The Unit Trust of Samoa has had another record year but ownership of a key strategic investment is about to change.
The Samoa government backed trust's year-end payout of just over one and a half million US dollars was buoyed by a US$400-thousand dividend from its quarter share in local telecommunications company BlueSky Samoa.
The majority owner of the Samoan telco is Spanish communications company Amper, with just under 55%.
The Fiji government owned Amalgamated Telecom Holdings Ltd have 18%.
But as the Unit Trust's chief executive Sa'u Justina Sa'u told Dominic Godfrey, this is about to change.
