Our History

Anaro was founded in 1997 by the late Ian Little in the quaint seaside town of Oamaru, to provide commercial investment opportunities for local families.


From our modest beginnings Anaro has grown to become a full-service commercial property investment and management company with a substantial portfolio which continues to service those original families and investors from all over New Zealand.


With our highly experienced team of accountants, we have additionally identified an area to offer further value to our investors and clients through our tailored accounting solutions.


Staying true to our roots, our team is headquartered in Oamaru, and we encourage our investors to take the time and visit our offices in the appealing seaside town famous for little blue penguins, Victorian heritage, steampunk and the recently certified Waitaki Whitestone UNESCO Geopark (the only one in the southern hemisphere).


At Anaro we adopt an investor first policy, offering integrity, transparency, judgement, and good old kiwi values. We pride ourselves on our reputation and relationships with our investors, and ensure our values are at the forefront of all we do.


Anaro Values

  • Integrity - uncompromising adherence to strong moral and ethical principles.
  • Transparency - openness, communication, and accountability
  • Judgement – critical thinking and analysis before decision making

Here at Anaro, it is important we give back to the community we live in.
