Infratil was one of the world's first listed infrastructure funds when it was established and listed on the New Zealand Exchange in 1994. Its first investment was a minority stake in Trustpower. It expanded into airport ownership in 1998 when it bought a 66% shareholding in Wellington Airport. Infratil was named Deloitte/Management Magazine Company of the Year in 2007.[2] From its founding in 1994 to March 31, 2011 Infratil delivered average annual returns of 18%.[3]


The following companies are either wholly or partially owned by Infratil.


  • Trustpower - 50.59% [4]
  • Z Energy. On 29 March 2010 a consortium owned 50% by Infratil and 50% by the Guardians of New Zealand Superannuation executed a sale and purchase agreement for the acquisition of Shell New Zealand’s distribution and retail businesses and 17.1% interest in the New Zealand Refining Company. The agreement was completed on April 1, 2010.[5] Initially named Greenstone Energy, it began to re-brand the service stations as Z in May 2011. Chief executive Mike Bennetts said that the cost of using the Shell brand, believed to be about NZ$10 million a year, was a factor in the decision.[6] Infratil currently own 20% of Z Energy.
  • Energy Developments Limited. A holding in Energy Developments Limited was sold into the takeover offer by Greenspark Power Holding Ltd for A$139.9 million in January 2010.[7]
