SHARESIESSonya Williams
Money Spinners

Sharesies is a low-cost investment platform breaking down the barriers that stand in the way of investing, giving investors with $50 the same opportunities as someone with $50,000.

“Traditional finance firms look at wealth management, not wealth development,” CEO Brooke Roberts (pictured left with co founders Sonya Williams and Leighton Roberts) says. “We wanted to make it possible for people to grow their wealth without having to take the property route, which is getting out of reach for many.”

Sharesies is now used by over 15,700 investors, with more than $16 million under management (that might otherwise have been frittered away!).

Stew and Chris Reid
 (pictured) produce top-notch gins at their Reid Brothers Distilling HQ in Martinborough. Their first batch - Reid+Reid Native Gin -was released in late 2015.

As their flagship spirit, Native Gin had to be truly distinctive, Chris says. “We needed to hit the traditional and conservative gin market with a bang to challenge the existing perceptions of what gin should be.”

Reid Brothers currently produces 7,500 bottles of gin per year, with Native Gin joined by two new products, Barrel Aged Gin and Dry Vermouth.
