Ngā haumi Our investments
The Ngāi Tahu Holdings investment portfolio is made up of a diverse range of investments, with farming, property, seafood, and tourism at the heart of our operations. We also directly invest in businesses outside of these industries which; spreads our risk by creating a more diverse set of investments, keep us in touch with new business opportunities, and provides a source of money that is readily accessible.
Our approach to investment and the running of operations is long-term, and guided by Ngāi Tahu values.
We strive to:
- minimise our impact on the environment
- achieve high standards of health and safety
- respect and care for our staff
- invest and partner with businesses that share our values
- embody Ngāi Tahutanga as a distinctive element of our operations.
In 1998, Ngāi Tahu settled historical grievances with the Crown, resulting in a transfer of assets (resources) from the Crown to Ngāi Tahu under the Ngāi Tahu Claims Settlement Act. Ngāi Tahu Holdings was set up to grow and protect those assets by operating successful businesses. An important part of our role is to generate and distribute returns to support the ongoing work of Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu (our tribal council) to help Ngāi Tahu whānau realise their aspirations now and in the future.
