Background

NWI Healthcare Properties LP (Applicant) is a healthcare property investor. It currently owns approximately 24% of the units in the Vital Healthcare Property Trust (Vital) and 100% of the shares in Vital Healthcare Management (Vital HM), Vital’s manager.

We consider that the Applicant and Vital HM have undertaken previous investments that have been or are of benefit to New Zealand.

We also consider that refusal to grant consent would be likely to have an adverse impact on New Zealand’s image overseas, particularly because the Investment is a major international transaction of which the sensitive land in New Zealand is a small component.
