Investment Strategy

We plan for long-term social, cultural and economic progress, guided by Waikato-Tainui Whakatupuranga 2050. It’s about making investments that advance the people of Waikato-Tainui – not just today, but tomorrow and the next.

That comes from creating a balance in our investments, and strong partnerships with other experienced investors, including iwi and Maaori organisations. Building on a strong base in property, we now invest in a wide range of enterprises that also generate job opportunities for iwi members: shares, primary industries, and in businesses showing high performance or strong potential.

The ultimate goal is not profit for its own sake, but to see generations of Waikato-Tainui people prosper through the work that TGH is involved in.


Current investments - Future Prosperity

Genesis Energy

When the Government partially floated state-owned enterprise Genesis Energy in 2014, TGH purchased 5 million shares.

As New Zealand’s largest electricity and gas retailer, with a customer base of more than 600,000, Genesis also has a portfolio of thermal and renewable energy assets. One of these is Huntly Power Station, which sits on land leased from TGH.
