What qualifies as a growth-oriented investment?

The New Zealand Investment Instructions mention different qualifications for a “growth investment.” What is the difference between a “growth-oriented” and a non-growth-oriented investment in the New Zealand immigration program?

    Any investment the meets the requirements of acceptable investments in current immigration policy, except bond (including convertible notes) or philanthropic investments, is a growth-oriented investment. Under the Investor 2 Immigration policy, there is a multi-step process that needs to be undertaken. The Investor 2 Policy is a point-based policy where the applicant is required to have sufficient points to have their expression of interest (EOI) entered into the pool for the fortnightly draw and to be selected. The points required to be invited to apply (ITA) are awarded for age, business experience, English language ability and investment funds, including bonus points for growth investments. Under the Investor 2 policy, an applicant is able to claim an additional 20 points if their nominated investment is going to be invested in an approved growth investment.

    A growth investment is defined as an investment that is on the list of acceptable investments, except investments in bonds or philanthropic investments. So, all other acceptable investments are growth investments.
