With the announcement of NAIF’s mandate being extended to 30 June 2026, NAIF has an exciting pipeline of opportunities at various stages of initial review, due diligence and documentation and we are looking forward to announcing our support for a range of projects across various jurisdictions and sectors in coming year.

To ensure NAIF is best placed moving into this next phase of our growth and development, we have updated and refreshed the organisation’s strategic approach to better deliver on our mission and vision for the benefit of all stakeholders and support a broader range of projects for assessment and Investment Decision. Some of these key initiatives include:

  • NAIF’s Investment team being restructured to support more projects effectively, with a focus on developing strong relationships across jurisdictions and key industry sectors.
  • Innovative Financing Tools & Structures – Seeking to utilise a range of innovative debt financing tools and structures to assist in the development of projects.
  • Developing Partnerships – Working with government and private sector partners across jurisdictionsand sectors to assist in identifying and executing various project development opportunities. As an example, in 2020, NAIF entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Indigenous Business Australia (“IBA”) and the Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation (“ILSC”) to share information, expertise and potential opportunities on the economic infrastructure supporting Indigenous Australians in northern Australia.
