Direct investment activity continues to increase driven by iwi armed with a $1bn investment capacity, progressive Māori Trusts & Incorporations growing and diversifying, and innovative Māori businesses.
Direct investment in unlisted NZ private companies and start-up ventures may provide attractive returns, growth potential, and quadruple bottom line outcomes making them appealing to Māori investors.
However, they can also carry additional risks like market volatility, management transition, and single asset or geographic concentration.
Identifying, assessing and managing these risks is critical to the preservation and generation of wealth so we talked to leaders of Māori commercial entities of varying size, age and stage to seek their experiences and perspectives on balancing reward with risk.
