Boutique Luxury Investments

The Grey Investment Group is a privately owned investment enterprise with its foundations set down by the pioneering Grey family. It has now extended its investments into the Greater Pacific and Australasian regions with offices in French Polynesia, New Zealand and Samoa‎.

Our History.

When travellers talk of their adventures and experiences in the South Seas, the name Aggie Grey’s is bound to come up. Built as the International Hotel, the original wooden building was removed from its first site in 1919 and rebuilt in 1933 where the Sheraton Samoa Aggie Grey’s Hotel & Bungalows now stands in Apia, on the harbour’s edge.

From 1933 through to the 1970’s the Aggie Greys Hotel Samoa was visited by movie stars, dignitaries, politicians, diplomats, and executives. It also has many fond memories for families visiting from around the world.

In the 1970’s and 1980’s the next generation started working in the family business. Alan Grey, son of Aggie Grey, saw new opportunities and founded the Grey Investment Group. With these new opportunities, the group moved into various other sectors such as Aviation, Energy, Finance, Manufacturing & Logistics, Sports & Events and Tourism & Hospitality.

Frederick Grey and Tanya Grey were quick to join the group and have since laid the foundations for what Grey Investment Group is today with its future expansion into the greater pacific region.

Recent Investments.

In 2005 and in collaboration with the Samoan government, the Grey Investment Group opened the doors of the $25m USD Aggie Grey’s Lagoon, Beach Resort & Spa. The Resort offers a whole new family holiday experience in paradise and is situated only five minutes from Samoa’s main International Airport. With its superb location the Resort allows travellers a quick and effortless gateway to the start of their Samoan holiday.

Offering full facilities and the legendary Aggie Grey’s gracious hospitality and service, guests are welcomed with a smile and treated as a guest in their home. A destination for romantic escape, a family holiday, a short break or a group event, the resort provides the idyllic location.

New Investments.

More recent investments include investment in Virgin Samoa, the acquisition of Le Meridian Hotel in Tahiti for $15m USD in 2012, the re-development of Le Penina Country Club, Golf Course and Entertainment Functions Centre and Samoa’s first Condominium and Time Share Village development, due to be developed in 2016. The Grey Investment Group continue to progress their portfolio in the Pacific region, constantly on the lookout for new opportunities as it looks to diversify and grow in emerging markets to add to its rapidly expanding asset base.

We’re one of the Largest Private Employers in Samoa.

We love working with people and helping the wider community - the group employs close to 1,000 people in Samoa, and nearly 500 in Tahiti, French Polynesia.

This makes us the largest employer in Samoa outside of the government, ensuring on-going positive contribution to the Samoan economy.

Portfolio.

Our Core Business Values.

We see potential in investments that create jobs for people and provide support for their communities.

Ambitious & successful, we have a prosperous history of new development ventures and investments in world-recognised brands, into all of which we instil our principles of Family Values, Integrity, Loyalty, Ethics, Traditional Ethos and Progress.

Grey Investment Group & Culture.

As part of maintaining the Samoan tradition for years to come, the Grey Investment Group have been instrumental in helping rejuvenate the ancient 1,000 year old sport of traditional long boat racing called “Fautasi Long Boat Racing” within the many Samoan Villages.

This has now become one of the most popular events in the country’s Independence celebrations on Apia Harbour, with races in September called the Teuila Festival Race. These boats can be manned by either men or women and can hold up to 40+ people. Boats can measure anywhere from 85 to 100 feet long.

Backing the Boys & Manu Samoa Rugby.

Grey Investment Group have been proud supporters of Samoan Rugby since the early 1970’s and still continue to be now.

Instrumental in being a driving force behind Samoan Rugby and what it is today, the Grey Investment Group lead by Alan Grey pioneered Samoan Rugby from the early 1970’s. Even the Samoan Prime Minister can be quoted saying “The truth about Alan Grey… Rugby wouldn’t exist in Samoa today without him…” Alan Grey has spent millions of his own money to fund Manu Samoa in the past. Alan Grey was installed as the National coach in the 1970’s and helped the Samoan Rugby Team to some great successes.

Behind the scenes the group collectively helped finance Samoan Rugby until it became professional with the formation of Manu Samoa Rugby Limited. This was helped by the Fay Richwhite Merchant Bank, Grey Investment Group, and the Samoan Rugby Union. The Group has spent millions sponsoring Samoa Rugby over the years and are proud of where it is at today.
