ING (NZ) takes full control of property trust’s manager


By Paul McBeth

Feb. 4 – ING New Zealand Ltd., the investor and insurer owned by the ING Group and ANZ National Bank, has taken full control of the management company for ING Property Trust and ING Medical Properties Trust.

The local arm of the Dutch insurer took full ownership of ING Property Trust Management Ltd and ING Medical Properties Ltd buying the 50% stake Symphony Investments (2007) Ltd. held in each managing vehicle. Symphony Investments is part of the wider Symphony group, a developer and fund manager specialising in residential, hotel, commercial and industrial property.

The group became half-owner of the ING Property Trust in August 2003, when ING bought the group’s share in the manager of Paramount Property Trust.

According to the companies register, Symphony Investments (2007) is controlled by Symphony Trusts Investment Ltd., of which businessmen Robin Congreve and Colin Reynolds are shareholders.

ING Property Trust last traded unchanged on NZ$.177, and ING Medical Properties Trust was also unchanged on NZ$1.16.

The First Attack On The Independents: Albanese Hobbles The Crossbench
It did not take long for the new Australian Labor government to flex its muscle foolishly in response to the large crossbench of independents and small party members of Parliament. Despite promising a new age of transparency and accountability after the election of May 21, one of the first notable acts of the Albanese government was to attack the very people who gave voice to that movement. Dangerously, old party rule, however slim, is again found boneheaded and wanting... More>>

The only shock about the UK Home Secretary’s decision regarding Julian Assange was that it did not come sooner.

Dunne Speaks: Roe V. Wade Blindsides National

Momentum is everything in politics, but it is very fragile. There are times when unexpected actions can produce big shifts and changes in the political landscape. In 2017, for example, the Labour Party appeared headed for another hefty defeat in that year’s election until the abrupt decision of its then leader to step aside just weeks before the election. That decision changed the political landscape and set in train the events which led to Labour being anointed by New Zealand First to form a coalition government just a few weeks later... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Leaking For Roe V Wade
The US Supreme Court Chief Justice was furious.
