Infratil Limited is a New Zealand-based infrastructure investment company. It owns airports, electricity generators and retailers, and a public transport business, with operations in New Zealand and Australia. Infratil was founded by the late Lloyd Morrison, a Wellington-based merchant banker. Morrison's company, H. R. L. Morrison & Co, is responsible for Infratil's management and administration.


Infratil was one of the world's first listed infrastructure funds when it was established and listed on the New Zealand Exchange in 1994. Its first investment was a minority stake in Trustpower. It expanded into airport ownership in 1998 when it bought a 66% shareholding in Wellington Airport. Infratil was named Deloitte/Management Magazine Company of the Year in 2007.[2] From its founding in 1994 to March 31, 2011 Infratil delivered average annual returns of 18%.[3]


The following companies are either wholly or partially owned by Infratil.


  • Trustpower - 50.59% [4]
  • Z Energy. On 29 March 2010 a consortium owned 50% by Infratil and 50% by the Guardians of New Zealand Superannuation executed a sale and purchase agreement for the acquisition of Shell New Zealand’s distribution and retail businesses and 17.1% interest in the New Zealand Refining Company. The agreement was completed on April 1, 2010.[5] Initially named Greenstone Energy, it began to re-brand the service stations as Z in May 2011. Chief executive Mike Bennetts said that the cost of using the Shell brand, believed to be about NZ$10 million a year, was a factor in the decision.[6] Infratil currently own 20% of Z Energy.
  • Energy Developments Limited. A holding in Energy Developments Limited was sold into the takeover offer by Greenspark Power Holding Ltd for A$139.9 million in January 2010.[7]
