Applying for an account
Our new online investment platform is now live. We’re changing the way New Zealanders
invest with our new platform, Jarden Direct (previously Direct Broking). To ensure
a smooth transition, we’ll be granting clients access to the new platform in waves.
When you join, you will initially sign into your new Direct Broking account however,
when it’s your turn to set up your Jarden Direct account, we'll send full instructions
at that time. (And if you see a tile at top right inviting you to transfer to Jarden
Direct, then it’s time to get started).
To be eligible to open an account you must:
- Be over 18 years of age
- Hold a New Zealand bank account and an IRD number in the same name as your Jarden
- For an individual or joint account - Be a New Zealand citizen or
- For a company account - Be a director of a New Zealand registered
- For a trust account - Be a trustee of a New Zealand-based trust
We regret that we cannot open accounts for:
- Prescribed persons, being a director, partner, managing principal,
responsible executive, shareholder or employee of an NZX Market Participant; or
the spouse, de facto partner or dependent child of any such person
- Australian tax residents. Unfortunately, at the present time we
cannot open accounts or offer share broking services to Australian tax residents.
We do hope to offer this service in the near future. If you’d like to be notified
if and when this service becomes available, drop us a line at
- Children under 18
