NAB Executive Private Wealth and CEO JBWere Michael Saadie said, “We’re pleased JBWere New Zealand will be part of a leading asset management and wealth advisory business. At the same time, we are committed to continuing to grow our JBWere business in Australia, which is a critical part of NAB’s integrated high-net-worth offering.”
