Temuera and Chris Winitana have partnered with JMI Wealth to provide the TAHITO indigenous ethical Trans-Tasman service.

 

TAHITO has developed a unique way of measuring companies using Māori ancestral knowledge. In doing so they are applying their best Māori ancestral knowledge for the future.

TAHITO selects listed companies based upon indigenous Māori values. They apply their indigenous value set to measure relational behaviours (Whanaungatanga)
and connectivity (Aroha). They measure people connection and the connection of people to the environment. By building Aroha, a business improves its Mauri (wellbeing).

 

The initial investment offering by TAHITO is a portfolio of New Zealand and Australian shares, selected because of their alignment with indigenous values and their long-term sustainable growth potential. Analysis shows that the portfolio is expected to be competitive against relevant market indices over the medium to long term.

Further, the carbon footprint of the portfolio is significantly lower than a comparable portfolio comprising the Trans-Tasman companies most highly-rated for their ESG performance by investment data provider MSCI.
