Many global businesses have chosen to locate their business in Wellington to take advantage of the lower overheads on offer.

Wellington is life-sized. You would be hard pressed to find a city in the world where it’s easier to get around, where so many outdoor activities are minutes away, or where house prices are affordable close to the CBD. On top of that, you get unparalleled access to a passionate sporting culture, vibrant music scene and award winning cuisine and coffee.
