The request was partially successful.
From: Adam Irish
Dear The Treasury,
NZ Govt Bond Ownership.
I am writing to request information under the Official Information Act regarding the ownership composition of NZ government bonds for the past fiscal year (2021-2022). Or if available the most recent month. Specifically, I would like to know:
The current ownership composition of NZ government bonds, including the types of bonds held.
The current largest holders of NZ government bonds. The top 10 holders.
The amount and percentage of NZ government bonds held by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ).
The amount and percentage of NZ government bonds held by NZ registered trading banks.
The amount and percentage of NZ government bonds owned by offshore investors.
The amount and percentage of NZ government bonds owned by offshore governments, and which governments hold them (with a breakdown for what each foreign country owns).
Any research that shows the impact of foreign investors on our foreign exchange reserves, as well as the impact of regular coupon payments.
Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
