The New Zealand Endeavour Fund is a New Zealand QROPS open to non-NZ residents. It is registered with New Zealand's Financial Markets Authority.
New Zealand is ranked as one of the least corrupt jurisdictions on the Corruption Perception Index, and is therefore seen by many as a jurisdiction with strong investor protections.

While there seems to be very little information about it ever since, Garrison Bridge says on it's website that they have assumed management responsibility for the New Zealand Endeavour Fund.
The NZ Endeavour Fund changed to Garrison Bridge Superannuation Scheme on the 1st of April, 2019.

In our opinion, the main disadvantage is that, as current UK legislation stands, Endeavour may not offer flexi-access drawdown as it remains subject to the "70%" rule.
Endeavour has recently reached an agreement with Elmo Pensions in Malta and London, and Colonial Simple SIPP to allow transfers to Malta and the UK.
Our opinion is that Endeavour is not a viable option and there are far better and more flexible alternatives.
Never deal with a firm that isn’t authorised as a UK pension transfer specialist.
If your pension is currently held by Endeavour we recommend that you seek an update on your options from a suitably qualified, fee-based pension adviser.
