Trust Management Supports Mental Health

Trust Management's Robust Systems
March 2013

Trust is at the heart of our business. Without trust, the quality services and advice we provide for our clients is void.


With that in mind, we recently engaged the highly reputable professional services firm Deloitte to carry out an independent quality assurance report on Trust Management’s processes and internal controls.


It is of great importance to us that our clients and potential clients have complete confidence in the way we look after charitable and not-for-profit organisations, and the recent quality assurance report provides third party validation of the quality of our processes and internal controls.

Charitable Organisations Feel the Pinch
September 2012

Since responsibility for charitable organisations shifted from the Charities Commission to the Department of Internal Affairs earlier this year, Trust Management, and specialist lawyers in the charitable field have noticed how much harder it is for genuine charitable organisations to register.


The shift, which was highlighted in a recent media article, has meant that charities are coming under more scrutiny than ever before, as Internal Affairs cracks down on charitable organisations making profit. This has led to claims that the department is being overzealous in their efforts.
