About TGH

Tainui Group Holdings (TGH) is the wholly owned commercial entity of Waikato-Tainui with responsibility to protect and grow the commercial assets of our iwi.

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.
