TGH was established in its current form in 2003 and began with an endowment of property valued at $179.7 million. TGH now manages a portfolio of assets valued at $1.65 billion, which includes:
- Real estate (hotels, shopping centres, industrial and commercial property, residential subdivisions)
- Natural resources (farms, forests, fishing quota)
- Infrastructure (Ruakura Inland Port)
- Global equities
- Private equity
A significant portion of the 6,250ha owned by Waikato-Tainui is situated in high value strategic locations, and these landholdings provide a pipeline of development for at least the next 150 years.
All profits generated by TGH fund education, health, kaumaatua (elderly), cultural, housing, employment and environmental programmes implemented by Waikato-Tainui (the tribal development arm) and are reinvested into further growing the business for intergenerational wealth.
