How it will work
Set up by the New Zealand Government with an initial capital fund of NZD$100 million, NZGIF is an independent limited liability company. It will co-invest with others on a commercial basis, in companies, projects and technologies that reduce emissions.
NZGIF has a long-term investment horizon, a flexible mandate and specialist experts and networks.
We can deploy capital in a way that enables us to consider investments that otherscan’t.
This allows us to create innovative structures and solutions to attract additional capital, which will flow into the opportunities represented by a lower emissions economy.
