team’s capabilities in both technical skills and communication. Her emphasis on communication is likely a result of the benefits she’s seen those skills bring personally.
Fluent in both French and English, Anne is well travelled and cultured. She has either lived or completed education in New Zealand, the United States, England, and France.
A master of time management, Anne believes she’s been afforded the best of two worlds, raising a family and challenging herself in an entirely different realm through leading a team at Trust Management.
After work hours or on weekends, Anne still runs at full speed. She can usually be found reading, camping and travelling, cooking and spending time with her family.
Prior to joining Trust Management, Anne worked for the New Zealand offices of Swiss bank, UBS AG where she was Associate Director, Financial Control for the past 13 years. Prior to UBS AG, Anne was an Audit Manager for PriceWaterhouseCoopers both in New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
