I am pleased to share that our parent company Asia Pacific Healthcare Group (APHG) is now majority owned by New Zealanders. You may recall that in November last year APHG was jointly acquired by NZ Super and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan. Earlier this month Māori investment fund Te Pūia Tāpapa (TPT) purchased about 4 percent of our company, with NZ Super and Ontario Teachers each retaining 48 percent. Speaking of the investment, TPT chair Paul Majurey said:
“We’re pleased to come on board as co-investors in APHG. Investing in support of a business that cares for the health of New Zealanders fits perfectly with our world view,”
NZ Super Fund and TPT are both long term investors with similar philosophies. This change to the APHG ownership structure reflects the impactful work that TPT does to elevate Māori health and interests which sit central to our own.
