Zara Tonks

Trust Director

Zara is an accomplished professional having completed her law degree at the University of Canterbury and being admitted to the Bar as a Barrister and Solicitor in December 2015.  She arrived at Taurus to lead our Trusts Division from New Zealand Trustee Services where she manages a broad range of trust establishment, administration and succession planning for a wide variety of clients from individual families to large investment trusts.

Since her degree Zara has followed her passion for tailored and personal solutions to protect intergenerational wealth and making sure individuals and families position themselves well, whatever their circumstances, especially as legislation is updated.

Trusts are a fundamental part of the service Taurus offers and complements other advisory including chartered accountancy, capital and finance, property syndication and home loans.  While in her previous roles, Zara worked with external accountants and lawyers, with Taurus she now works closely with our own expertise to support the delivery of a complete service, all under one-roof.

Outside work Zara has a wide variety of interests.  Having grown up in Blenheim and with Christchurch now her home, she loves the outdoors, especially the tramping the region offers.  She also loves food and wine, catching up with friends and family, and making the most of new restaurants as they pop up around the City.  She’s active with numerous voluntary organisations, and plays squash and netball, which she’s enjoyed since the age of five.
