As New Zealand’s largest litigation firm, we regularly see the often devastating consequences of fraud. We have in-depth experience in complex fraud, and in assisting and supporting the investigative process, and are regularly involved in sensitive and difficult cases where criminal, civil, employment, and recoveries law intersect. Any initiative that shines a light and increases transparency on the serious effects of fraud in New Zealand, and delves into the ways we can prevent it, has our full support. Meredith Connell is proud to be a founding sponsor of the New Zealand International Fraud Film Festival.
Deloitte is very proud to be one of the founding partners of the New Zealand International Fraud Film Festival. Collaborating with our public and private sector industry partners, we believe that this festival provides us all with a unique forum to engage directly with the realities of fraud, to innovate together across sectors, and to ultimately make a difference through better prevention and detection – and why not have some fun along the way!

The SFO is the lead law enforcement agency for investigating and prosecuting serious or complex financial crime, including bribery and corruption. The presence of an agency dedicated to white collar crime is integral to New Zealand’s reputation for transparency, integrity, fair mindedness and low levels of corruption. New Zealand’s cultural, social and financial landscape is rapidly changing and this potentially increases the threats. To counter challenges in our environment, the SFO believes that one of the ways to prevent financial crime is by educating and interacting with the community which is why we support the New Zealand International Fraud Film Festival.
ACC’s vision is to create a unique partnership with every New Zealander to improve their quality of life by minimising the incidence and impact of injury. To achieve this, ACC must have efficient and effective systems, processes and partnerships in place to help deliver services and bring about better outcomes for clients while maintaining their financial sustainability of the actions.
The New Zealand International Fraud Film Festival provides an excellent opportunity to network with other agencies and organisations, and to share insights in this area.
The Financial Markets Authority is the independent crown agency tasked with maintaining fair, efficient and transparent markets for New Zealanders. We are both guard dog and guide dog for the financial markets. We enforce the law when that is required but we also ensure consumers are well informed about the risks and potential scams that can occur within, and at the edges, of the regulated markets. Taking part in the New Zealand International Fraud Film Festival is an important way to raise awareness about the impacts of fraud. It’s important to bring these issues to life, to stimulate debate, and find ways to combat fraud and scams.
