Hello Rowan,


Thanks for your request but we’re unable to provide that information due
to the commercial confidentiality arrangements under which we are obliged
to operate. 


We do endeavour to publish as much information as we can about our
investments into funds, the companies that are invested into, fair
valuations of the portfolio as a whole, etc.  But we are not permitted to
break it down to specific amounts invested into companies via which funds.


We are only able to report this data on an aggregated basis, as we do in
our annual report, etc. Section 9(2)(b) of the OIA provides for
withholding information "where the making available of the information …
would be likely unreasonably to prejudice the commercial position of the
person who supplied or who is the subject of the information” (see
attached).  That would occur with respect to your request. 


If you want more explanation of how we operate, I’d be happy for one of my
team to meet with you and go over the process.  Also, you may find it
useful to have a look at our publicly available reports on


NZVIF Annual Report 2011

Sorry we cannot be of more assistance on this matter.


Kind regards,
