Cameron Partners founder, Rob Cameron,
died 22 February 2018 following a battle with cancer.
He was 67.

Fellow partner Murdo Beattie said

“Rob will be greatly missed by us here at Cameron Partners and many others in the business and wider community.  Rob has been a great friend and mentor to all who have worked with him at Cameron Partners and was an innovative thinker, always ready to apply his talents to a wide range of business and public policy issues.  He has made a huge contribution to the development of corporate finance and public policy thinking over the years.  His views were widely sought and respected, including in his role as Chair of the Capital Markets Development Taskforce.  In 2015 he was awarded a CNZM for services to business.

Rob was first diagnosed with cancer in 2010 and continued working throughout his years of treatment. The same passion and vision Rob applied to his professional life, he also applied to his health.   He was a true inspiration to all of those around him and the many people who sought out his advice throughout his cancer treatment.

Our thoughts are with those he loved the most – his wife Maureen, his children and grandchildren.”

Funeral arrangements have not yet been finalised but it is expected to be in Wellington later next week.

Rob was a founder of Cameron Partners in 1995.  The firm has grown to 7 partners and in the last 15 years has been one of New Zealand’s largest investment banking firms.  Cameron Partners is the NZ alliance partner of global investment bank Rothschild.
