Investing for New Zealand: Insights from 2015/16

1 Overview of Government's Investments and Assets

Overview of Government's Investments and Assets

Quality information is needed to make good investment decisions. Ministers need to weigh up options across strategies, regions, and sectors to determine which combination of investments offers the greatest benefits to New Zealand as a whole.

After those investments have been delivered, good information on the performance of government's assets helps ensure value is being realised, and informs where to target future investment.

This section of the report looks first at the Government's significant investment portfolio, from four different perspectives:

  • what is driving investment
  • where the Government is investing
  • what sectors the Government is investing in, and
  • how the investment portfolio is performing.

It then introduces data on the performance of government's assets, which this year has been collected for the first time across agencies with the biggest fixed asset portfolios.
