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.
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.
