Taking a collaborative and environmentally responsible approach to the management of investment assets to support the long term, sustainable growth of Bay of Plenty communities

Quayside was established in 1991 when it acquired a 55 per cent share in the Port of Tauranga from the Bay of Plenty Regional Council. Originally valued at $53 million, investment decisions have resulted in significant growth that has allowed Quayside to diversify its portfolio. At 30 June 2022, its asset base has a market value of $3.2 billion, including approximately $480 million worth of assets unrelated to the port.

Quayside has also provided distributions and capital worth over $640 million for the benefit of Bay of Plenty Regional Council and regional stakeholders. In terms of direct benefits to ratepayers in the Bay of Plenty, this represents a significant saving per household by reducing the amount collected in general rates.  In the 2020/2021 year, the average general rates bill was offset by $348 per property.
