Performance Objective

The Fund invests in New Zealand and Australian Listed Companies and is benchmarked to the S&P/NZX 50 Index (incl Imputation Credits).

The performance objective of the Fund is to outperform the benchmark over rolling three-year periods after all fees (and other expenses) but before tax.

Investment Strategy

The Fund primarily invests into a portfolio of New Zealand and Australian listed equities. While the Fund is expected to be fully invested into equities, it can hold some cash or cash equivalents. The following investment limits apply:

  • 65–100% – New Zealand equities
  • 0–25% – Australian equities
  • 0–10% – Cash and cash equivalents

The Fund is actively managed, which means that holdings and returns are likely to differ materially from the benchmark. We believe that superior returns can be generated by investing with a long-term perspective. This is because financial market investors are generally, in our opinion, biased towards short term performance resulting in the inefficient pricing of some assets.
