Quayside Holdings is the investment arm of Bay of Plenty Regional Council. Via a subsidiary, it is the majority holder of shares in the Port of Tauranga and is also an issuer of debt securities on the New Zealand Exchange.
Quayside’s initial purpose was to acquire and manage the commercial investment of the Bay of Plenty Regional Council, primarily its shareholding in the Port of Tauranga. Interests in property, shares and private equities have since been added to the portfolio. Quayside continues to seek new regional opportunities for investment with which to diversify its income base.
