We have been issuing bonds since 1999
With approximately $1.3 billion of debt listed on the NZDX Infratil is one of the largest corporate bond issuers in New Zealand. Infratil has over 14,000 bondholders and has met all interest and repayment commitments on each bond issued over this period.
Buying and selling Infratil bonds
You’ll find our bonds on the New Zealand Stock Exchange (NZX). You can buy and sell them through a bank or broker. You can buy bonds when we first issue them. Or you can buy and sell them later from other investors on the secondary market.
Most bonds on the secondary market trade regularly, but because investors tend to keep bonds till they mature, bonds trade much less often than shares. Prices will change over time and vary with the number of buyers and sellers.
Our latest bond offer
In May 2022 we opened a new offer of 8 year unsecured, unsubordinated, re-setting fixed rate infrastructure bonds. We raised $115,918,500 and the offer has now closed. The interest rate is fixed for four years at 5.93% p.a. and will reset on a fixed basis on 15 June 2026 for a further four years until the bonds mature on 15 June 2030. The Lead managers on the issue were:
- ANZ Bank New Zealand Limited
- Bank of New Zealand
- Forsyth Barr Limited
- Hobson Wealth Partners Limited
- Jarden Securities Limited
Our current bonds
We have 11 bonds on issue. Some bonds are perpetual, meaning they have no fixed maturity date. Bonds with fixed maturity dates are managed so we avoid having to refinance large amounts in any one year.

At the maturity of each bond, we often seek to offer bondholders a chance to reinvest in another issue of bonds with a new maturity date.
If bondholders do not reinvest, or a reinvestment option is not available, the money is paid back into your nominated bank account as registered with Link Market Services Limited (our Bond Registrar).
Our perpetual bonds
We have $231.9 million of perpetual bonds outstanding which were issued in November 2006.
Our Perpetual Infratil Infrastructure Bonds (PiiB) have no maturity date and coupon rate resets each year in November. Coupons are then paid quarterly over the next 12 months. Find out their history and what to consider when buying or selling them.

Bonds with coupons that reset
Some investors prefer bonds where the coupon resets at certain times instead of being fixed through to the bond maturity date.
The coupons of the following bonds are reset at the dates below. On each reset date the coupon rate is updated to reflect an updated base rate plus a fixed credit margin. The credit margin is agreed at the start of each bond for its full term and reflects the perceived credit risk of Infratil and the general market at the time.
|Maturity||Current coupon||Coupon reset date||Credit margin||Reset swap rate||Code|
|15 December 2028||4.85%||On 15 December 2023 (once only)||2.50%||5-year swap rate||IFT270|
|15 December 2029||7.89%||Every 15 December||2.50%||1-year swap rate||IFTHC|
|15 June 2030||5.93%||On 15 June 2026 (once only)||2.00%||4-year swap rate||IFT320|
