Why you should invest in Auckland

He aha te take me whakangao pūtea koe ki Tāmaki Makaurau

This exceptional growth highlights Auckland's ever increasing role in the New Zealand economy. It has boosted confidence and stimulated investment.

Our funding approach

Auckland Council's financial strength and stability is supported by a strong institutional framework for local and regional governments.

Every year, we must ensure our operating revenue is greater than our operating expenses.

Auckland Council's 2018-2028 10-year Budget will deliver $26.2 billion of investment into the city's infrastructure.

This funding will tackle the critical issues of:

  • transport congestion
  • housing affordability
  • protecting our environment.

Some of this infrastructure will be funded through debt.

We offer borrowing opportunities through wholesale and retail bond issuance, in domestic and offshore currency.
