Kāinga Ora - Homes and Communities is the largest residential property owner in the country, owning or managing around 65,500 properties that house more than 187,000 New Zealanders.
Kāinga Ora has two key roles:
- being a world-class public housing landlord, and
- partnering with the development community, Māori, local and central government, and others on urban development projects of all sizes.
Kāinga Ora’s main subsidiary, Housing New Zealand Limited, re-entered debt capital markets in 2018, following a 19-year absence.
Kāinga Ora group’s Borrowing Protocol, which sets a limit on external borrowing, was increased from $150 million to $1,080 million in May 2017 to help finance the Auckland Housing Programme under the previous government. Under the current government, the limit increased from $1,080 million to $3,050 million in June 2018 to finance Kāinga Ora's share of the public housing build programme announced in the May 2018 Budget.
Access to debt capital markets is important for Kāinga Ora, given it provides the flexibility and appropriate level of control required for our stewardship responsibilities - over 45,000 of our homes are reaching the end of their useful lives over the next twenty years and need to be renewed.
A strong focus on sustainability and wellbeing outcomes
Our Sustainability Financing Framework explicitly recognises the role we play in improving wellbeing outcomes for New Zealanders, and enabling us to link our financing requirements accordingly.
